Roly Poly bags Rothschild
Roly Poly once again showed her toughness as she ran out a game winner of the Prix Rothschild at Deauville.
Aidan O'Brien's filly has come out of the shadow of her stablemate Winter, who beat her in both the Irish 1,000 Guineas and the Coronation Stakes, by first winning the Group One Falmouth Stakes at Newmarket and now doubling up in France.
Ryan Moore had Roly Poly well positioned from the outset as Godolphin's Usherette held a narrow lead on the near-side rail in a bunched field, with last year's winning Qemah bringing up the rear.
Out of trouble, Moore kicked on with Roly Poly over a furlong out and was all out to hold Via Ravenna, with Siyoushake a close third.
Qemah stayed on late but could not trouble the first three, while British raiders Persuasive and Realtra did not get in a blow.
