Auenperle ran out a surprise winner of the Group Three Prix Perth at Saint-Cloud.

Seven went to post for this one mile contest.

Wootton went on from Graphite through the early stages, with Auenperle to the inside in third.

In the home straight, the race turned into a sprint and it was Auenperle and Ioritz Mendizabal who showed the best turn of foot to draw clear.

Late on, the Godolphin pair of Graphite and Wootton began to close him down, but they were too late, with the latter just claiming second.
