Miss France won the 1,000 Guineas at Newmarket on Sunday, providing trainer Andre Fabre with his first success in the first fillies' classic of the season.

A disappointing sixth on her return to action in the Prix Imprudence at Maisons-Laffitte, she was removed from the Guineas' betting by some bookmakers at that point.

However, confidence returned in recent days and the 7-1 shot held off Lightning Thunder, which set off at 14-1, by a neck. Ihtimal was third in a thrilling finish ahead of 100-1 shot Manderley, which had set the pace and was still in front with a furlong to run.
