Campanelle maintained her unbeaten record as she ran out a ready winner of the Darley Prix Morny at Deauville.
Trained by American Wesley Ward, who was winning the Group One for a third time following the victories of No Nay Never and Lady Aurelia, she beat a strong-looking field with a modicum of ease.
Typically quick through the early stages of the race, Frankie Dettori was keen to head towards the centre of the track.
Dettori, who opted to miss the Ebor meeting to ride in France over the last two weekends, appeared to wait for the others a furlong out before asking the Queen Mary winner to quicken up.
And she did so, in impressive fashion, handling the switch up to six furlongs and soft ground in style to win by two lengths.
The winner was sent off favourite, and returned an industry SP of 2-1, while she was a 17-10 shot on the French-based PMU system.
Clive Cox's Nando Parrado (12-1 SP, 11-1 PMU), a shock 150-1 winner of the Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot, stuck to the rail with only Tactical following, and kept on well to claim a creditable second.
Richard Fahey’s Rhythm Master (10-3 SP, 6-1 PMU) took third.
Dettori told Sky Sports Racing: "I was very impressed with her in the Queen Mary. She’s not like Lady Aurelia, she was small and very fast.
"She’s much taller, she’s grown since Ascot, she’s got an amazing, long stride and while she coped with the ground, she’s much better on good ground.
"Wesley was very confident. I knew I had a good filly, but I was worried about the ground. Her class came through.
"She’s been here all week, I’ve seen her every day and, being honest, she’s half asleep in the box, but she knows what it’s all about and was ready to go.
"I had no plan, she jumped so I was in front and she’s quite sensible and able to listen to my commands. When I asked her to slow down she did, and when I asked her to quicken, she quickened. She’s a very smart two-year-old.
"The Cheveley Park is an obvious target and I’m sure the idea of the Breeders’ Cup over a mile might come into it, but over a mile, that’s a different ball game.
"I’ve had a fantastic week with some great results."
For Dettori, a fruitful week in France is now at an end and on returning home he will need to quarantine.
He said: "I've had a fantastic week, I’ve really enjoyed it.
"I’ve filled my car with wine, baguettes and cheese and I’m going to travel through the night, get my test tomorrow and lock myself in the house for a week and reflect on these beautiful weekends that I’ve had."

James Fanshawe's Audarya caused a huge shock in the Darley Prix Jean Romanet.
While Newmarket-based Fanshawe had won the race twice recently with Ribbons (2014) and Speedy Boarding (2016), Audarya looked to have plenty to find with the main protagonists.
Ridden by Ioritz Mendizabal, she travelled sweetly into contention before hitting the front a furlong out in the mile-and-a-quarter heat.
Close home it only concerned two fillies, with Ambition the only serious rival to Audarya, but Mendizabal only needed to give his mount a couple of flicks with the whip to keep her up to her work and she responded willingly, with the pair coming well clear.
The winner returned an industry SP of 33-1, while she was an even bigger 48-1 chance on the French-based PMU system.
Ambition (9-1 SP, 10-1 PMU) was followed home by Romanciere (16-1 SP, 12-1 PMU).
John Gosden’s Nazeef, winner of the Falmouth Stakes and the mount of Frankie Dettori, was the hot favourite, but she failed to shine on testing ground and was well beaten.
Audarya was last seen winning a handicap on the all-weather at Newcastle, triumphing off a mark of 99.
Mendizabal told Sky Sports Racing: "Before the race I spoke to the trainer and he asked me to get a good position, but more importantly to get her to relax.
"He said if she didn’t relax she wouldn’t finish, as it was a very good race.
"She won easy. The trainer wasn’t sure about the ground, he felt she’d prefer good ground so I’m not sure how she won like that."
