The starters of Quinté+ for this Tuesday July 5
VICHY – 2950 METRES – DEPARTURE: 6:00 p.m.
The forces present
After a break, FANTASIA DE LIGNY (11) wasted no time in regaining the fullness of its means, as evidenced by its recent honorary victory against quality 6-year-olds. This time, she will simply have her elders on her way. Except incident, this remarkable finisher will not be far from the truth.
The endearing FIESTA DU BELVER (8) regularly rewards us with sumptuous ends of the race and has a first chance in such a company. Preceded by our favorite last time, when it was his second leg recovery race after castration, FRESNEAUX (10) is clearly on the right track. ITON FAVORITE (13) and ELAN BAROQUE (14) continue to disappoint, but they enjoy an ideal commitment not far from the earnings ceiling.
ERA DE LAVADOUR (9), always very tenacious in the fight, FARCEUSE DU PRE (4), for whom everything will be a question of wisdom, and EDITOR LA RAVELLE (6), carefully prepared for this meeting, are all great possibilities for places.

The starters in detail and the opinion of the pros
1 – EUREQUEUS LUDOIS
Very pleasant at the age of 5, this son of Scipion du Goutier then experienced health problems that put him on the sidelines for more than two years. He has not been able to convince lately and must above all reassure at present.
Stéphane Bourlier, trainer and driver:
“Eurequus Ludois (1) had some health problems, including colic. It took time to heal him. He defended himself well the last time in Caen by playing on the rails. He likes Vichy and will be barefoot this time. He is well engaged in the lead, but there are serious customers in the second echelon. He can claim fourth or fifth place. »
2 – DORIA DE VAUVILLE
This brave mare obtained her best titles in the claiming classes. She has not tasted the joys of the podium since April 2021 and seems totally outclassed. Moreover, it can be put aside.
Yoann Lavigne, coach:
“Doria de Vauville (2) has been a little disappointing lately. For once, she takes the lead. I have noted this commitment for several weeks. It has no margin and must benefit from a good course along the rope to be competitive. A small place can go to him. »
3 – GOLDEN DESTRIEDER
This pupil of Loïc Lerenard has shown his limits in such a society and has just failed in a claiming race. Moreover, it has always failed at the Bellerive racecourse. Other protagonists are clearly preferable to him.
Loïc Lerenard, coach:
“Destrier d’Or (3) has not been the happiest lately at Enghien. At this level, he has no leeway. With a good course of running along the rail, it can be seen at the end of the combination, but not much better. »
4 – JOKER OF THE PRE
Since its pleasant success of May 15, here, this wait-and-see has continued to disappoint. She clearly has the potential to compete in such a society, it remains to be seen in what arrangements she will present herself on Tuesday. A matter of printing.
Cedric Terry, driver:
“After her great victory at Vichy, Farceuse du Pré (4) had mixed fortunes. She is not every day, but displays a beautiful shape in the morning at work. There is better than her at the start and everything will be a question of wisdom. She can use her initial advance to keep a small lot. »
5 – EDDY DU LOISIR
Serious but limited, this representative of Rémy Desprès has no room for maneuver in such a society. He is comfortable without his leg irons, but it is clear that the 7-year-olds are clearly superior to him. Just an outsider.
Remy Desprès, trainer and driver:
“For his semi-return, Eddy du Loisir (5) behaved well. His periods of form are often quite short, but know that he has worked well for this race. On paper, several rivals are superior to it. Its task promises to be delicate, but it should not be completely prohibited. »
6 – EDITOR LA RAVELLE
After two warm-up races, this good finisher will turn up completely unshod for this golden entry. Confirmed at Vichy, it has also already shone in lots of good quality. At the end of a clear course, his place is at the finish.
Eric Gilles Blot, trainer:
“After some health concerns, Editeur la Ravelle (6) now has two courses in his legs. I spotted this date a long time ago. He is well on his way and I think he is ready. There aren’t many of us at the entry level, which worries me. He is better at running hidden. With the presence of 7 years, a place would satisfy me. »
7 – DREAM THE BEST
Absent for fifteen months, this 9-year-old gelding requalified on June 10 at Grosbois in 1’15”3. For his comeback, two weeks later at Vincennes, he quickly let go. The impasse on its chances is strongly advised.
Benoît Rouer, driver:
“Dream The Best (7) had leg issues. Everything is back to normal, but it will need several rounds before being competitive. You can dismiss it. »
8 – BELVER FESTIVAL
Shaped by the late Robert Chauvin, this superb sprinter paid a vibrant tribute to her former mentor by winning the Quinté+ on June 13 at Caen. At the end of a good hidden course, it will not be far from the truth.
The Reporter’s opinion:
“Fiesta du Belver (8) is well known at this level and has just won brilliantly on the Caen track. A formidable finisher, she likes the rope on the right and will once again evolve without her irons. With a smooth run, she has her place on the podium. »
9 – LAVADOUR ERA
Lately, this Mathieu Auvray protege has not been unworthy in well-composed lots. It has often had bad luck at Vichy, but its competitiveness for places is certain. It has its place in an enlarged combination.
Mathieu Auvray, trainer and driver:
“Lastly, Era de Lavadour (9) finished well after a wise race. Here she discovers a good commitment. She is a mare who never lets go. She can adopt all tactics. I fear the 7 year olds, but I would be disappointed not to see her finish in the top five. »
10 – FRESNEAUX
Castrated after a mediocre 6-year-old year, this pupil of the Martens brothers completed two very interesting warm-up courses. It will be difficult to take revenge on Fantasia de Ligny (11), but the podium remains possible.
Christophe Martens, driver :
“Fresneaux (10) has now returned to his best level. His performance in the Toulouse GNT is very good. He stayed well at work and discovered good racing conditions. It is one of the priority choices of this Quinté+. »
11 – FANTASIA DE LIGNY
Winner more than once out of four since the start of her career, this classy mare only found the excellent Gently de Muze to bar her way to success in the Toulouse stage of the GNT. His theoretical luck is first rate.
Yannick Henry, trainer:
“Fantasia de Ligny (11) fought really well in the Toulouse stage of the GNT. She didn’t give her driver any difficulty in the turns. She has to return the distance this time, but the lot is less. It is best when it can be preserved. With a smooth run, she must fight for victory. »
12 – SAID DANICA
This son of Ricimer leaves us unsatisfied since his honorable fifth place in the GNT stage at Salon-de-Povence on March 30. Held out by the youngest, it will have to benefit from favorable circumstances to grab a small place.
Maxime Busset, trainer:
“Despite his advanced age, Dixit Danica (12) still shows character. In the morning, he shows that he still has the desire. I am in doubt with him. There is opposition and I need him to reassure me. Fifth place would satisfy me. »
13 – ITON FAVORITE
This resident of Hugues Levesque has disappointed a lot this year and has not been seen since April 27. That said, he is revising his ambitions downwards and will present himself unshod from the rear from the outset. In pure class, he obviously has his say.
Coach Hughes Levesque:
“We are in the dark with Favorite of Iton (13). We were able to give him care and show flexibility at work. Tuesday’s commitment is really good. We align it in its best configuration to know where it is. There are horses in better shape than him. He has a very good chance on his class, but above all I need to be reassured. »
14 – ELAN BAROQUE
This son of Quaro displays disturbing music, but let’s remember that he had been noted down at Marseille-Borély on June 3. Ideally located at the earnings ceiling and presented without its four irons, it deserves a special mention.
Loris Garcia, trainer and driver:
“We must not condemn Elan Baroque (14) in his last race because I gave him a bad run. Commitment is interesting. On the other hand, the rope on the right is not his cup of tea. He is unlucky in the race, but displays an optimal form in the morning. I advise you not to ban it. »
