Racing: Deposit is a loss for Dettori

Click to follow
LANFRANCO DETTORI'S trip to Longchamp yesterday proved fruitless when he finished last of six in the Group Three Prix la Force on Full Deposit.

The John Gosden-trained colt found little when asked for his effort two furlongs from home and was eventually beaten just under seven lengths by the winner, Percutant. A 22-10 shot trained by David Smaga and ridden by Guy Guignard, Percutant beat the favourite, Dare And Go, by a head. The first two home are set to meet again in the Prix du Jockey-Club.

Vintage Crop, last year's Melbourne Cup winner, made a winning reappearance in a Listed race at Leopardstown last night. Dermot Weld's seven-year- old, a 7-4 joint-favourite, won by five lengths.
