According to the form and the odds Bahri (5/2) was no match for the 3 year old filly Ridgewood Pearl (8/13 favourite), again he ran with a pacemaker. Bahri was drawn widest of all the six runners. After the stalls opened Willie Carson took him to the outside rail to ride him under the trees as this is where the better ground was to be found due to the trees protecting the ground from both the watering and the rainfall. The other 5 runners, including his pacemaker, took the shorter and more conventional route against the inside rail on the ground that was described officially as Good to Soft, Soft in places. By the time they had come to the turn and Willie Carson had switched him back to the inside rail he had an advantage of 3 lengths, he then went on to win by six lengths with Ridgewood Pearl in second.

Doyle admitted that he had gone to the front earlier than he had planned. A month later she returned to France for the Prix du Moulin in which she finished strongly to take fourth place, less than two lengths behind the winner Ridgewood Pearl.
