Ulysses Colt Takes The Eye In Newmarket Cambridgeshire Meeting Opener

Ulysses | Amy Lanigan

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 Sacred (GB) (Exceed And Excel {Aus}).

1.15 Newmarket, Mdn, £10,000, 2yo, c/g, 8fT
A DUBLIN LAD (GB) (Ulysses {Ire}) is slated to be the first favourite of Newmarket's three-day Cambridgeshire meeting which plays host to some exciting juveniles and is one from John and Thady Gosden's crew who sports the Derby-winning silks of Saeed Suhail. A 300,000gns Book 1 graduate, which made him the sire's clear highest-priced progeny sold at auction last year, the April-foaled bay is a half-brother to the G2 Hungerford S. winner Sacred (GB) (Exceed And Excel {Aus}) who reminded everybody what a class act she is last week at Newbury. In the maiden won in recent times by Telescope (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}), Eminent (Ire) (Frankel {GB}) and Ghaiyyath (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}), another interesting contender is the similarly-unraced William Haggas-trained Garden Route (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}), a son of the G1 S A Nursery winner Cloth Of Cloud (SAf) (Captain Al {SAf}) from the family of Artie Schiller who represents Magnier/Shanahan/Nagle/Kantor.
