Son of Galileo; cost 100,000Euros as a yearling; half-brother to winners Vitoria (6f-7f Group 2; RPR 114), Indrahar (6f AW 2yo/7f; 93) and Viz Success (Japan 1m1f 2yo/6f) and to dam of Australian 1m2f Group 1 winner Fifty Stars; dam Italian 1m4f Listed/AW winner (102); well bred newcomer but probably not a good sign he's both already gelded, and making his debut as a 4yo.

Verdict

A trappy but decent finale. BORN BY THE SEA is a hopeful choice even as a longstanding maiden, on the basis he will be a decent price. Thousand Tears has to be feared, while Thermoscope does have the pedigree. Midnight Runand San Salvador have to be respected on Jumps form. [Johnny Ward]
