There was only two possible winners of this race approaching the final furlong as much of the field failed to find their best form as they floundered on the rain-softened ground. Christophe Soumillon skilfully managed to conserve the energy of winner GIOFRA just behind the pace before unleashing his filly with a sustained burst inside the distance to mow down Elusive Kate in the closing stages. A winner over 10 furlongs in France, it was her stamina in the conditions that gained the day against a runner-up who had not raced beyond a mile. The latter was a very smart juvenile and her starting price now looks rather inflated considering the current form of the stable as well. Frankie Dettori gave her a fantastic ride as he allowed her to take command approaching the distance having raced just in the right spot. He pinched a couple of lengths and it almost worked so this has to go down as hugely encouraging considering decent ground would have also served her much better. Siyouma was caught a bit flat-footed over this shorter trip but then finished with great purpose inside the distance. Her effort flattened out a fraction in the final couple of strides but this can still be put down as a career-best effort - she still looks quite gangly and unfurnished and could have more to give. The front trio were clear of the remainder as Irish History and Maybe headed up the pursuing pack. The latter looked ready to launch a strong challenge two furlongs from home but could only muster the one pace. Golden Lilac was sent off a warm order and was expected to outclass her rivals despite dropping back in trip. She saw plenty of daylight on the outside under Maxime Guyon but failed to pick up at all and trainer Andre Fabre felt the daughter of Galileo was too free. It is too soon to write her off on the back of this and she remains a high-class operator. Joviality and Lay Time dropped right out having raced to the fore while the exposed Barefoot Lady made some late headway without ever being a threat. Alanza went right out of the stalls and was dropped in at the rear but could not make much impact down the centre of the track.
