Indonesienne shock in Boussac
Indonesienne swooped late to spring a surprise in the Total Prix Marcel Boussac at Longchamp.
Lesstalk In Paris set out to make all in the hands of Ioritz Mendizabal and was still in front and travelling well at the top of the straight.
Richard Hughes was poised to challenge in behind on British raider Sandiva but when Lesstalk In Paris kicked for home, she found little in response.
Hughes switched out to challenge again in the middle of the track but Flavien Prat was flying down his outside on the Christophe Ferland-trained Indonesienne, who swallowed up Lesstalk In Paris only yards from the post and went on to claim a clear victory.
Charlie Hills' Queen Catrine took third after she too delivered a late flourish while Sandiva could only plug on for seventh.
Ferland was gaining consolation after Chalnetta was disqualfied from first place in Saturday's Prix Royallieu.
He said: "It was disappointing yesterday with Chalnetta, but we are over that now and this is fantastic.
"We took a chance and it has worked. I knew she had great acceleration from her first race and she was able to show it."
Hills was delighted to see his filly make the frame on ground that he thought did not really suit.
He said: "The main thing is that she's shown us she stays a mile which opens up options for next year.
"We will give her a nice break but today's race was run on tacky ground and it turned into a bit of a slog."
Hughes felt Sandiva was thoroughly unsuited by the ground.
He said of Richard Fahey's runner : "The ground was very sticky and it didn't suit my filly at all. That was not her true running."
