Hurricane Lane, right, wins the Irish Derby at The Curragh



This Wednesday’s Group 1 Grand Prix de Paris has drawn a field of 11 topped by Irish Derby winner Hurricane Lane. The Godolphin-owned sophomore son of Frankel was a late supplement to the 1 1/2-mile contest at Longchamp, and will again be ridden by William Buick on behalf of trainer Charlie Appleby.

The colt’s only loss in five starts came when third in the Epsom Derby, when he lost both front shoes during the running.

On Hurricane Lane’s chances, Buick told Sky Sports Racing: “He’s a horse who is still lightly-raced and he’s probably still on the up… You’d expect it to be a good race but the team at home have been very happy with him and I’m really looking forward to it.”
