The Gp3 Paddy Power Stakes over 12 furlongs at Leopardstown was won by Camorra  (4g Zoffany - Mauralakana, by Muhtathir). Sadly, Innisfree broke down during the running of this race.

The Portland Handicap over 5½ furlongs at Doncaster is one of the major Sprint Handicaps in England.

This year's edition was won Hurricane Ivor  (4g  Ivawood - Quickstep Queen, by Royal Applause) who also was the topweight.

Thanks GA, as usual.  Thumbs Up

Agree the place-getters are top class, however still find it hard to accept just four going around in a Million Euro Group 1.  Given the time presume it was either a track with plenty of give or a very tactical affair.

I have said it before & I'll say it again. "Everyone underestimates Japanese form". Wet tracks might bring them unstuck but today Longchamp was rated Good. I thought I was being clever getting $7 but if I had been patient, I could have got nearly double that! Stupid me.

Deep Bond wins Prix Foy!

Five Group Ones were held today. 4 at the Curragh & 1 at Longchamp.

The Gp1 Irish St Leger over 14 furlongs at the Curragh was won by Sonnyboyliston  (4g  Power - Miss Macnamara, by Dylan Thomas) from Twilight Payment & Baron Samedi. All three placegetters were impressive. Twilight Payment had to take the field up to the tearaway leader & fought on bravely. Baron Samedi came from further back & hit the line strongly. Sonnyboyliston was coming off a victory in the Ebor Handicap last month & continued his improvement finishing powerfully.

The Gp1 Flying Five Stakes over 5 furlongs at the Curragh was won by Romantic Proposal  (5m  Raven's Pass - Playwithmyheart, by Diktat) defeating A Case Of You & Glass Slippers. The winner is out of a half sister to Toylsome who won the Gp1 Prix de la Foret at 100/1 in 2007.

The Gp1 Moyglare Stud Stakes for 2yo fillies over 7 furlongs at the Curragh was won by Discoveries  (2f  Mastercraftsman - Alpha Lupi, by Rahy) defeating Agartha & Sunset Shiraz. Discoveries is a full sister to the champion filly Alpha Centauri & a half sister to Gp1 winner Alpha Star. Her second dam East Of The Moon won 3 Group Ones & the third dam was another champion, Miesque, who was also the mother of Kingmambo. This has been an amazing damline for the Niarchos family.

The Gp1 National Stakes for 2yos over 7 furlongs at the Curragh was won by Native Trail  (2c  Oasis Dream - Needleleaf, by Observatory) who upset the odds on favourite, Point Lonsdale, by 3½ lengths with Ebro River third. Native Trail is out of a full sister to Gp1 Sptint Cup winner African Rose. These were his damline details when he won the Gp2 Superlative Stakes in July.

The Gp2 Blandford Stakes for fillies & mares over 10 furlongs at the Curragh saw another surprise when Love was caught on the line by La Petite Coco  (3f  Ruler Of The World - La Petite Virginia, by Konigstiger).

The Gp1 Prix Vermeille for fillies & mares over 12 furlongs at Longchamp was won by Teona  (3f  Sea The Stars - Ambivalent, by Authorized) who defeated the 1/5 favourite Snowfall by 1½ lengths with La Joconde third. Teona is beautifully bred. Her mother won the Gp1 Pretty Polly Stakes & Gp2 Middleton Stakes.

The Gp2 Prix Niel for 3yos over 12 furlongs at Longchamp resulted in a nose win to Bubble Gift  (3c  Nathaniel - Bubble Back, by Grand Lodge).

The Gp2 Prix Foy over 12 furlongs at Longchamp was won by the Japanese horse Deep Bond  (4h  Kizuna - Zephyranthes, by King Halo) who defeated Broome by 1½ lengths. At his previous start Deep Bond ran 2nd in the G1 Tenno Sho (Spring) & before that won the G2 Hanshin Daishoten by 5 lengths.

The Gp3 Prix du Petit Couvert over 5 furlongs at Longchamp was won by 3½ lengths by Berneuil  (4g  Lope De Vega - Derivatives, by Dansili).

The Gp3 Prix du Pin over 7 furlongs at Longchamp was won by Sagamiyra  (4m  Sea The Moon - Saghaniya, by Rock Of Gibraltar). At her previous start she was runner-up to Mother Earth in the Gp1 Prix Rothschild.
