VIDEO: The Revenant strikes for France at Ascot
on 17 October 2020
Just like Addeybb, the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes winner was going one place better than he did at this fixture last year

The Revenant went one better than 12 months ago with a game display to claim the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes at Ascot on Saturday.

Runner-up to King Of Change in 2019, Francis-Henri Graffard’s mud-loving gelding only made his seasonal debut two weeks ago, when winning the Prix Daniel Wildenstein for a second time.

Given a fine ride by Pierre-Charles Boudot, the 5/1 chance held the persistent challenge of the always-prominent Roseman (28/1) by a head in the Group 1 over the straight mile, sponsored by Qipco.

Palace Pier, the 8/11 favourite, was only third, three and a quarter lengths away, as John Gosden’s dual Group 1 winner was beaten for the first time in six starts. He also lost a shoe in the race.

The winner is a five-year-old by Dubawi and he began his career with trainer Hugo Palmer.
