Laurens was made to work hard for the second Group One win of her career in The Gurkha Coolmore Prix Saint-Alary at ParisLongchamp.

Sent off the odds-on favourite on the back of her excellent second in the 1000 Guineas at Newmarket, it took every yard of the 10 furlongs to enable Laurens to come out on top.

PJ McDonald attempted to make all on the Karl Burke-trained filly, but she looked a sitting duck a furlong out as Andre Fabre’s Flowrider and the Freddy Head-trained With You threw down their challenges.

It was to Laurens’ credit, though, that she stuck her neck out and battled all the way to the line, coming out on top in a photo.
