Angel Power recorded a career best when winning the Class 2 0-100 Handicap for fillies over 1m2½f at York's Ebor meeting and she showed she hasn't stopped improving with a smooth success in the Listed Prix de Liancourt over the same trip just 13 days later.
This three-year-old daughter of Lope De Vega was placed at Newmarket on her only start at two before winning her seasonal debut this year in a mile fillies' novice at Chelmsford. She then stepped up in class and ran well to be placed second in mile races at Haydock and Glorious Goodwood, but it was only when she was tested over the additional 2½f that she really showed what she was made of, displaying a brilliant turn of foot to brush aside her rivals at York.
Olivier Peslier was given the call up to partner her at Longchamp in a race that attracted four British contenders from the nine runners. She was given a patient ride by Peslier and it was only when she passed the 400m mark that he began to ask her to quicken and although she needed every yard of the trip she won with a little in hand to pass the post ¾l ahead of her closest rival Extreme Fast.
This progressive filly has a variety of options at home and abroad, so we will let the dust settle before deciding where she goes.
