Godolphin’s Space Blues (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}) arrived at a dank Nottingham for his late-season debut and lit up proceedings with a stunning performance to earn ‘TDN Rising Star’ status for the in-form Charlie Appleby yard. Positioned in a stalking second after an alert getaway, the 2-1 second favourite made smooth headway on the bridle in the straight to trouble 5-4 pick Private Secretary (GB)(Kingman {GB}) approaching the quarter-mile marker and quickened in impressive fashion once allowed an inch of rein at the eighth pole to easily overpower that rival by 2 1/4 lengths. The homebred chestnut becomes the fourth individual scorer produced by G2 Challenge S. victress Miss Lucifer (Fr) (Noverre) and he is thus a half-brother to MGSW G2 Al Maktoum Challenge and G2 UAE Oaks winner Shuruq (Elusive Quality), a yearling filly by Exceed and Excel (Aus) and a filly foal by Night of Thunder (Ire). Miss Lucifer is out of a winning half-sister to G2 King Edward VII S.-winning sire Amfortas (Ire) (Caerleon) and fellow sires Chevalier (Ire) (Danehill) and Chief Lone Eagle (Giant’s Causeway). She is also kin to G3 Prix de Royaumont victress Legend Maker (Ire) (Sadler’s Wells), herself the dam of G1 1000 Guineas heroine Virginia Waters (Kingmambo), and to the dam of G1 Matron S. victress Chachamaidee (Ire) (Footstepsinthesand {GB}).
