Christophe Soumillon: Secured victory aboard Lone Ranger

The British raiders failed to land a blow in the Prix du Carrousel at Deauville as Christophe Soumillon took the spoils aboard Lone Ranger.

John Gosden and Mark Johnston had already enjoyed varying degrees of success on the card in France prior to the Listed contest over a trip just shy of one mile seven.

However, neither Thimaar nor Gulf Of Naples were able to play a leading role in a race which went to Lone Ranger, trained by Alain de Royer-Dupre.

The four year-old was held-up in the rear in the early stages before being produced by Soumillon in the final stages of the contest and the pair scored a narrow success from Flamingo Fantasy and Inside Man who had beaten the winner over two miles in June.

Thimaar fared best of the two British trained runners in a close-up fifth under Paul Hanagan with Gulf Of Naples back in seventh.
