G3 Prix de Psyche third for Alkandora
Alkandora continued her progressive profile when finishing third on her G3 debut in the Prix de Psyche at Deauville, France, on Saturday, 1 August.
The three-year-old filly, successful for trainer Andre Fabre in the Listed Prix Melisande at Longchamp on her previous outing, was awkward leaving the stalls and raced in sixth of the seven runners under Mickael Barzalona for the majority of the 10-furlong contest.
She quickened strongly down the inside rail passing the furlong-pole and briefly pressed for second half a furlong out before galloping out well to come home four and a quarter lengths behind impressive winner Raabihah.
Lisa-Jane Graffard of Godolphin said: “Alkandora ran another good race and is improving mentally all the time. Hopefully, she can find a Group race over further within her compass in the autumn.”
