Cool Dettori triumphs on Treve
Treve came from a tough position to land an impressive victory in the Prix Vermeille at Longchamp under Frankie Dettori.
The Italian gave her a confident ride, but she had plenty do in the straight after Tom Queally had set sail for home on the Lady Cecil-trained Wild Coco at the top of the straight.
However, Dettori always seemed confident he had matters in hand and weaved his way through on Criquette Head-Maarek's filly (returned the 11/10 favourite with British bookmakers) to head Wild Coco in the last half a furlong and pull clear. Tasaday was third.
Aidan O'Brien's Venus De Milo was quickly out of the gates, accompanied by Orion Love, with Wild Coco soon taking up the main role in front.
Lady Cecil's filly took a few lengths out of the field on the turn for home but Treve looked special as she swept past a furlong out to score.
She was giving Dettori his first Group One winner since his return from suspension earlier this year for a failed dope test and thereby opened his account at the top level since being appointed retained jockey for Treve's owner Sheikh Joaan Al Thani.
The winner was immediately promoted to favouritism for the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe at 9/2 with Sky Bet, but will need to be supplemented into the line-up.
Dettori said: "It's brilliant. She's the first decent horse I've ridden for a while.
"The Arc will be a different type of race, so I just hope I'm drawn on the fence so I can get some cover.
"It was always the plan to ride her like that as I knew she had a great turn of foot."
