Dalakhani Overcomes Chevalier in Criterium

The Aga Khan's 2-year-old Dalakhani stretched his unbeaten run to three on Saturday with a neck victory over Aidan O'Brien's Chevalier in the Group I Criterium International at Saint-Cloud.

Christophe Soumillon took the half-brother to Daylami past Michael Kinane, aboard Chevalier, well inside of the final furlong of the one-mile event.

The first two were well clear of the third-place finisher, Paul Cole's Governor Brown, who was five lengths back.
