Alain'de Royer-Dupre

Last year’s Prix’de l’Arc’de Triomphe runner-up Shareta lost out by a nose to Solemia in the Group Two Prix Corrida at Saint-Cloud on Monday.

The extended 10-furlong event is a favourite of trainer Alain’de Royer-Dupre and he collected it last year with Sarafina before she went on to take the Grand Prix’de Saint-Cloud.

Solemia’s pacemaker Tempura set a fierce gallop, with Shareta sitting just a handful of runners from the front, but she hit trouble and conceded ground to the Carlos Laffon-Parias-trained winner

Shareta and Christophe Lemaire recovered but did not have enough time to thwart the Oliver Pestlier-ridden Solemia, who had hit traffic problems herself on her previous start at Longchamp.
