Guillemin, Collet successful with classic prospects
23 March 2018
Classic hopes were on show at Fontainebleau yesterday, with a brace of Listed races run on soft ground.
The Prix la Camargo brought just seven fillies together for the mile event and the Rodolphe Collet-trained Sully got straight back down to business following a six-months’ absence. Winner of the Listed Critérium de Lyon late September, she was subsequently put away for the winter. Cristian Demuro gave her a patient ride for the first 1400m before asking the question. She accelerated quickly, passed the leader Princesschope and won with a length to spare. Ghazawaat ran in well for third, a neck in front of Herecomesthesun.
The colts’ version, the Prix Omnium II attracted a smaller field of five and most of the money was on Fabrice Chappet’s Intellogent who was an impressively courageous winner on his debut at Saint-Cloud last October. He found himself pitted against the tough Didier Guillemin-trained Francesco Béré in the closing stages of the race. Intellogent put in another brave performance but went down by a half-length. Nosdargent, who came to Paris on a hat-trick, ran third a further 2½ lengths back.
