Galileo's two lots on offer include a colt out of the Street Cry mare Better Not Cry who is from the family of Grade 1 heroine Rags To Riches (lot 165), and a colt out of the Grade 1-winning Muhtathir mare Mauralakana (176).

Among the Frankel lots set go through the ring are a half-brother to Group 1 winner and leading Melbourne Cup hope Hartnell (166), and a half-brother to Group 3 heroine Ladies Are Forever and the Group 1-placed Hoof It (146).

Proven Grade/Group 1 American-based sires City Zip, First Defence, Kitten's Joy and Medaglia D'Oro all have lots catalogued as do first-crop sires Camelot, Cityscape, Dawn Approach and Lethal Force.

Tattersalls chairman Edmond Mahony said: "The Tattersalls December Yearling Sale is a consistent source of Group 1 winners and this year's catalogue looks a bit special.

"Nine of the current top ten sires in Britain and Ireland have yearlings catalogued and as well as 17 yearlings eligible for £25,000 Tattersalls October Book 1 Bonuses, owners will find 30 more eligible for either the £150,000 Tattersalls October Auction Stakes or the €300,000 Tattersalls Ireland Super Auction Stakes and nearly 100 eligible for the Plus 10 scheme."
