A big day at Auteuil on Sunday 26th with three Group 2s and a Group 3 Race 4, the Prix Jean Stern, sees Jean-Paul Gallorini’s Kotkikova (photo) bidding for her 4th consecutive win as she gears up for next month’s Prix Dufaure which crowns the best 4yo chaser of the day. Then a half an hour later Arnaud Chaillé-Chaillé’s Bonito du Berlais will be looking for his 8th win a row and further endorse his claims as best 4yo hurdler. And in race 7, Gallorini’s 2014 G1 scorers Roll On Has and Hippomène will be taking on Harry Fry’s Activial on his first French bid in the Prix Léon Rambaud, one of Auteuil’s French Champion hurdle preps run in June.

Fabrice Souloy’s Moving On bagged his first harness career Group 1 in the Prix de l’Atlantique at Enghien on Saturday. The 6yo Swedish import, a model of consistency since arriving in France in 2014 with 7 wins and 4 podiums at Vincennes from 13 starts, has now boosted her tally to 9 French victories. Although drawn 11 behind the mobile gate, Franck Nivard gave the 10/1 shot a great trip behind the leaders and managed to wear down front-runner Timoko a hundred metres from home.
