CERCLE D'OR (IRE) (f, 2, Acclamation {GB}–Fleche d'Or {GB}, by Dubai Destination), who went off as the 4-6 chalk coming back from a Nov. 2 debut fifth at Chelmsford and a second at Kempton last time Nov. 24, was sharply into stride and led from the outset off this third all-weather start. Dominating throughout, she came under pressure when threatened by Harbour Grey (Ire) (Zoffany {Ire}) on the home turn and kept on resolutely for continued urging in the short straight to deny that rival by 3/4 of a length. Produced by an unraced half-sister to G1 Coronation S. heroine Rebecca Sharp (GB) (Machiavellian), the bay is kin to MGSP Listed Ballymacoll Stud Lord Weinstock Memorial S. victress Eastern Belle (GB) (Champs Elysees {GB}) and European highweight Golden Horn (GB) (Cape Cross {Ire}), who annexed the G1 Epsom Derby, G1 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe, G1 Coral-Eclipse and G1 Irish Champion S. for the same John Gosden stable last year. Lifetime Record: 3-1-1-0, £4,711.
