Muir's raiders finish fourth in Bordeaux-Le Bouscat Listed contests
REPORT: FRANCE, Saturday
BIG ROBERT and Resplendent Light, William Muir's two runners at Bordeaux-Le Bouscat on Saturday afternoon, both finished fourth in Listed events.
The Grand Prix de Sud-Ouest went to the 16-1 chance Renko and a race later Polan, a 13-1 shot, held on to win the Grand Prix Inter-Regional des 3 ans.
A slow pace in the latter race did not suit Resplendent Light and Davy Bonilla, and they were finally beaten by under a length. Indeed, the whole field of six were covered by under two lengths.
Big Robert was struggling in the final stages of his race and was nearly six lengths adrift of the winner, who just had the better of Quest For Honour by a short head.
