"I thought that I had no chance at all on the far side but, just as in the German Derby, he picked up amazingly," Peslier told The Racing Post. "I hope that I will be available to ride him again in the Arc." German conditioner Andreas Schutz trained the first two finishers."I am delighted with the winner's performance and even more pleased with Next Desert as we weren't so confident that he would run such a good race today," he said. "Dai Jin proved today that he is a class act. He will probably go straight for the Arc." Next Desert, racing third early, slipped through on the inside and led until Dai Jin's challenge.
WH Sport International owns the Dai Jin, a 3-year-old English-bred colt by Peintre Celebre.
