Royal-Oak victory for Vazirabad
Vazirabad retained the Group One Prix Royal-Oak at Saint-Cloud with a smooth victory under Christophe Soumillon.
Vazirabad ran out a smooth winner
Alain de Royer-Dupre's entire was a warm order to repeat his 2015 success and didn't disappoint under a confident ride.
Patiently ridden while Frankie Dettori cut out the early running aboard outsider Justice Belle, Vazirabad scythed through the pack to win with his ears pricked.
Endless Time was second for Godolphin and Charlie Appleby while Arc de Triomphe fourth Siljan's Saga, runner-up 12 months ago, finished fast and late to claim third.
Saeed bin Suroor's Sky Hunter and the only Irish-trained participant, Tony Martin's Quick Jack, both performed creditably.
Soumillon was completing a big-race double having earlier steered the Luca Cumani-trained Loving Things to Group Three success in the Prix De Flore.
John Gosden's Furia Cruzada was third and Roger Varian's Sharja Queen was sixth.
