Channon runner beaten in France

Sun, 21 October 2012

Mick Channon's Luhaif could finish only fifth in the Prix de Conde at Longchamp.

Jockey Sam Hitchcott was keen to make the running in the Group Three over nine furlongs, but he was soon in trouble once the pace quickened along the home straight.

Morandi, trained by Jean-Claude Rouget, travelled smoothly in Luhaif's slipstream and could not have won with any more authority when sent on his way by Gregory Benoist.
