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 son of G1SW Marylebone.

17.30 Chelmsford City, Nov, £13,999, 2yo, 8f (AWT)
Michael Tabor's WIGMORE STREET (American Pharoah) is an unraced half-brother to two black-type performers out of GI Matron S. heroine Marylebone (Unbridled's Song) and starts out for the Simon and Ed Crisford yard in this 11-runner contest. He encounters Godolphin's once-raced winner Tagabawa (GB) (New Approach (Ire), who is a Charlie Appleby-trained homebred son of MG1SP G1 Poule d'Essai des Pouliches third Tasaday (Nayef).

14.25 Lingfield, Nov, £6,800, 2yo, f, 7f 1y (AWT)
Godolphin homebred Star Guest (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}), a daughter of MGSW G1 Prix d'Ispahan third Usherette (Ire) (Shamardal), hit the front inside the final furlong, but was collared by Glory Lily (GB) (Shamardal) in the dying strides and finished a neck second to that Charlie Appleby-trained stablemate.

16.30 Kempton, Nov, £6,800, 2yo, 8f (AWT)
Fitri Hay's newcomer Clan Chieftain (GB) (Gleneagles {Ire}), a full-brother to this year's GI Man O' War S. hero Highland Chief (Ire), was never a factor on debut and finished just over nine lengths behind the winner in 10th.
