Tuesday's Prix Parade d'Amour for unraced 3-year-old fillies was the stage for the entry of the latest TDN Rising Star as Juddmonte's Wensleydale (GB) (Frankel {GB}) cut a dash in the sunshine that preceded a wintry snowstorm. A daughter of the speedy G3 Ballyogan S. winner Divine (Ire) (Dark Angel {Ire}), the Henri-Francois Devin-trained chestnut was quickly away under Pierre-Charles Boudot before being restrained to track the leaders. Tanking her way to the front with two furlongs remaining, the 5-1 shot showed a sharp turn of acceleration to settle the result and was able to coast to a two-length success from Takemebythehand (GB) (The Gurkha {Ire}), with another 3 1/2 lengths back to Goldistyle (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}), the daughter of Goldikova (Ire) (Anabaa).
