Frankie DettoriFrankie Dettori had to settle for second place on his two big-race mounts at Maisons-Laffitte.

The Italian was hoping to add to his tally after having his first winner since his return from injury on Enable in the Irish Oaks at the Curragh on Saturday.

However, it was not to be, with his pair of rides for his retainer Al Shaqab Racing filling the runner-up spots.

Afandem lost his unbeaten tag when beaten half a length by Andre Fabre's Finche, a son of Frankel, in the Group Two Prix Eugene Adam.

Then, 2000 Guineas third Al Wukair found the Jean-Claude Rouget-trained Taareef too strong in the Group Three Prix Messidor, the odds-on shot going down by two lengths.
