Ivory Land showed boundless enthusiasm to win the Prix Vicomtesse Vigier at Longchamp.
The Alain de Royer-Dupre-trained stayer tracked eventual runner-up Usuelo for virtually every stride of the Group Two assignment, before making his move late in the day.
Stephane Pasquier's partner (8-1) was still full of running as they crossed the line, with the Marco Botti-trained Joshua Tree (4-1 co-favourite) an honourable fourth.
Popular veteran Kasbah Bliss was on a distinctly non-going day and was never a factor.
The winner was completing a good day for his trainer who had earlier tasted Group One glory courtesy of Sagawara in the Prix Saint-Alary.
