Flop Shot showed an impressive turn of foot to claim the Group Three Prix De Guiche at Chantilly.
Seven three year-olds took part in this nine-furlong race.
From the gates it was Insandi who went on reluctantly from Makmour and Syrtis to the outside.
Makmour pressed on from Syrtis, as Insandi was dropped back against the rails.
Turning into the home straight, Makmour led by 1 ½ lengths from the white-faced Syrtis, with Insandi and Flop Shot.
Syrtis easily went past Makmour who tamely dropped away, but Flop Shot powered past his stable mate and went clear, easing down to win by three lengths, with Insandi third, in an Andre Fabre one-two.
