Charlie Appleby’s incredible summer of plundering big races in France continued apace as Loxley ran out a ready winner of the Grand Prix de Deauville.

This was a step up to Group Two company, with Sylvester Kirk’s Salouen setting the standard, but his jockey Silvestre de Sousa could get never away from his pursuers on the front end.

William Buick loomed up alongside De Sousa on entering the final furlong and careered away for a two-length triumph, with Master’s Spirit passing Salouen for second close home.

Appleby said: “Loxley is a horse who is going the right way.

“He is still learning on the job and I think he will fulfil his potential next year.

“His two victories at Deauville have taught him a lot. He appreciated this trip. We will regroup and discuss his future.”
