Coolmore’s Capulet (Justify–Wedding Vow {Ire}, by Galileo {Ire}) followed up an Aug. 15 debut victory at Dundalk with placed efforts in September’s G2 Golden Fleece S. and G2 Royal Lodge S., and went postward for Thursday’s Listed Boodles Raindance Dee S. at Chester coming back off a third over one mile at Chelmsford, behind the reopposing Bracken’s Laugh (Ire) (Zoffany {Ire}), on sophomore return last month.

Sent into an immediate lead by Ryan Moore, the 7-2 chance held sway throughout the extended 10-furlong test and stayed on relentlessly under continued urging inside the final half-mile to hold the late threat of Bracken’s Laugh by a half-length and secure a record-equalling 11th renewal for Aidan O’Brien. Last month’s impressive Listed Feilden S. winner Jayarebe (Fr) (Zoffany {Ire}) finished 3 1/4 lengths adrift in third.

Capulet is the fifth of seven foals and one of two scorers out of G2 Kilboy Estate S. victrix and G1 Nassau S. runner-up Wedding Vow (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}), herself a full-sister to five black-type performers out of G1 Oaks runner-up Remember When (Ire) (Danehill Dancer {Ire}). They include G1 Derby hero Serpentine (Ire), G3 Blue Wind S. victrix and G1 Oaks third Bye Bye Baby (Ire) and G3 Gallinule S. winner Beacon Rock (Ire). Remember When, in turn, is kin to MG1SW sire Dylan Thomas (Ire) (Danehill), G1SW European champion Queen’s Logic (Ire) (Grand Lodge) and G1 1000 Guineas heroine Homecoming Queen (Ire) (Holy Roman Emperor {Ire}). The April-foaled bay is a half-brother to the unraced 2-year-old colt Saints N Scholars (Ire) (Quality Road) and a yearling filly by Wootton Bassett (GB).
