Verde claims Chantilly prize

Tue, 11 September 2012

Mick Channon's Cay Verde ran out an easy winner of the Group Three Prix d'Arenberg at Chantilly.

Martin Harley had an armchair ride on the son of Bahamian Bounty, who quickened clear in the final furlong to win by four and a half lengths from another British raider, Baileys Jubilee.

Mark Johnston's filly was in turn four lengths ahead of the third home, Aksil, while Roger Varian's Morawij was a non-runner.

There was no luck for the cross-Channel challengers in the Prix d'Aumale, as Peace Burg just touched off Single in the other Group Three race on the card.

Indigo Lady, trained in Newmarket by Peter Chapple-Hyam, made a bold bid to make all the running in the mile test, but had to settle for third spot.

The finish was fought out by two unbeaten fillies, with Peace Burg getting the nod under Ioritz Mendizabal.

Ralph Beckett's Redressthebalance never made an impact, while the Sir Mark Prescott-trained Savanna La Mar did not take her chance.
