Silasol made just about every yard of the running to win the Total Prix Marcel Boussac at Longchamp.
Carlos Laffon-Parias' filly had only won a maiden but stuck on gamely to hold off Frankie Dettori on Topaze Blance, a stablemate of the winner.
The British raiders had no luck, with Agent Allison handy early but fading late while Purr Along could never get involved after finding herself in an unpromising position from the off, and then being short of room.
Aidan O'Brien's Magical Dream was a non-runner.
William Muir said of Purr Along, who had last been seen pushing subsequent Fillies' Mile winner Certify all the way at Doncaster: "She's come into season between leaving the yard yesterday and now. To confound matters she's also pulled off a shoe in front.
"This can affect horses and Martin (Dwyer) was easy on her. She'll be back for the Guineas."
On the first and second, Laffon-Parias said: "Both fillies had shown decent form in conditions races and shown some ability in the morning but there is very little in the programme book so I had to run them both here. It's a great result for us."
Winning jockey Olivier Peslier said: "She's been a very progressive filly and this was a good step forward from her previous run. The stable is in very good form and the fresh bit of ground was a big help.
"When the other horses came alongside her it made her go on again."
