G3 placings for Isle Of May & Ideal Beauty in Prix Sigy
Dropping down to five and a half furlongs for the first time, Isle Of May broke smartly and was immediately sent on into a clear lead by Julien Guillochon.
The Henri-Alex Pantall-trained filly made a bold bid for home over a furlong from home and kept on after being headed by Suesa entering the final half-furlong, going down by three and a half lengths.
Ideal Beauty, representing Andre Fabre, disputed third for the majority of the race and stayed on for Mickael Barzalona to finish a length and a quarter behind Isle Of May.
Lisa-Jane Graffard of Godolphin said: “Both Isle Of May and Ideal Beauty ran very well and we have no excuses with the winner, who looked a class above. They are both useful fillies who deserve to hopefully win a nice race at some point this year.”
