Two British winners have both been supplemented for the Grand Prix de Paris at Longchamp on Wednesday evening.

Hurricane Lane represents Godolphin in the contest, with the hope of landing back-to-back Group 1 successes.


Charlie Appleby’s colt finished a respectable third in the Epsom Derby at the beginning of June, before following up in the Irish equivalent three weeks later.

The son of Frankel reeled in the front-running Lone Eagle to snatch victory in the final strides at the Curragh.

The rapidly improving Alenquer joins him, as the colt makes his first start in Group 1 company following his Royal Ascot success.

William Haggas’s recruit carries some useful form, as he got the better of Derby winner Adayar in the Group 3 Classic Trial back in April.

He claimed a comfortable success in the King Edward VII Stakes last month and confirmed his versatility when landing victory in tough conditions in Berkshire.

This is a much tougher assignment on his occasion, but he could well be in the frame here.

Aidan O’Brien, who has won the last three renewals of this race, sends a trio of runners to Longchamp in hope of landing some black type.

Sir Lamorak is stepped up into top-class company for the first time, The Mediterranean faces Alenquer once again after finishing fourth in the King Edward VII Stakes and Wordsworth comes up against Hurricane Lane for the second time after claiming third in the Irish Derby.
