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 ‘TDN Rising Star’.

16.45 Newmarket, Novice, £20,000, 3yo, 10fT
ENDLESS VICTORY (GB) (Teofilo {Ire}) earned TDN Rising Star status at Wolverhampton in February and is the Charlie Appleby first string in a race he likes to target with his potential Classic prospects. A full-brother to the operation’s G1 Melbourne Cup hero Cross Counter (GB), he is joined by Kalidasa (GB) (Frankel {GB}), the 2.8milliongns Tattersalls Book 1 topper and son of the well-connected G3 Musidora S. winner and G1 Prix de l’Opera third So Mi Dar (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}) and they encounter Sheikh Ahmed Al Maktoum’s Newcastle debut winner Meydaan (Ire) (Frankel {GB}), a Simon and Ed Crisford-trained son of the G1 Pretty Polly S. heroine Nezwaah (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}).

14.25 Newmarket, Debutantes, £20,000, 3yo, 8fT
LEAD ARTIST (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}) is one of the eyecatching members of this time-honoured “Wood Ditton” maiden for unraced 3-year-olds which retains the potential to throw up something special once in a while. Juddmonte’s John and Thady Gosden-trained colt is the first foal out of the G2 Prix de Sandringham winner and G1 Prix Rothschild third Obligate (GB) (Frankel {GB}), a granddaughter of the operation’s great broodmare Hasili (Ire) (Kahyasi {Ire}). Therefore linked to two top-level Dubawi performers in the full-brothers Ironclad (GB) and Forge (GB), he lines up against Godolphin’s gelding First Conquest (GB) (Teofilo {Ire}), a Charlie Appleby-trained half-brother to the G1 Jebel Hatta winner Blair House (Ire) (Pivotal {GB}).
