RACING: COMMENTARY: Aga unlikely to tackle Derby with Daylami
Monday 12 May 1997
Defeat came in different forms as Ian Balding's Seebe was edged out by Criquette Head's Always Loyal in the Poule d'Essai des Pouliches, but the British colts filled the last three places home behind Daylami in the Poule d'Essai des Poulains.
Michael Stoute's Yalaietanee disputed the lead with Godolphin's Bahamian Bounty, but faded into fourth as Daylami beat Loup Sauvage and Visionary to give the Aga Khan his sixth win in the race. Clive Brittain's Fantastic Fellow was fifth, while Bahamian Bounty finished sixth and last. The 8- 5 winner is entered in the Derby but will stay at events up to 10 furlongs.
Always Loyal, a 7-5 favourite, gave Head her sixth win in the race in holding off Seebe by a head. Mark Prescott's Red Camellia filled third, with Peter Chapple-Hyam's Dances With Dreams fourth and the Godolphin challengers Nightbird and Star Profile fifth and seventh.
