Absent since finishing third in a seven-furlong newcomers event at Saint-Cloud in June, Godolphin’s Epic Hero (Fr) (Siyouni {Ire}) exploded onto the scene at Chantilly on Tuesday as he created a deep impression in the Prix du Belvedere over a mile on the Polytrack. Settled in the middle of the pack early by Mickael Barzalona, the 53-10 chance cruised to the fore with just under 300 metres remaining and powered clear for an emphatic eight-length success from the Italian black-type performer Eagleway (Fr) (Sakhee’s Secret {GB}), with the winner’s favoured stablemate Nordic Fire (GB) (Dream Ahead) a further 1 1/4 lengths back in third. The dam Grace Lady (Fr) (Muhtathir {GB}) was a smart performer, winning the G2 Prix Corrida before producing as her first foal this colt’s stablemate Alhadab (Fr) (Camelot {GB}) who was second in last year’s G3 Prix Noailles and third in the G2 Prix Greffulhe. Her yearling filly is a full-sister to the latter.
