British-trained 4yo Cracksman (Frankel) started his season in great style on Sunday at ParisLongchamp by winning the Prix Ganay (Gr1), the first Gr1 race of the season in Europe, by no less than 4 lengths over Godolphin's. Wren’s Day (Medaglia d’Oro) and the 2017 edition winner Cloth of Stars (Sea the Stars).

Trained in Newmarket by John Gosden for owner Anthony Oppenheimer, with champion jockey and ParisLongchamp greatest fan Frankie Dettori, Cracksman is more than ever the favorite for the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe (Gr1), run over the same track in 160 days.
