Anapurna benefited by Frankie Dettori from another nice trip to obtain a Group One success of the season in the Prix de Royallieu in ParisLongchamp.
Even the John Gosden-trained filly showed the courage and determination which had witnessed her triumph in the Oaks at Epsom but she had just had one outing because victory, when defeated at the Prix Vermeille won by her stablemate Star Catcher.
Dettori was about the winner that afternoon, but he was reunited with Anapurna now and bounced out into an early lead.
