G1 Irish Derby

ARTHUR'S KINGDOM (IRE) (Camelot {GB}-Madeira Mist {Ire}, by Grand Lodge)
Bred by Skymarc Farm, Arthur's Kingdom was a €260,000 Goffs Orby yearling purchase by MV Magnier. The G1 Criterium de Saint-Cloud and G2 King Edward VII S. runner-up is out of the GIII Dance Smartly H. winner Madeira Mist and therefore a three-quarter brother to triple GI Canadian International winner Joshua Tree (Ire) (Montjeu {Ire}).

CHIRICAHUA (IRE) (Camelot {GB}-Dowager {GB}, by Groom Dancer)
Bred by Lynch Bages and Rhinestone Bloodstock, Chiricahua was bought by Gaelic Bloodstock for €125,000 as a Goffs Orby yearling and was placed in a pair of Navan maidens in the fall for owner Mark Breen and trainer Ger Lyons. Out of the Listed Bosra Sham Fillies' S. winner Dowager, he is a half-brother to Listed Qatar Derby winner Full Moon (Ire) (Declaration Of War).

CROSSFIREHURRICANE (Kitten's Joy-Louvakhova, by Maria's Mon)
Glen Hill Farm spent $425,000 for Louvakhova at Keeneland's January Sale in 2014, with her half-sister Flotilla (Fr) (Mizzen Mast) having added victory in the prior year's G1 Poule d'Essai des Pouliches to her win in the GI Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf. Glen Hill later partnered with Scott Heider on the mare, and Heider now races the unbeaten G3 Gallinule S. winner solely.

DAWN PATROL (IRE) (Galileo {Ire}-Gwynn {Ire}, by Darshaan {GB})
The 23-year-old Gwynn has already provided the Coolmore partners with one Derby winner in Pour Moi (Ire)-who took the Epsom version in 2011 and subsequently provided the partners with the 2017 winner of that race in Wings Of Eagles (Fr)-and Dawn Patrol will need to break his maiden on Saturday to provide another. In addition to Pour Moi and Dawn Patrol, Gwynn has supplied the dual Group 3 winner and G1 Prix de Diane runner-up Gagnoa (Ire) (Sadler's Wells) and the listed-winning Kissed (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}), both of whom have subsequently become stakes producers. This is also the family of Sheikh Mohammed's Epsom Derby winner Lammtarra (Nijinsky).

FISCAL RULES (IRE) (Make Believe {GB}-Gold Mirage {Ire}, by Galileo {Ire})
A homebred for Jim and Jackie Bolger, the maiden Fiscal Rules is a half-brother to the Bolgers' G3 Stanterra S. victress Cimeara (Ire) (Vocalised). The Bolgers' bought the dam for 30,000gns as an unraced 3-year-old at Tattersalls December in 2010, and she went on to win and place three times the following year in their purple and white silks. The second dam is a half-sister to G1 Prix Marcel Boussac winner Gold Splash (Blushing Groom {Fr}), while the third dam is the G1 Prix Saint-Alary victress Riviere d'Or (Lyphard).

GALILEO CHROME (IRE) (Australia {GB}-Curious Mind {GB}, by Dansili {GB})
Galileo Chrome was a €75,000 buyback at Goffs Orby and made his first two starts for breeder Mohamed Ali Meddeb. He was the subject of a private transaction after breaking his maiden at The Curragh on June 12 and now races for the Galileo Chrome Partnership. The winning dam is a half-sister to the Listed Cocked Hat S. winner Michelangelo (GB) (Galileo {Ire}) and Private Secretary (GB) (Kingman {GB}, with the former having also finished third in the G1 St Leger. Their dam, Intrigued (GB) (Darshaan {GB}), is a half-sister to G1 Poule d'Essai des Poulains winner Aussie Rules (Danehill).

GOLD MAZE (GB) (Golden Horn {GB}-Astonishing {Ire}, by Galileo {Ire})
Bred by Apple Tree Stud and from the first crop of his Derby-winning sire, Gold Maze was a 550,000gns purchase by BBA Ireland at Tattersalls October Book 1 and now races for The Long Wait Partnership. Yet another maiden here, Gold Maze is out of the listed-winning Astonishing, who is a full-sister to G3 Prix de Royaumont winner Sub Rose (Ire), now the dam of multiple group winner Subway Dancer (Ire) (Shamardal) and UAE Group 3 winner Secret Advisor (Fr) (Dubawi {Ire}).

IBERIA (IRE) (Galileo {Ire}-Beauty Bright {Ire}, by Danehill)
A homebred for the Coolmore partners, the G3 Derrinstown Stud Derby Trial third Iberia is out of the G3 Renaissance S. winner Beauty Bright. They descend from a Niarchos Family littered with Group 1 winners and champions including Spinning World (Nureyev), Denon (Pleasant Colony), Aldebaran (Mr. Prospector) and Chimes Of Freedom (Private Account).

KING OF THE THRONE (Hard Spun-You Make Luvin Fun, by A.P. Indy)
The five-times raced maiden King Of The Throne was bred by Mount Brilliant Farm & Ranch and was a $60,000 purchase by Friars Lough Stables from Keeneland September. The winning dam is a half-sister to the multiple graded stakes winning juvenile Classic Elegance (Carson City), and it is also the family of the GI Kentucky Oaks winner Believe You Can (Proud Citizen).

ORDER OF AUSTRALIA (IRE) (Australia {GB}-Senta's Dream {GB}, by Danehill)
Bred by Annemarie O'Brien's Whisperview Trading, Order Of Australia races for the Coolmore partners. He has big footsteps to follow in, being a three-quarter brother to the four-time Grade/Group 1 winner Iridessa (Ire) (Ruler Of The World {Ire}). O'Brien purchased the dam, a daughter of Bobby Frankel's GI Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf victress Starine (Fr) (Mendocino), for 14,000gns from Tattersalls December in 2013.

SANTIAGO (IRE) (Authorized {Ire}-Wadyhatta {GB}, by Cape Cross {Ire})
Bred by Lynch Bages, Santiago was an eye-catching winner of the G2 Queen's Vase S. last week at Royal Ascot and could prove one of the better ones left by his Derby-winning sire. Further Derby clout is provided by broodmare sire Cape Cross (Ire), and his dam Wadyhatta (GB) is a half-sister to last year's G1 Prix du Jockey Club third and recent listed winner Motamarris (Ire) (Le Havre {Ire}). G1 Prix Jacques le Marois winner and successful sire Tamayuz (GB) appears under the third dam. G1 Prix du Jockey Club winner Anabaa Blue (GB) (Anabaa) falls under the fourth dam, Allez Les Trois, who is a half-sister to Urban Sea.

SHERPA (IRE) (Zoffany {Ire}-Eirnin {Ire}, by Galileo {Ire})
Another bred by Whisperview Trading, the Gallinule third Sherpa is from the family of the same connections' G1 Dewhurst S. winner Beethoven (Ire) (Oratorio {Ire}). The page under the massively accomplished third dam Luv Luvin' (Raise A Native) includes the American sprint champion Stormy Liberal (Stormy Atlantic), G1 Prix de la Foret victor Dolphin Street (Fr) (Bluebird), outstanding miler Henrythenavigator (Kingmambo) and Irish Classic and Breeders' Cup winner Magician (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}.

SUNCHART (GB) (Teofilo {Ire}-Hometime {GB}, by Dubai Destination)
Bred by Newsells Park Stud, Sunchart was a smart foal to yearling pinhook, having been bought initially by Five Star Bloodstock for 6,500gns before trainer Andrew Slattery scooped him up for €62,000 at Goffs Orby, and he now races for owner Pat Garvey. Sunchart has plenty of Classic influences in his pedigree; his second dam, the G2 Sun Chariot S. winner Red Slippers (Nureyev), is a half-sister to G1 Irish Derby winner Balanchine and also produced the G1 Prix de Diane winner West Wind (GB) (Machiavellian). Red Slippers is also the second dam of the dual G1 Dubai World Cup winner Thunder Snow (Ire) (Helmet {Aus}) and his four stakes-winning half-sisters.

TIGER MOTH (IRE) (Galileo {Ire}-Lesson In Humility {Ire}, by Mujadil)
Tiger Moth races as a homebred for the Coolmore partners and is out of the G3 Ballyogan S. winner and dual Group 1-placed sprinter Lesson In Humility (Ire) (Mujadil), who has already produced the Listed Marble Hill S. winner Coach House (Ire) (Oasis Dream {GB}) and the G3 Grangecon S. second Butterscotch (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}).

NEW YORK GIRL (IRE) (New Approach {Ire}-Annee Lumiere {Ire}, by Giant's Causeway)
The lone filly taking up this challenge, New York Girl was a 32,000gns Tattersalls December foal purchase by Cathy Grassick. Last year's G3 Weld Park S. winner, who was bred by PF Kelly and Peter Kelly and now races for Healthy Wood Co Ltd, is out of the French listed-placed Annee Lumiere and is a full-sister to the listed-placed Broadway Duchess (Ire). Annee Lumiere is a half-sister to graded winners Keep Quiet (Fr) and Little Treasure (Fr). The latter has produced three stakes winners headed by the Grade II winner and Grade I-placed More Chocolate (Malibu Moon).
