"He looked smart coming into this and was supplemented like our filly, he's probably one of the best mile-and-a-half horses around at the moment. She's run a very good race in defeat to him.

"There's options back with the fillies now, we'll see how she comes out of it and probably do that."

Bookmaker reaction was positive after the race and they are optimistic for upcoming races

Bookmakers responded positively to Feed The Flame's chances in the upcoming Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe, a race that the esteemed Bary has yet to claim victory in.

"He was remarkable today. The Qatar Prix du Jockey Club came a little soon for him. He's a very, very good horse, and 2,400 metres is his true distance," Bary said.

"He's very calm and always takes a little time to find his feet. However, when he does so, look at the way he accelerated! We've been patient with him - he didn't run at two, and Jean-Louis Bouchard (owner) has been rewarded.

"He'll run in the Qatar Prix Niel before heading to the Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe."

Demuro added: “When I asked him to quicken, he picked up in two strides. He went very fast!”
