Manduro’s Iresine Best In Strong Ganay

Sunday’s G1 Prix Ganay was as strong as any in recent times and there was no fluke about the victory of Bertrand Milliere’s Iresine (Fr) (Manduro {Ger}–Inanga {GB}, by Oasis Dream {GB}), who provided trainer Jean-Pierre Gauvain and jockey Marie Velon with a once-in-a-lifetime moment at ParisLongchamp. Carrying a penalty for his G1 Prix Royal Oak success when an eye-catching second to Simca Mille (Ire) (Tamayuz {GB}) in the G2 Prix d’Harcourt here three weeks previously, the 4-1 shot was anchored in last early with the pace generous. Delivered with perfect timing down the outer to overhaul the battling duo Simca Mille and Bay Bridge (GB) (New Bay {GB}) inside the final 100 metres, the dark bay who was the joint-oldest in the line-up at six asserted to reverse the d’Harcourt form by 1 1/4 lengths, as Bay Bridge fared best of the seasonal debutantes a head away in third. The returning G1 Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe runner-up Vadeni (Fr) (Churchill {Ire}) was fourth, 1 1/2 lengths behind.
