Raabihah Supreme in Prix de Pomone Triumph

Shadwell's 4-year-old distaffer Raabihah (Sea the Stars {Ire}), unsuccessful in five outings since annexing last term's G3 Prix de Psyche at Deauville, rebounded off three second-place efforts this year and produced a telling burst at the end of Sunday's G2 Darley Prix de Pomone to register an impressive score upon her return to the Normandy venue. The contest was delayed by an excessive hold in the gates while a replacement battery was installed a failed break and the homebred chestnut was positioned in a stalking fourth for the most part....

Shadwell's 180,000gns Tattersalls October Book 1 graduate Ehraz (GB) (Showcasing {GB}) encountered a race-fit Noble Truth (Fr) (Kingman {GB}) when running on for a two-length second in his July 9 debut tackling seven furlongs at Newmarket. Justifying odds-on favouritism in Friday's renowned six-furlong Crocker Bulteel Maiden at Ascot, the flamboyant chestnut left 10 rivals floundering in his wake and powered to 'TDN Rising Stardom' by daylight.

Hampton Court Compensation For Frankel's Mohaafeth

Denied a tilt at the G1 Epsom Derby due to the eve-of-race downpour, Shadwell's Mohaafeth (Ire) (Frankel {GB}) had luck on his side on Thursday and after the overnight thunderstorm had bypassed Ascot duly showed his wares in the G3 Hampton Court S.

Anchored in last early, the 2-1 second favourite who had won over the same course and distance in a handicap at the Craven meeting Apr. 14 cruised to the front passing two out and was not asked a single question from there as he coasted to a five-length success from the 4-5 market-leader Secret Protector (War Front). "He has clearly...
