Ruler Of The World Filly Impresses On Trip To France

The Archie Watson-trained Mrs Dukesbury (2f Ruler Of The World - Sunshinesonleith, by Danehill Dancer) made a successful trip to France to gain her maiden win at Pornichet on Thursday.

Placed last time out over the same distance of a mile, she was sent off favourite under Hollie Doyle and soon led. Shaken up when two lengths clear as they approached the two furlong marker, she stayed on well to extend her advantage to four and a half lengths on the line.

Owned by WJA Nash and partner, Mrs Dukesbury was bred in France by SC Ecurie Jema and is the first foal out of a half-sister to black-type performer Queen Jock. She is bred on a similar cross to Ruler of The World’s first crop poster girl, dual Group 1 winner Iridessa.
