Turtle Bowl has too much class for the others.

British and Irish raiders in the Prix Jean Prat had no answer as Turtle Bowl came with a burst under Olivier Peslier to secure the Group One contest at Chantilly yesterday.

But the 9-2 second-favourite had to survive a stewards' inquiry as Ad Valorem was hampered inside the final furlong, forcing Kieren Fallon to momentarily stop riding on Aidan O'Brien's charge.

Mick Channon's Rocamadour was a close third, having been in front with less than two furlongs of the mile to run and only being edged out of second by Starpix.

Home Affairs was involved in the scrimmaging with Turtle Bowl and Ad Valorem, but was far from disgraced in fourth.
