Planteur gets the job doneHeadlines
Planteur

Group One winner Planteur geared up for a possible Dubai World Cup challenge with a relatively hard-fought neck victory in Listed company at Lingfield.

Winner of the Prix Ganay back in 2011 when trained in France, Planteur is now with Marco Botti and was sent off the 1-2 favourite for the Blue Square Bet Winter Derby Trial Stakes.

Adam Kirby had the six-year-old, who finished third in last year's World Cup on his first start for Botti, smartly out of the stalls and made every yard of the running in the 10-furlong heat.

Planteur looked to be travelling easily enough through the race, but Kirby had to get to work in the final two furlongs, giving the horse a couple of cracks with the whip.

Miblish burst through to lay down his late challenge and while it was an admirable effort, Planteur was always holding him, prevailing by a neck at the line. Tepmokea kept on for third, a further two and a quarter lengths away.

William Twiston-Davies bagged his first Listed success as he steered Ladies Are Forever to glory in the bluesquare.com Cleves Stakes.

Twiston-Davies started his career riding over jumps as an amateur for his trainer father Nigel, and his brother Sam is among the top rank in the National Hunt sphere.

However, the youngest Twiston-Davies switched his attention to the level and teaming up with Geoff Oldroyd's charge, he landed the biggest win of his career to date.

Fratellino made a bold bid from the front, but Twiston-Davies pushed Ladies Are Forever ahead over a furlong out and she kept responding to pressure to win by a length.

Farmleigh House claimed second with Fratellino clinging on to third, a further three-quarters of a length adrift.
