The Michael Jarvis-trained Philatelist finished sixth.
Ridden by Thomas Huet, Sky Crusader was recording his eleventh victory on the surface. The-seven-year-old started favourite after a fourth placed effort in the Group 3 September Stakes at Kempton Park last time.
Nigge said "He won well and the race had a good rhythm which he likes. We will now find a race at Cagnes over ten furlongs in another Listed event."
