Spirit of Brittany was entrusted with the weight of favouritism in this debutantes’ heat and fully justified that faith with a dominant display to earn ‘TDN Rising Star’ status at first asking. Sharply into stride to seize immediate control, the 14-5 chalk was in cruise mode throughout and required negligible urging inside the final quarter-mile to easily account for Kiwi Kiss (Fr) (Dabirsim {Fr}) by an impressive 2 1/2 lengths, becoming Jean-Claude Rouget’s first juvenile winner of the year. She is the third foal and first scorer produced by Ysandre (GB) (Zamindar), an unraced half-sister to five black-type winners including G1 Lockinge S.-winning sire Keltos (Fr) (Kendor {Fr}), MG1SP G2 Prix du Muguet victor Krataios (Fr) (Sabrehill) and G1 Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud third and GSW sire Loxias (Fr) (Saumarez {GB}). Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, €13,500.
