Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud (Group 1) 1m4f, 4yo+

SILVERWAVE bagged the first Group 1 of his career when springing a minor surprise to win the Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud under an astute ride from jockey Maxime Guyon.

In a messy race, the Pascal Bary-trained Silverwave was always well placed not far off the pace and ultimately ran out a decisive winner at 14-1.

Erupt stayed on strongly to come home in second, while Siljan’s Saga just grabbed third in a blanket finish for the places.

The big disappointment of the race was hot favourite Vazirabad, who had established himself as a star stayer and won his last seven starts but failed to prove as effective over this shorter trip.
