Richard Fahey's Ribchester brilliantly claimed victory in the Prix Jacques le Marois at Deauville.William Buick guided Ribchester to a deserved top-class success.

Buick said: "It's a great thrill to win one of the most prestigious races in France and it shows that he might have been unlucky in the Sussex, when I didn't ride him.
