PAUL COLE, the leading British trainer overseas last year, picked up another valuable prize on the continent yesterday when Green Perfume took the Group Two Moet & Chandon-Rennen at Baden-Baden.

The pounds 38,900 purse only returned to Whatcombe thanks to the German stewards, however, as the locally- trained Desidera was first past the post, but disqualified at a subsequent enquiry. Richard Hannon's Queenfisher also paid for her trip, finishing third in the 11-runner contest. Prior to yesterday's race, Green Perfume was a 25-1 chance for next year's 2,000 Guineas.
