Guardia Svizzera was previously trained in Ireland by John Oxx, having won 1 of his 8 starts. His only win to date came in a 7f maiden at Fairyhouse, in which he makes all and very impressive pulling away and then holding off a late challenge (It's well worth a watch).
Guardia Svizzera is by Holy Roman Emperor who stands at Coolmore Ireland. Holy Roman Emperor has twice been the Champion sire of 2yo’s in Europe and has sired numerous group level performing horses including Homecoming Queen (1000 Guineas), Banimpire (Ribblesdale) and Rich Legacy (May Hill Stakes).
The Dam, Winged Harriet, was trained by William Haggas and was lightly raced, winning 1 of her 4 starts.
Even though Guardia Svizzera only managed a modest racing record whilst in Ireland, in the capable hands of Roger Fell, we are sure he can find that bit extra from him, as he has done with other horses we have placed with Roger from other yards.
