Siyouma proves too strong for Elusive Kate at Newmarket

Siyouma proves too strong for Elusive Kate at Newmarket

Francois Doumen's Siyouma ensured that the Kingdom Of Bahrain Sun Chariot Stakes stayed in France.

Rod Collet's brilliant racemare Sahpresa had won the last three renewals of Newmarket's mile contest and it was another Gallic raider that took the spoils as the favourite, Beauty Parlour, formerly trained in France failed to run her race.

Laugh Out Loud set out to make every yard as she had tried to do in the Matron Stakes but Gerald Mosse had the four year old to the fore of the chasing pack with Elusive Kate for company.

The daughter of Medicean crept closer from halfway and ran on strongly on the far side of the track to score by three parts of a length from Elusive Kate.

John Gosden's three year old has been a model of consistency since returning to action in July and ran a fine race in defeat.

Unlucky Loser

She pecked coming out of the stalls with William Buick doing well to keep the partnership intact but soon recovered and had every chance despite edging towards the centre of the track when she made her challenge.

Buick felt she was an unlucky loser saying: "She stumbled in the gate and that is when she spread a plate. It has cost her the race."

Laugh Out Loud held on for third but Beauty Parlour, perfectly placed throughout, failed to pick up when asked by Christophe Soumillon.

Gamilati never looked to be travelling while Chachamaidee, trained like the favourite by Sir Henry Cecil, rounded off a disappointing race for the popular handler in failing to make significant ground from off the pace.

"I was worried about the ground because she is better on a softer surface. Every time she's done a bit of work on the soft she's flown," said the winning trainer.

"She has been improving through the year and only came to herself when she came over to run in the Falmouth. She was quite immature and hardly ran at three. She is easy to train, has an easy temperament and Gerald said he won more easily that it may have looked."

Races in France, Canada and Hong Kong are now potential targets for Siyouma.
