Royal Philosopher, making his second trip to France, proved best of the British quartet at Evry yesterday by running out a game winner of the Listed one-mile Prix Lovelace.

Under a typically polished ride from Olivier Peslier, the John Hills- trained runner made most and, although tiring towards the finish, he had enough in reserve to repel local hope Super Gascon. The Pari-Mutuel paid a win dividend of 5.3-1.
