Arrival of the quinté: 7 – 5 – 2 – 6 – 10
The aptitude for very heavy ground (measured at 5.3) was necessary to shine this Tuesday at Saint-Cloud (Hauts-de-Seine). The least we can write is that Gourel (n ° 7), past favorite in the last moments before the start, did not care since he won at the cost of a very nice acceleration. Waiting behind, the partner of Maxime Guyon came closer in the middle of his opponents at the exit of the last turn to quickly secure a decisive advantage.
After his victory on October 8, Gourel offers himself a second success in a row, as well as a second quinté since the beginning of his career.
Recommended at “last minute” on our audiotel (0.892.683.675), Glory days (n ° 5) gave him a beautiful but vain reply in the home stretch, taking a clear second place at the expense of Moonwalk step (n ° 2), one of the most prominent, wait-and-see and good finisher.
Not the happiest when leaving the boxes, then wait-and-see within the peloton, more on the rope side, The Unexpected (n ° 6) could not do anything against the first three, however running in a good way to finish fourth.
As for Lettyt Storm (n ° 10), he waited a long time behind the first before being directed towards the outside at the entrance of the straight line and “to stay there a little”.
Sixth very close to the above, Gold des Sources (n ° 9) deserves a positive mention insofar as he animated the race at a sustained pace.
Kévin Romain indicated the quinté in the disorder in only six horses.
