Shadwell Rockfel Stakes (Group 2) 7fm, 2yo fillies

THE provincial French racecourse La Teste de Buch has probably never before been the site of a prep race for the Rockfel but it proved an ideal warm-up venue for unheralded Gallic raider Spain Burg, who defeated Frankel filly Fair Eva in a shock result at Newmarket.

A first British winner for trainer Xavier Thomas-Demeaulte, Spain Burg was delivered with a withering late run by Frankie Dettori and swept by the always-prominent Fair Eva, the 4-9 favourite who finished over a length down in second.
