ParisLongchamp opened its doors to 2023 and immediately played host to a 'TDN Rising Star' performance when Pascal Bary trainee Feed The Flame (GB) (Kingman {GB}-Knyazhna {Ire}, by Montjeu {Ire}) unleashed a power-packed display to garner Sunday's Prix de Juigne, a 10 1/2-furlong contest for unraced 3-year-old colts and geldings. The eventual winner bided his time and was positioned sixth of the seven runners through the early stages. Sent forward along the false straight to turn for home in third, the 31-10 chance joined the front rank hard on the steel at the quarter-mile marker and powered clear in impressive fashion once shaken up with 300 metres remaining to easily outclass Cocktail Prince (GB) (Exceed And Excel {Aus}) by 5 1/2 lengths. Kingman's updated catalogue of 30 Rising Stars also includes the multiple elite-level winners Persian King (Ire) and Palace Pier (GB).

"He had worked well as a 2-year-old, but was unable to run because of some minor problems, which is often the case with immature horses," explained trainer Pascal Bary. He came around really well lately and I think he will be a very good horse one day."

Feed The Flame is the sixth of seven foals and fourth scorer out of an unraced half-sister to dual Group 2-placed sire Migwar (Ire) (Sea The Stars {Ire}). The April-foaled bay's second dam Katyusha (Kingmambo), herself a daughter of Listed Rose Bowl S. victrix Crystal Crossing (Ire) (Royal Academy), is an unraced full-sister to G1 St Leger-winning sire Rule Of Law. Feed The Flame's siblings include MGSW G3 Prix Thomas Bryon victor Sacred Life (Fr) (Siyouni {Fr}), MGSP G2 Prix Hocquart third Khagan (Ire) (Le Havre {Ire}) and the unraced 2-year-old colt Gulf Legend (Fr) (Dubawi {Ire}).
