Verdict

A sweeping victory for IMMORTAL VERSE and a 1-2 for France as Robert Collet's filly stormed around the outside of the field to go from last to first in the space of 50 yards. They went a fairly strong gallop in sticky ground and this meant the race panned out perfectly for the winner who was given a very patient ride by Gerald Mosse. The field really bunched up at the two furlong pole as the frontrunner Claiomh Solais drifted back, and Together, Joviality, Barefoot Lady and I Love Me all made their challenges, but the action was on the outside as Immortal Verse made her move. The winner is very highly thought-of and it will be interesting to see where she heads to next, with the Falmouth Stakes at Newmarket an obvious contender. Nova Hawk ran very well in second spot, especially as she didn't get a clear run through. She was one place ahead of the winner turning for home but her jockey tried to make a challenge between runners. In hindsight that wasn't a great move and the pair found their path blocked partly by I Love Me and then Together. Once she had muscled her way through she ran on well but the winner had gone and the race was over. She's very consistent and seemed to really appreciate the solid tempo and a Group One win before the end of the year would be no surprise at all. Third home was Barefoot Lady who started brightly and was never too far off the pace. She made her challenge two furlongs out but was just a bit one-paced compared to the French fillies. To her credit she battled on well, reversing Musidora form with Joviality, and remains a credit to connections. Fourth was I Love Me who ran a career best and seemed to get the mile trip ok, just ahead of Together who was squeezed up when trying to make an effort. She had every chance though and was just found wanting once again; she's very consistent though and is a game little filly. Joviality's run flattened out in the final 100 yards having, like many, held every chance whilst Memory didn't run too badly either. She was held up off the pace having consented to jump off with her rivals and connections will have been pleased with this, if perhaps not delighted. The disappointment of the race was Theyskens' Theory. She was prominent after an alert start, and was in a good position to strike turning in, but she failed to pick up and seemed to get intimidated when swamped by rivals at the two furlong pole. She may have raced too keenly early on but this wasn't an improvement on her taking York reappearance.
