As for 'les rosbifs', the Kempton all-weather winner Serva Jugum was the only one of the trio to receive much support; Prince Siegfried, close up behind Donativum and Crowded House in what was probably the best-contested sales race ever run, was almost as friendless as Zafisio in the market.
Serva Jugum, the most-fancied of the cross-Channel raiders, never got into a competitive position and was beaten over five lengths in eighth.
Paul Cole has booked Christophe Soumillon for Serva Jugum, winner of a Kempton maiden over today's distance of 1m a month ago on his only start to date, while Paul Blockley has also turned to a French-based jockey, Dominique Boeuf, to partner his Goodwood Listedrace winner Zafisio, who was fourth - promoted one place by the stewards after being hampered at a crucial stage - in a Group 3 at Longchamp last month.
They include the Andrew Balding-trained Prince Siegfried, Zafisio and the once-raced Serva Jugum, who is trained by Paul Cole.
Short on experience but long on ability, Paul Cole's newcomer Serva Jugum took the mile conditions event.
