VIDEO: Romanised wins Group 1 for Ken Condon and Billy Lee
on 11 August 2019
Last year's Irish 2000 Guineas hero struck in the Prix Jacques le Marois at Deauville

Ken Condon’s Romanised recorded an impressive success in the Prix Jacques le Marois at Deauville on Sunday.

A surprise winner of last year’s Irish 2000 Guineas, there were signs earlier this year he was coming back to something like his best when he was not beaten far in the Lockinge at Newbury and the Queen Anne at Royal Ascot.

Dropped in class last time out for the Minstrel Stakes, the son of Holy Roman Emperor received the perfect confidence boost in that Group 2 at the Curragh to prepare him for this Group 1 assignment.

Settled beautifully for Billy Lee as Vocal Music and Condon’s Success Days put the pace to the mile showpiece, Romanised always looked to be going best.

Coronation Stakes winner Watch Me was behind Romanised for most of the way, but failed to pick up as Lee drew alongside Shaman before quickening in style to win well.

Charlie Appleby’s Line Of Duty flew late to grab third, narrowly behind Shaman.
