Dylan Thomas had another promising winner in France on Monday when the Mikel Delzangles-trained Pretty Please (3f Dylan Thomas-Plante Rare, by Giant’s Causeway) made an impressive debut.
The Wildenstein family home-bred is a three-parts sister to last season’s G1 Prix Ganay winner Planteur (5h Danehill Dancer-Plante Rare, by Giant’s Causeway) and looks to have inherited the family talent after this cosy success in a Chantilly conditions’ event.
The filly is blind in her left eye but has overcome that problem. “This is a very nice filly, with no complications,” Delzangles told Jour de Galop. “She goes very well and I like her a lot.”
Jockey Christophe Soumillon added: “This is a good filly. It is not easy for her because
she is blind and her behaviour during the race is interesting but she’s a super filly.”
Pretty Please was scoring a day after Dylan Thomas had a couple of impressive winners in the Aidan O’Brien-trained Athens (3c Dylan Thomas-Rafina, by Mr Prospector), who landed a Navan conditions event, and the Wildenstein family’s Best Of All (3f Dylan Thomas-Bright Sky, by Wolfhound), who scored at Longchamp.
