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. Saturday’s Observations features a half-brother to a Group 1 winner.

CAMILLE PISSARRO (IRE) (Wootton Bassett {GB}) makes his racecourse bow for Ballydoyle, having caused a stir when selling for 1.25million gns at the Tattersalls Book 1 Sale. A half-brother to the G1 Commonwealth Cup hero Golden Horde (Ire) (Lethal Force {Ire}), he encounters a well-regarded Donnacha O’Brien-trained filly in Sorella Carina (Ire) (Ten Sovereigns {Ire}), a 400,000gns Tattersalls Book 1 graduate who is a half to last year’s G1 Cheveley Park S. heroine Porta Fortuna (Ire) (Caravaggio) racing for Reeves, Weston, Medallion and Coolmore.
