The last day of the Cagnes sur Mer jumps meeting brought with it some unexpected results and no more so than in the highlight of yesterday’s programme. Buck’s Bank, outright favourite for the 4600m Grand Prix de la Ville de Nice chase, was solidly undone by Flavin in the Gr.III event, providing his trainer Patricia Butel with her maiden victory at group level.

The jumps meeting at Cagnes sur Mer goes out on a high note next Sunday with a trio of Listed races and the highlight of the meeting, the Gr.III Grand Prix de la Ville de Nice.The Listed Grand Steeple-Chase des 4 Ans over 3800m (2m3f) draws on a small but select field with no standout winner. Vlatan, Bellaville and Alix Betty have all won over fences this meeting and the François-Marie Cottin-trained Estraline has made her mark in claiming company.

Unlike either of the previous two preps for the Prix d’Amérique, yesterday’s Gr.II Prix de Bourgogne was a romp in the plainest sense of the term, and a sign of things to come it could very well prove. One short of the fifteen went to post following the withdrawal of likely favourite Texas Charm for the 2100m Autostart event and quite a show it turned out to be.
