Irish/World Racing Round-Up - 14/01/2019

Another weekend gone, and another relatively quiet weekend internationally, with the pick of the action from both days coming from Chantilly in France.

On Saturday, there were winners for both Maxime Guyon and Pierre-Charles Boudot on the Polytrack. Maxime rode the favourite Cleostorm to victory in the claimer - the Prix de la Porte des Marchands, whilst Pierre got Fresco home by a short-head in the Prix de Presles Handicap almost an hour later.

In the far-East, Silvestre de Sousa recorded a hat-trick of wins at Sha Tin for three different trainers on Saturday evening.

The pick of his wins was the third and final leg, where the Aussie-bred Elusive State - held up early on, sprung to life on the outside and won by a length for A T Millard.

De Sousa is expected back in Britain in the near feature for the build-up towards the All-weather finals at Lingfield.

Back in France, Pierre-Charles Boudot was at it again twenty-four hours later, this time landing a claimer himself, aboard 12/5 favourite Nimr - who has raced in England in the past, in the Prix du Carrefour des Grandes Ventes.

There was also a winner for Christophe Soumillon in the opener in the Prix Abdos - his first since returning home after opening his Meydan account for the season earlier in the month.

Speaking of the Middle-East, Skygazer landed their big race of the weekend - the Madinat Zayed Handicap for Ronan Whelan.

Elsewhere, there was Grade Two action at Kyoto, Japan, when Glory Vase - the 17/10 favourite Glory Vase landed the spoils for trainer Tomohito Ozeki, and jockey Mirco Demuro.
