Virtual is the fifth foal out of his dam Virtuous, and is a brother to 1m 2f winner Virtuosity, a three-parts brother to Coventry stakes winner Iceman and a half brother to the winners Liberty and Peace. The dam is from the family of Entrepreneur, Dance A Dream and Exclusive.

This is a first Group One of the season for Cheveley Park sire Pivotal, whose daughter Sariska ran a fine Group Three Oaks trial at York this week. The son of Polar Falcon now has 25 winners in Europe this year from 119 runners; Mocklershill Stables in Ireland have sold all three Pivotal two-year-olds sold at auction this spring for an average of £88,000.
