The race was gradually decapitated with the successive falls of MAGIC MARVEL, THE SCHEME , ICEO MADRIK and in particular ofINEDIT OF CIERGUES who was clearly in the lead when he committed the irreparable jump from the wall, before entering the final bend. As for UNDIVIDED, He was stopped. To finish, GESSY RAISELLE was struggling with DIAMOND CARL and IN LOVE. Although losing ground between the last two obstacles, because of a loose horse, GESSY RAISELLE came back finished strong on the flat to clearly dominate, by 8 lengths. DIAMOND CARL had to be satisfied with the accessit of honor, whileIN LOVE takes third place, only one neckline ahead WITHOUT NOISE. IMPRESSIVE ranks fifth, far behind.

Sayings (excerpts) from James Reveley : “I had seen that Diamond Carl didn’t have too much gas in the last bend. The filly was really impressive. She hadn’t taken it hard last time and her trainer was confident.”
