British raider Hey Gaman claimed a decisive success in the Prix du Palais-Royal at ParisLongchamp.

James Tate’s charge came withing a neck of winning the French 2000 Guineas 12 months ago – and also performed with credit in the French Derby, the Prix Jean Prat and Prix Daniel Wildenstein in subsequent cross-Channel raids last season.

Having kicked off his four-year-old campaign with an impressive Listed success at Leicester, the New Approach colt stepped up to Group Three level for his latest French assignment – and after being ridden prominently by PJ McDonald, quickened up to lead halfway up the home straight

Freddy Head’s Group One-winning filly Polydream – victorious in this race 12 months ago – covered the move, and briefly looked set to make a real race of it in the final furlong after getting a dream run up the rail.

However, her effort petered out close home, and Hey Gaman was well on top at the line.

Polydream was beaten to the runner-up spot by King Malpic.

Tate said: “I’m absolutely thrilled. I thought he looked great before the race – he got a lovely lead into it and he won very well. I’m very impressed with him.

“It’s fantastic to win a Group race with him, and we’ll be looking at a couple of Group Twos for him now – possibly the Hungerford Stakes at Newbury and the Lennox at Goodwood.

“After that, I think we’d look at coming back here for the Prix de la Foret in October because he obviously likes the track.”
