Awtaad's Anmaat Wins Dollar War

Sent off the 5-2 favourite for Saturday's G2 Qatar Prix Dollar at ParisLongchamp, Shadwell's Anmaat (Ire) (Awtaad {Ire}) justified that confidence to prevail in a battle with Junko (GB) (Intello {Ger}) in the 10-furlong contest. Brought along steadily by Owen Burrows last term and this, the 4-year-old had sprung to prominence last time when taking Haydock's G3 Rose of Lancaster S. by four lengths Aug. 6 and after taking cover in mid-pack looked the winner in early straight with Jim Crowley motionless. Sent to the front a furlong out, the bay had Junko immediately on his case and while it looked briefly as if that Wertheimer representative had the momentum it was Anmaat who had his head down where it mattered. A head was the winning margin, with four lengths back to TDN Rising Star West Wind Blows (Ire) (Teofilo {Ire}) in third.
