Giant’s Causeway filly could target Oaks after French G3 win

Trainer Alain de Royer-Dupre is heading to the G1 French Oaks with the Aga Khan’s unbeaten filly Dalkala (3f Giant’s Causeway-Daltaya, by Anabaa) after she was a hugely impressive winner at Saint-Cloud on Tuesday.

Jockey Christophe Lemaire bided his time aboard the Giant’s Causeway filly, who hails from the family of Dalakhani and Daylami, before swooping to take the G3 Prix de Cleopatre by four lengths.

“I liked this filly before the race and now I like her even more and I think we’ve found our filly for the G1 Prix de Diane,” de Royer-Dupre told TDN.
