Space Blues strikes in Prix Maurice de Gheest for Appleby and Buick to land maiden Group 1
9th August 2020

SPACE Blues rocketed home to upset home favourite Earthlight in the Group 1 Prix Maurice de Gheest at Deauville.

Charlie Appleby's four-year-old sat in the rear throughout and moved through the field with a devastating turn of foot under a cool Will Buick.

Fellow British raider Hello Youmzain stuck on for second, with Aidan O'Brien's Lope Y Hernandez third.

Odds-on favourite Earthlight could only manage fourth with Clive Cox's Golden Horde weakening late into fifth after cutting out much of the running with his usual gusto.

After winning the Lennox Stakes at Glorious Goodwood, Space Blues showed no signs of the recent outing with a taking performance.

And the well-travelled Godolphin colt could head back to France for the Prix de la Foret next, with Paddy power going 5-1 for the seven furlong Group 1.
