Godolphin’s Listed Bosra Sham Fillies’ S. victrix Romantic Style (Ire) (Night Of Thunder {Ire}–Sweet Dream {Fr}, by Dream Ahead) made her seasonal return a successful one and downed ‘TDN Rising StarRamatuelle (Justify) to become connections’ first winner, in a thrilling renewal, of Deauville’s G3 Prix Imprudence.

The 37-10 third favourite, who shed maiden status at Great Yarmouth in September, was positioned second in the far-side group and raced in an overall fifth through halfway in this seven-furlong distaffers’ Guineas trial. Looming large out wide with 300 metres remaining, the May 5 G1 1000 Guineas entry quickened to the fore entering the final furlong and kept on strongly under stern urging to withstand the late rally of Ramatuelle by a half-length for a career high. Last term’s G3 Prix Miesque victrix and long-time leader Tamfana (Ger) (Soldier Hollow {GB}) provided solidity to the form and finished another half-length adrift in third.

Pedigree Notes
Romantic Style is the second foal and black-type scorer out of G3 Prix Miesque winner Sweety Dream (Fr) (Dream Ahead), herself a daughter of G3 Prix Cleopatre third Excellent Girl (GB) (Exceed And Excel {Aus}). Descendants of Excellent Girl, who is a half-sister to G3 R A Lee S. victor Fastnet Tempest (Ire) (Fastnet Rock {Aus}), include the stakes-winning Easter (Fr) (Exosphere {Aus}), Listed Criterium de Lyon third Roccia Nera (Fr) (Dream Ahead) and stakes-winning G3 Topkapi Trophy third Peekaboo (Ire) (Toronado {Ire}). The March-foaled chestnut is kin to Listed Brigids Pastures victrix Are We Dreaming (Ire) (Kendargent {Fr}), a 2-year-old filly by Earthlight (Ire) and a yearling colt by Space Blues (Ire).
