Cityscape {16.1HH} is the spitting image of his sire, Selkirk, who served the breeding industry so well. He is a noble horse ~ very bold, tough and brave ~ and he’s a good mover with a wonderful temperament. Consistency is his middle name and he had terrific speed. The performance he put up in the Duty Free was incredible, breathtaking! It was a course record, and he won easing down. And to run second twice to Excelebration ~ quite something when you remember that on official ratings Excelebration is the best horse Aidan O’Brien has ever trained.’ ROGER CHARLTON
