Dubawi | Darley

Observations on the European Racing Scene turns the spotlight on the best European races of the day, highlighting well-pedigreed horses early in their careers, horses of note returning to action and young runners that achieved notable results in the sales ring. Tuesday's Insights features a daughter of G1SW Romantica (GB).

AMBOISE (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}) takes the eye on debut, being a daughter of the track's G1 Prix Jean Romanet heroine Romantica (GB) (Galileo {Ire}) who was in turn a daughter of the luminary Banks Hill (GB) (Danehill). As in the case of the dam and second dam, Andre Fabre has charge of Juddmonte's April-foaled bay whose opponents include George Strawbridge's Reasonable (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}), a Freddy Head-trained daughter of his high-class producer In Clover (GB) (Inchinor {GB}), responsible for Dansili's With You (GB) and We Are (Ire) and a third group 1 winner in Call The Wind (GB) (Frankel {GB}).

DRAGON ICON (IRE) (Lope De Vega {Ire}), the 360,000gns Book 1 full-brother to the GI Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf heroine Aunt Pearl (Ire), impressed on debut and ran through the line strongly to suggest this win is only the beginning of his story.
