Cokoriko X Kalta

Second

Epic Tale  

Third

Happy De Reve

James Reveley took up the running early before deciding the pace was just too strong and dropped the filly in to sit a handy third position for much of the journey. The Donatien Sourdeau de Beauregard-trained four-year-old had to wait for gaps up the straight but soon put the race to bed once finding room.  That victory brought up the hat-trick and this progressive daughter of Cokoriko can continue to climb up in grade.

Opus Viervil X Thétis de Vaujours

Second

Guide Moi Forgan

Third

Granvillaise Bleue

Mathieu Mottier took up the running at an early stage prior to setting into second place off, what looked a reasonable pace. The pair kicked for home at the 500m marker to eventually run out a comfortable winner of the G2 feature. Last year’s G1 Prix du Président de la République (2850m) winner will more than likely look to step back up to the highest level in the future.

Second

Hirondelle du Rib

Hollywood Night

The Franck Leblanc-trained filly settled into a nice rhythm by Anthony Barrier and the pair made smooth progress to take it up turning into the straight. The daughter of Gazouillis showed a good attitude to fight off the challenge of Hirondelle du Rib. The G1 Saint-Léger des Trotteurs (2450m) winner has now qualified for the G1 Prix du Président de la République (2850m) at Vincennes.

Neli Has

Ladyville made all the running under Bertrand Lestrade for a comfortable five length success to ensure a one two for trainer Francois Nicolle. Already a G3 winner over hurdles it would be no surprise if the son of Doctor Dino steps back up to that grade in the near future.

Second

Anterselva

Ma Noire

The Stephane Wattel-trained filly ran out a cosy length-and-a-quarter winner to remain unbeaten in two starts. Always well positioned throughout the daughter of Caravaggio ran on strongly to score over the same course and distance as she did on debut. The success marks a first stakes winner for Caravaggio who leads the way in the European first season sires table by earnings ahead of Ardad.

Second

Sublimis

Third

Vaucelles

The four-year-old, who finished second to Sottsass in the G1 Prix de l’Arc De Triomphe (2400m) last year, was beaten by Sublimis on reappearance. However, Francis-Henri Graffard’s colt managed to overturn that form despite not having the race run to suit. The G1 German Derby (2400m) winner should be more at home off a stronger gallop with the G1 Prix de l’Arc De Triomphe (2400m) being the main objective.

See The Rose

The progressive Tahlie completed the four-timer when scoring by a head under a superb Christophe Soumillon ride. The Pascal Bary-trained filly became the first Group winner for her sire Rio De La Plata. There could be plenty more to come from her and a step up to the top level looks to be on the agenda.

Omnia Munda Mundis

The Lady Bamford-owned filly broke her maiden tag in February and bounced back from a disappointing eighth in the Listed Prix Caravelle (2100m) at Toulouse to record a first black-type success. Eddy Hardouin always had his filly well positioned as the pair drew clear for a one-length victory. This success makes it 205 stakes winners for top sire Dubawi.

The son of Penny’s Picnic battled on strongly to score by a neck under a strong Aurelien Lemaitre ride. A drop back to 1000m looked to suit the Mme S Lanslots-trained gelding and it would be no surprise were he to contest similar events throughout the rest of his campaign.
