Waldgeist found a smooth rhythm under the cover of midfield after the initial strides of this unveiling. Angling to the outside for open runway with 2 1/2 furlongs remaining, the well-backed 3-10 favourite quickened in impressive fashion to swoop for control entering the final eighth and powered clear to easily prevail by two lengths from Called to the Bar (Ire) (Henrythenavigator). Waldgeist, half to a yearling filly by New Approach (Ire) and a colt foal by Sea the Stars (Ire), is the first scorer produced by G3 Prix Penelope victress Waldlerche (GB) (Monsun {Ger}), herself a half-sister to G1 St Leger-winning British highweight stayer Masked Marvel (GB) (Montjeu {Ire}) and the stakes-winning Waldnah (GB) (New Approach {Ire}). The chestnut’s second dam is G2 Falmouth S. runner-up Waldmark (Ger) (Mark of Esteem {Ire}), who is a half-sister to G1 Deutsches Derby hero Waldpark (Ger) (Dubawi {Ire}) and a full-sister to the dam of MGSW sire Wiesenpfad (Fr) (Waky Nao {GB}), from a family which includes this year’s GI Man o’ War S. victor Wake Forest (Ger) (Sir Percy {GB}). Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, €13,500.
