Sans Equivoque showed a likeable attitude, racing without company in the latter stages, to win the Group 2 Criterium de Maisons-Laffite this afternoon.

With British horses Delectation and Moonlit Show non-runners, a field of seven went to post for this contest run over just under six furlongs.

Nations Alexander broke well but it was Koropick who went on from Stop The Wages and Fas.

Settling down, Stop The Wages led from Koropick and Nations Alexander, with King Of Spades and Fas next, as the field went past half way.

Stop The Wages soon came under pressure and it was Nations Alexander and Boos who went on towards the inside, with Sans Equivoque on the outside, racing on her own.

The British filly was the first to wilt and Sans Equivoque and Thierry Jarnet got up narrowly from Boos in a French one-two, with Nations Alexander third.

Sans Equivoque, a daughter of Stormy River, was completing a hat-trick of victories and races in the same Sun Bloodstock Sarl silks worn by recent Group 1 winner First Defense.
