Dubawi | Darley Stallions

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 Observations features a half-brother to Group 1 winner Quadrilateral (GB).

THESIS (GB) (Kingman {GB}) is an intriguing newcomer in the Juddmonte silks for the Roger Charlton stable, being a half-brother to their G1 Fillies' Mile-winning Quadrilateral (GB) (Frankel {GB}). Also a full-brother to the useful listed-placed seven-furlong handicapper Boardman (GB), the May-foaled bay from the family of Three Valleys (Diesis {GB}) meets The Queen's course-and-distance runner-up Dukedom (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}), a John and Thady Gosden-trained son of the G3 Nell Gwyn S. winner and dual Group 1-placed Nathra (Ire) (Iffraaj {GB}).

STONE AGE (IRE) (Galileo {Ire}) makes his debut for Ballydoyle, with Ryan Moore in the saddle in preference to the stable's Changingoftheguard (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}).
