The starters of Quinté+ for this Sunday June 26
PARIS-VINCENNES – 2850 METERS – DEPARTURE: 3:15 PM
The forces present
Rarely presented unshod four feet, ENZO D’ESSARTS (8) faces one of his goals. Holder of ten podiums in twelve tests on the big track of Vincennes, he can also be considered as a fulcrum.
Winner of the Prix du Gâtinais (Gr.3) with style, DECOLORATION (14) is more than capable of getting on the podium despite her initial handicap. Noted on his most recent outing, ELU DE DOMPIERRE (4) is ready to deliver his best value.
At the end of a clear course, the excellent sprinter ELVIS DU VALLON (15) can get involved in the fight for runners-up. FLY SPEED (11), CHARLY DE L’AUNAY (6) and ELITE DE JIEL (13) are all possibilities in this fairly open event.

The starters in detail and the opinion of the pros
1 – AL CAPONE STECCA
This student of Fabrice Souloy has shown its limits and must content itself with the “crumbs” in such a society. Moreover, he has never gleaned the slightest podium in fifteen tests on the big track of Vincennes. Other protagonists are clearly preferable to him.
The reporter’s opinion:
“Al Capone Stecca (1) has just provided a good final effort, after having been slow to find the opening. However, he has not yet shown the sufficient means to compete for victory in such a society. In short, it is as difficult to rule out an extended wetsuit as it is to recommend warmly. »
2 – BELKER
Arrived in the workforce of Jean-Michel Bazire during the month of March, this son of Scarlet Knight has taken up a few places since, without making any sparks. Barred by several rivals, it will only be considered in the event of failures.
Nicolas Bazire, son of the trainer:
“I haven’t led Belker (2) the best lately, but he still didn’t hold his game badly. It has already shown resources, especially when my father drove it for the first time last April. He is of a level quite similar to that of his boxing companion, Heading Reference (5). He is capable of contesting the finish. »
HAUFOR GULL NON-STARTING
Very hard on the effort, this representative of Christian Bigeon has just won a Quinté+ at this distance with authority. Winner of Group 3 last winter, it is still behind in terms of gains. Except incident, it will not be far from the truth.
Charles-Julien Bigeon, driver:
“Goéland d’Haufor (3) is having a very good year, despite a program that is far from ideal for him, with commitments that are fairly spaced out over time. I think he will be even better this time, running a fortnight apart. The lot is quite strong, but it seems to have a good part to play. Without incident, he should be on the podium. »
4 – ELECT OF DOMPIERRE
In eight totally barefoot tries, this wait-and-see has finished seven times in the top four. Noted during his most recent performance and associated with Eric Raffin for the occasion, it seems able to take up a place.
David Haon, coach:
“Elu de Dompierre (4) faces a high lot this Sunday. The horse is pretty good at the moment, but I’m a little worried about the recent repeated trips, which may have dulled it. For the occasion, we try to unshoe him from the four feet. If he were to take fourth or fifth place, the contract would be fulfilled. »
5 – HEADING REFERENCE
This second advantage of Jean-Michel Bazire always gives the best of itself and has just proven its form on the classic course. Nevertheless, he is moving up a category compared to his last performances and seems blocked by several rivals. At the end of the trail.
Nicolas Bazire, driver:
“Heading Reference (5) is a manageable horse that always gives its all. He is currently doing well and seems to have a chance, without having much room either. He and Belker (2) are about equal, but mine is probably a little easier to ride and slightly more reliable. »
6 – CHARLY DE L’AUNAY
Claimed by Junior Guelpa following his success on May 3, this 10-year-old gelding seems to have found a second youth. Good third lately, at the lower level, it will try to take advantage of its form to surprise. For lovers of outsiders.
The reporter’s opinion:
“Charly de l’Aunay (6) has found a second youth since joining Junior Guelpa’s boxes. Author of a very good performance lately, this old horse seems to be at the top of his game now. Despite strong opposition, it should be given a place in an expanded selection. »
7 – DAYAN WINNER
A true model of courage, this son of‘Offshore Dream has been presenting beautiful music for many months. Nevertheless, it remains much more efficient on flat profiles. In such a lot, his luck is only secondary.
Hugues Monthulé, driver:
“Dayan Winner (7) performed well during his three outings of the year, posting reductions in kilometers of around 1’13”. The lot is raised, but it follows all the trains. It is in really good condition and can integrate the winning combination of Quinté+. »
8 – ENZO D’ESSARTS
Winner one time out of four since the start of his career, this follower of the race in the lead finds a course on which he has never disappointed. In addition, his only try without his four irons resulted in a convincing second place. It looks formidable.
Rodolphe Lagadeuc, trainer:
“Enzo d’Essarts (8) will be barefoot for the occasion and seems to face a lot in his strings. I would like him to have a hidden route, because he has just moved forward at Enghien. If so, he is capable of stepping onto the podium. I prefer it a little on flat tracks, but it has already raced very well at Vincennes. »
9 – BLACK GODDESS
After a long crossing of the desert, this wait-and-see resurfaced in the Laval stage of the Grand National du Trot. She gets along well with Pierre-Yves Verva and will be greatly benefited by the likely sustained pace. Not impossible.
Pierre-Yves Verva, driver:
“The other day, Déesse Noire (9) provided excellent value to win in Laval. She gained morale in the straight line by overflowing her opponents. She’s really on top right now, but there’s still some serious opposition this time around. If it benefits from a hidden route and the pace is selective, it can grab a good place, or even the podium. »
10 – DIEGO DE CAHOT
After two excellent performances in the Paris region, this representative of Jacques Cotel was probably led too offensively in Toulouse. Well engaged and again presented barefoot, it deserves a note of distrust.
Thierry Duvaldestin, trainer:
“Lately, Diego de Cahot (10) hasn’t felt comfortable on the right hand side. It had provided good value on May 7 at Vincennes, but had enjoyed a golden run that day. Despite the strong opposition, I believe he is capable of getting on the podium, even if there are two or three horses that seem superior to him on paper. »
11 – FLY SPEED
This representative of the Léomy Stable has references at this level and will come unshod from the previous ones, which has not happened to him since February 2021. At the end of a clear course, his place is in the top five.
Jean-Marie Monclin, trainer:
“The other day, Fly Speed (11) disappointed me a bit at Enghien. After the race he was not clean. We have, a priori, fixed this small problem and I hope to see it provide its best value this time. I decided to defer him from the previous ones, even if that doesn’t seem to transform him. The commitment is good, but there is a lot of quality. I’m not sure, especially given his recent problem and the opposition, but I obviously hope to see him compete for the finish. »
12 – GREAT ART
Usually quite serious, this talented subject has made blunders during his last two performances. Ideally engaged at the limit of the decline, it still has a first theoretical chance. Pros and cons.
Adrien Lamy, driver:
“Grand Art (12) has just made a semi-return and will surely be in good shape. He discovers a very good entry, at the limit of the decline, but his fault remains the start. If he starts on the right leg and then benefits from an economy run, his place is in the top five. There are still some great customers in this event. »
13 – ELITE OF JIEL
This daughter of Niky gave us magnificent finishes during her last three outings at this course. Despite her initial handicap of 25 meters, she has the means to worry the main favourites.
Jean-Luc Dersoir, trainer:
“Despite her handicap of 25 meters, I decided to hire Elite de Jiel (13) because she is going through a good period of form. Obviously, going the distance is never easy, especially since the opposition is serious, but they are still capable of finishing third, fourth or fifth. It just has to be able to be brought back during the course. »
14 – DISCOLORATION
Endowed with an inexhaustible fund, this student of Jean-Michel Baudouin has just prepared for this engagement in Laval. It is better when it can animate the debates, but its competitiveness at this level is no longer to be proven. To keep in good order.
Gabriele Gelormini, driver:
“Of course, Décoloration (14) will have to go the distance, but she is a classy mare. His entourage is also quite confident before the hour. She is just as capable of waiting as of taking the train on her own. She has faced better lots before. If the circumstances are favorable to her, she is one of the candidates for success. »
15 – ELVIS DU VALLON
This protege of Charles Cuiller is none other than the title holder of this meeting. Now he has to run beaten to give his full potential, which is why a steady pace would serve his interests. If he can place his tip at the right time, the podium is accessible.
Charles Cuiller, trainer:
“This commitment is timely for Elvis du Vallon (15). He is in good condition for this race, but there are still good horses at the near post, like Goéland d’Haufor (3), to whom he will have to give back the distance. I hope that his driver will be able to start a little so as not to be too far during the course. It can just as easily win, like last year, as finish third, fourth or fifth. »
