Relishing the step up to a mile and a half for the first time, the Wertheimers’ blueblood Aventure (Ire) (Sea The Stars {Ire}–Balladeuse {Fr}, by Singspiel {Ire}) turned Sunday’s G3 Prix de Royaumont at Chantilly into a procession to book her ticket to the G1 Prix de Diane. Held up towards the rear early by Maxime Guyon, the Christophe Ferland-trained homebred took off when asked in the straight and after surging to the front 300 metres out hit the line with seven lengths to spare over Vigatata (Fr) (Sea the Moon {Ger}) in a time over a second and a half faster than the older horses recorded in the G2 Grand Prix de Chantilly.

“She had run a good race on her seasonal debut and had been working brilliantly since,” Ferland said of the half-sister to the G1 Prix Vermeille heroine and G1 Prix de Diane runner-up Left Hand (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}), who had been narrowly denied a successful reintroduction by Gala Real (Fr) (Wootton Bassett {GB}) in the Listed Prix de la Seine at ParisLongchamp last month. “We had decided to run this race first, as a security, and see from there if we could try the Prix de Diane. She was most impressive, no doubt. There was good rhythm in the race, she closed on the bridle and when Maxime switched her out she was flying. She is not very tall, but she has a real kick and a great action. She will tell us how she is and I’ll then talk with the owners and Pierre Yves Bureau to reach a decision.”
