Dubawi, the sire of 1.1 million gns purchase Inner City | 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. Thursday's Insights features a regally-bred son of Dubawi and G1SW Urban Fox.

INNER CITY (IRE) (Dubawi {Ire}) is one of two Godolphin newcomers to catch the eye in one of the initial seven-furlong 2-year-old races, being a 1.1million gns Book 1 graduate and second foal out of the G1 Pretty Polly S. heroine Urban Fox (GB) (Foxwedge {Aus}). Charlie Appleby, who has won this for the last three years including most recently with one of 2022's leading lights Naval Power (GB) (Teofilo {Ire}), saddles the February-foaled bay while Saeed bin Suroor unveils Royal Army (GB) (Masar {Ire}). A son of his stable's G1 Yorkshire Oaks winner Punctilious (GB) (Danehill), he is therefore a half-brother to another of the trainer's classy performers in the G3 Autumn S. winner Military March (GB) (New Approach {Ire}).
