Address Saint-Cloud this Tuesday, October 11, 2022 for the Tiercé-Quarté-Quinté + In this test, the Prix du Val d’Or will have to compete against each other as starters. The race will be held over 2400 meters, and will be endowed with €50,000.
In this event, Nobody’s (2) was the author of a remarkable season. His position on the value scale is affected. Third in a fifth over 2,500 meters on August 14, we will be careful not to condemn him rashly for his recent failure. The distance of 3,000 meters that he discovered that day seemed long. Therefore, he deserves credit for his comeback over 2,400 meters. Blue Swan (6) may be a little less sharp than last season. However, his most recent release was encouraging in a similar context. His margin of success seems, a priori, quite slim. At the end of a good course, this endearing servant has a very regular chance to finish, once again, among the top 5. Mysak Miky (11) looks like a young shoot. In fact, at the age of four, he only ran 14 times. He has done well in his return to this level of late, falling relatively short of a top 5 finish. Certainly perfectible, he deserves to be seen here.
Stephen Richter: Mika d’O (1) is doing very well lately. He took the lead a little early by force of circumstance, but he held his own admirably well in the circumstances. It was more than 2,000 meters that day. He also has titles in the classic distance call. His good-morning manner is undeniable, especially since he has freshness at the end of the season. We expect very good behavior.
Bruno Audiin: Srifanelogreen (3) has been in excellent form since his last start, in which he showed he could win a fastball at a value of 39. This engagement is the logical continuation and it is with confidence that we come into this race. With a good run, I hope he can win.
Stephane Wattel: Baden Rocks (4) has recovered very well from his last race and is in excellent training condition. From then on, we go to this event with confidence. Logically, it has the means to fight for the top positions.
Ludovico Rovisse: Smile Makers (5) is particularly fit at work. The quality of the course and the desire of the moment will be decisive in its result. At the end of a good race course, he has all the means to do well for his return to the handicaps.
Stephane Gouyette: Saam (7) just did very well at this level. During his previous two outings he had been relatively disappointed, but not unapologetically. At Dieppe, the ground was too light for his liking and the previous blow at Saint-Cloud found himself among the leading horses too soon. The horse is in good shape, titled to this level and comfortable at Saint-Cloud. Therefore, I expect a confirmation from him on Tuesday.
Henri-Alex Pantall: Rue des Irelandis (8) was entitled to a small break at the beginning of summer, now he has two courses in his legs. You can feel it on the rise and I think this time it can fit into the right mix. I expect a good performance.
Carlos Lener: Breath of Fire (9) is a very well known horse at this level. His preparation for this race went well. He is fresh at the end of the season and his partner, Ronan Thomas, knows him like the back of his hand. Having improved his position on the weight scale in recent months, our guest deserves credit here.
Pierre-Jean Fertillet: Totem (10) is a chic horse! Despite the penalties, he always gives his best in the competition and showed us that he stayed competitive at a value of 35.5. Always in good shape, we took the opportunity to try at this level. If he finishes in the top five he will have fulfilled his contract.
Bruno Audiin: Bamcalyb (12) is in great shape. Now, it has never had such a high value. It will be a test with such weight, but in its current form, it must be tried. Like any wait and see, it will be necessary to benefit from a smooth and trouble-free ride. If so, you may be considered for places.
Yoann Bonnefoy: Art of Fusion (13) is in great shape right now. His performances speak for him and I hope he can grab a good spot. We don’t mean to say that he can win, but in his current form, I hope he pleases us.
Julian Carayon: Joey Up (14) continues on several encouraging outings. He is approaching the end of the season with a lot of freshness, which is an obvious advantage. I expect a smooth track on Tuesday. If so, I expect good behavior. However, he is a horse that likes to attack and not get carried away by his rivals. Therefore, we must be patient with him and count on good progress in the race.
Stephane Wattel: Moon Wolf (15) is slowly getting back to good form, but I’m afraid the ground isn’t heavy enough for him on Tuesday yet. He is a fan of deep tracks and, although he has been lowered in value, I have a hard time recommending him. However, I hope to see him behave well.
Markus Nigge: Masterpower (16) shows some consistency, without playing the main roles. At its value, its margin is non-existent. However, the horse is in good shape, he has stamina and we took advantage of one of the last big handicaps of the season played on grass. Along with a very fit jockey, he’s not ruled out for a spot here.
