Cracksman has made a brilliant return to win the Group One Prix Ganay at ParisLongchamp.

Having his first start since taking out the Champion Stakes in October, Cracksman blew the opposition away in the final furlong (200m) with a devastating turn of foot.

Frankie Dettori had the John Gosden-trained Frankel colt in the box seat behind leader Wren’s Day, the pacemaker for his Andre Fabre-trained stablemate Cloth Of Stars, in the early stages.

Dettori edged the 1-2 favourite out to make his challenge soon after entering the straight and Cracksman just needed a few strides to hit top gear.

He soon pulled several lengths clear and romped home from Wren’s Day.

“He’s a stronger horse this year and is still growing. I’m very impressed with him,” Gosden said.

“He was very good during the race and very relaxed afterwards, which was great to see.

“He’s become a stronger, wiser horse this year and conserves his energy better. He is much cooler and Frankie rides him beautifully.”

With stablemate, Prix de l’Arc winner Enable, due to reappear in the Coronation Cup at Epsom, the long-term aim is for the pair to meet in this year’s Arc.

Before that Gosden is pointing towards Royal Ascot for Cracksman after the Tattersalls Gold Cup at the Curragh.

“The horse has put up a good performance and the dream is to come back to this every elegant grandstand, come back with Enable, too, and run them both together,” Gosden said.

“Mr Oppenheimer (Cracksman’s owner) is talking about Ascot and the Prince of Wales’s. If it’s genuine good to firm, there’s no reason we don’t go there.

“You’ve got the Tattersalls Gold Cup and the Prince of Wales’s and they are beautifully spaced.”
