Astronomer Royal standout, Sir Patrick Moore (above), might not have played the starring role in his tilt at stakes level, but the nifty 2YO did finish a classy second in the Listed Prix Roland de Chambure over 1400m at Longchamp on Saturday.
Trained by Harry Dunlop, the aptly monikered, Sir Patrick Moore (named after Britain’s most famous astronomer), won his first two outings comfortably before stepping out at Longchamp.
Race reports are a little sketchy (my schoolboy French has let me down again), but it was evidently a tip top performance from Astronomer Royal’s first runner.
With only three runners at this stage, Astronomer Royal has also produced the multiple winner Madiba and the Chantilly placed Abbreviator.
