Grand Steeple D-4: an explosive Great Hurdle Race

Races / 17.05.2022

Six withdrawals have been recorded for the Grande Course de Haies d’Auteuil (Gr1) which will take place on Saturday. Postage paid ** (Coastal Path) will run the Grand Steeplechase (Gr1) instead. Melon (Medicean) will not be part of the Mullins convoy. Delta Lightning (Diamond Boy) had a big handicap in the steeplechase last Saturday. Golden Papilla (King’s Best) just removed a big handicap. Great Alex (Alex the Winner) is a Listed horse and Colbert du Berlais (Poliglote) should arrive on the freshness of the Prix La Barka (Gr2). This Wednesday, Al Boom Photo (Buck’s Boum) should also disappear from the list since he will run the Grand Steeplechase. All these little people have therefore disappeared from a Grande Course de Haies which promises to be grandiose. In front of Autonomy ** (Blue Brazil), back on top, Hermes Bay (Crillon) and Thelema (Sidestep), Willie Mullins unsheathed Klassical Dream (Dream Well), a hot horse but double winner of the Punchestown Champion Series Hurdle (Gr1), Kemboy (Voix du Nord), winner of the Punchestown Gold Cup (Gr1) and finally Tornado Flyer (Flemensfirth), winner of the King George VI Chase (Gr1). The France-Ireland match in the Grande Course de Haies will give us great sport!

Twelve more in the Sagan

Gala Marceau (Galiway) is undefeated, in two outings, over hurdles and she has just wandered in the Prix Girofla (L). This will be the big attraction of the Prix Sagan (Gr3), the championship for 3-year-old fillies. She is one of the remaining twelve. Six packages were recorded in the Sagan. François Nicolle has retired all his fillies. In the Prix Aguado (Gr3), he shouldn’t have any horses either, as he told us on Tuesday morning. The major package of the Prix Sagan is that ofStar of Berlais ** (Great Pretender), impressive winner at Compiègne. Still in contention, we find Najima Star (Prince Gibraltar), solo winner of the Prix Wild Monarch (L), and Secret Rose (Secret Agent), second in Girofla.
