The auction takes place at NOFA Quarantine on Saturday from 6.30pm local time
Godolphin has a sizeable draft among the 41 lots on offer for the Racing In Dubai September Sale on Saturday, a sale which was topped last year by the operation's Discovery Island, who sold to Satish Seemar for AED 600,000 (approx £120,000/€140,000).
Among the lots consigned by Sheikh Mohammed's operation this year are French Group and Listed-placed sons of Frankel and War Front in Syrtis (Lot 32) and Telemaque (38), as well as Eastern World (42), a winning Dubawi half-brother to dual Dubai World Cup winner Thunder Snow, and Act Of Wisdom (23), a winning full-brother to Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf scorer Line Of Duty and a 1.1 million guineas purchase from Tattersalls Book 1.
The three-year-old gelding won three of his four starts for Charlie Appleby at two last year and remains lightly raced with only seven races under his belt.
Other lots include Sheringham (3), a twice-raced Lope De Vega half-brother to Derrinstown Stud Derby Trial winner Cormorant, the placed Dubawi gelding Branwell (14), out of the Group 3-winning Emily Bronte and a half-brother to two Group winners, plus First Order (22), a Dubawi half-brother to Autumn Stakes winner and 2,000 Guineas fourth Military March out of Yorkshire Oaks heroine Punctilious.
