Sublimis notches another G2 placing in Prix Maurice de Nieuil
Sublimis gained a second straight placing at G2 level when coming home third in the Prix Maurice de Nieuil over a mile and three-quarters at Longchamp, France, on Wednesday, 14 July.
The Andre Fabre-trained son of Shamardal, stepping back up in trip following a half-length second in the 12-furlong G2 Grand Prix de Chantilly, was held up in a clear last of the four runners for most of the race.
He progressed to third with two furlongs left and stayed on after being switched out by Mickael Barzalona soon after, going down by just under a length and three-quarters in total behind Valia.
Lisa-Jane Graffard of Godolphin said: “Sublimis produced another solid performance and ran up to the level of form he has shown all season.”
