Forceful Pao Alto looks decidedly smart

THERE should be no doubt as to which of the three-year-old Group 3s at Longchamp last Thursday week was the stronger: Pao Alto looked a decidedly smart performer in landing the Prix la Force in a time nearly 2.0s quicker than Magic Attitude did in winning the Prix Vanteaux for fillies, and with late splits that were nearly as quick into the bargain.
