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. Friday's Observations features a son of a Group 1 winner.

13.40 Deauville, Mdn, €27,000, unraced 3yo, c/g, 9 1/2f (AWT)
Godolphin's ILES ET AILES (GB) (Shamardal) is an Andre Fabre-trained son of G1 Prix Saint-Alary heroine Wavering (Ire) (Refuse To Bend {Ire}) and thus kin to a group-placed trio headed by dual stakes-winning G2 Prix de Sandringham runner-up Life In Motion (Ire) (Sea The Stars {Ire}). His nine unraced rivals include Alain and Gerard Wertheimer's homebred Double Major (Ire) (Daiwa Major {Jpn}), who is a gelded half-brother to G3 Prix de Guiche winner Flop Shot (Ire) (New Approach {Ire}) out of a stakes-placed half-sister to G1 Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud victrix Plumania (GB) (Anabaa), from the Christophe Ferland yard.
