Test

French raider Fintry shows class in Atalanta

A ninety day absence had no affect on French raider Fintry as she had too much class for her rivals in the Group 3 Atalanta Stakes at Sandown. Andre Fabre’s filly had been beaten just once in four starts before today and despite carrying a 7lb penalty for a Group 2 victory in her native land, was just too good in the 1 mile contest.

 

The 3yo was found to have a cough after that victory at Chantilly but having tracked the front running Audacia throughout, eased clear to record a hard held 1 1/4 length victory from the fast finishing Odeliz, with Water Hole back in third.

 

Winning jockey Maxime Guyon said: “That was very simple. She won a Group Two last time, so today she won again. When she got in front she stopped a little bit. She’s a very good filly.”

 

Lisa Jane Graffard, Godolphin’s French representative, said: “Absolutely delighted. We just wanted to see the filly have a good comeback.

 

“She’d been off the track three months, but we knew she had the quality she showed us today so hopefully she can go for a big one at the end of the season.

 

“We came here because there were no suitable races on France and she was already a Group Two winner there and the timing of this race was right.

 

“It has to be discussed but I think the Sun Chariot would be the logical step.”
