BALTIC GOLD (IRE) (Golden Horn {GB}) is the first foal out of the G1 Prix Vermeille winner Baltic Baroness (Ger) (Shamardal) who debuts for the same Gestut Ammerland-Andre Fabre stable. The January-foaled descendant of the high-class Borgia (Ger) (Acatenango {Ger}) meets a trio of similarly well-connected peers in the fellow colts Scenario (Ger) (Soldier Hollow {GB}), a Waldemar Hickst-trained half-brother to the Group 1 winner Scalo (GB) (Lando {Ger}), and Westward (GB) (Dansili {GB}), George Strawbridge’s full-brother to With You (GB) and We Are (Ire) and half to Call the Wind (GB) (Frankel {GB}) from the Freddy Head stable, as well as The Aga Khan’s Rosala (Fr) (Golden Horn {GB}), an Alain de Royer-Dupre-trained daughter of the G1 Prix Marcel Boussac winner Rosanara (Fr) (Sinndar {Ire}).

5.50 Compiegne, Mdn, €20,000, 3yo, 7fT
CLOUDY (IRE) (Dubawi {Ire}) is the third foal and first filly out of George Strawbridge’s six-times Group 1-winning sensation Moonlight Cloud (GB) (Invincible Spirit {Ire}). Taking on 13 rivals, 10 of whom have experience, the March-foaled bay would not have to be out of the ordinary to make a winning start.
