Corinthia Knight Conquers Chantilly
The Archie Watson trained Corinthia Knight headed to Chantilly today to compete in the Montenica Listed Stakes over 6.5 furlongs. He was aiming to follow up on 2 wins from 2 runs on U.K. soil this year. The talented Oisin Murphy travelled for the ride.
He bounced from the gates in his usual professional manner and Oisin settled him in 3rd on the rail until the home straight. As the pace quickened, the French jockeys looked to be doing their best to deny Corinthia room. Oisin found daylight by switching to the outside and he showed a fantastic turn of foot to gather the leader in and win the valuable contest under a fantastic ride.
Currently rated 105, he is a very talented horse with a tremendous appetite for the game. He has won 3 races at different distances & tracks this year, with various tactics used. He is a versatile speed machine and there are plenty of options for him going forward.
A huge well done to Archie who is absolutely flying this year.
A huge well done also to his owners who will be looking very much forward to his next destination; the all-weather finals on Good Friday.
Winner # 10 for the year.
