DUHAIL (IRE) (c, 3, Lope de Vega {Ire}–Single {Fr} {GSP-Fr}, by Singspiel {Ire}), sent off the 29-10 second favourite, soon slotted into second from his wide draw. Taking command with 300 metres remaining, the chestnut stayed on powerfully to account for Abolish (GB) (Sepoy {Aus}) by seven lengths. The dam, who was runner-up in the G3 Prix d’Aumale as a juvenile, is a Wertheimer-bred half-sister to Ballydoyle’s G3 Killavullan S. winner Kenya (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) and Zantenda (GB) (Zamindar), who took the Prix d’Aumale before running third in the G1 Prix Marcel Boussac. Also from the family of the sire Diableneyev (Nureyev)), she has a yearling colt by Zoffany (Ire) to follow. Sales history: €180,000 Ylg ’17 ARQAUG; €300,000 2yo ’18 ARQMAY. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, €12,500. Video, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.
