Mehdaayih unfit for Mallaret opponents

Horse Racing

John Gosden-trained Mehdaayih ran out of the list for a comfortable championship at the Prix de Malleret, Saint-Cloud.

The filly has been impressive in the Cheshire Oaks at Chester for she was assigned off as a favorite to the Oaks at Epsom; however, she suffered a troubled passage which ended up with her concluding in the seventh place after stablemate Anapurna.

Instead of handling the Ribblesdale at Royal Ascot, Gosden chose Frankel filly to take extra time that led her sending off to France for the Group Two.

Mehdaayih settled at the rear off at a calm pace after facing pressure when Frankie Dettori moved even way closer.

Just in a little while, the horse hit the front while the mount of Christophe Soumillon, Edisa, traveled really well in the game. But, she faltered to pick up once which provided Mehdaayih the opportunity to coast over the line and hit a valuable success.

On an interview, Gosden told Sky Sports Racing that he pursued Plan B since the idea was to sit very handy, but he missed the break and she was back in last.

The filly had to swing wide, but it quickened very well since she got a lot of class.

“I was concerned she was out the back because she was out the back because w don’t quicken like the French do, but it’s a lovely straight here. She quickened up well which is a good weapon in her armoury.”

There would be more victories for the British raiders when Roger Charlton’s Headman managed stepping up to Pattern company without difficulty when dominating the Prix Eugene Adam.

The horse was last seen succeeding the London Gold Cup at Newbury and was due to compete at Royal Ascot but was then taken out of the Hampton Court Stakes because of the ground.

Advancing to Group Two company, he was considered to be a remarkable winner that served Jason Watson well during the early days of his connection with Charlton.

With this, Watson mentioned that he has a very nice horse. He then ran Flat at the beginning of the year, but with every match, he just kept on improving.

For them, conditions weren’t ideal but the bet crept into the race and so it would not be easy.

“These are the horses you want to ride, so I must thank Mr Charlton for putting me up in these big races. It’s my first win here my and my first day in France.”

Charlie Appleby was seen earlier hitting the target at Listed level because Art Du Val conquered the Prix de Saint-Patrick for three-quarters of length care of James Doyle.
