Recorder half to Gr.1 winner prevails at first asking

HEARTACHE TONIGHT (FR) (f, 2, Recorder {GB}--Salvation {GB},by Montjeu {Ire}), a half-sister to the connections' G1 Prix de Royallieu, G1 QIPCO British Champions Fillies & Mares S. and G2 Hardwicke S. heroine Wonderful Tonight (Fr) (Le Havre {Ire}),was sluggish from the stalls but in front after two furlongs. Allowed to coast on the lead, the 2-1 favourite stayed on up the middle of the straight to score by 2 1/2 lengths from Indian Gold(Fr) (The Grey Gatsby {Ire}). Alongside the high-class Wonderful Tonight, whose career was cut short by injury when being prepared for last year's Arc, the dam also produced the Forever Together S. winner Penjade (Fr) (Air Chief Marshal {Ire}) who was multiple listed-placed in this country. The second dam is the Listed Lingfield Oaks Trial winner Birdie (GB) (Alhaarth {Ire}),whose best performer was the GIII Providencia S. scorer Hostess (GB) (Iffraaj {GB}). From the family of the Ballydoyle luminary Camelot (GB) by Salvation's sire Montjeu, her yearling colt is by Le Havre (Ire).
