The prognosis Canalturf.com
The Toulouse racecourse will be the scene of the seventh stage of the Trotting Grand National, this Wednesday. Easy winner recently at Vichy, GENTLY DE MUZE (photo) comes with strong arguments.
4 GENTLY DE MUZE : During his last eleven courses, this 6-year-old trained by Jean-Michel Bazire never finished further than 4th. Better still, he signed ten podiums, including six successes. Recent winner at Vichy, proof of his aptitude for right-hand rope courses, he promises to be one of the most formidable.
15 WALLON GANGSTERS : He is one of the best in his class. Both under saddle (He won the Prix de Vincennes (Gr.I), in 2019), and in the sulky (He finished 2nd in the last Critérium des 5-ans). Dauphin to Astonishing in the Prix des Ducs de Normandie (Gr.II), last month, he has a major chance here.
8 DOUGLAS DU PONT : After having suffered two disqualifications in April, he signed a victory worthy of interest last month at Vincennes, before taking 2nd place in a fifth, at the start of the month on the Large Track. Double winner in Toulouse, when he was still under the rule of Yves Vidal, he deserves credit.
14 EIRE OF HELIOS : This mare with a good burst of final speed no longer has to prove herself in tournaments of this kind, posting two successes and no less than eighteen places in 25 straight races. It also took part in the finish of the stages in Amiens, Reims, Châteaubriant, Croisé-Laroche and Laval. We keep.
11 FAKIR DESERVED : This is none other than the defending champion. Even if this year it will have to go the distance, unlike last year, it should be given a note of distrust, especially since its recent 2nd place, moreover on this Toulouse track, attests to its good current physical condition.
13 FLOWER HEROES : Only 5-year-old at the start of this competition, this son of Ludo de Castelle rubbed shoulders with the best of his promotion, under the saddle. However, he also has references to make to the sulky. Fourth in the Prix Robert Auvray (Gr.II), in April, and recent 3rd in Toulouse, behind the previous nominee, he will be aiming for a place.
2 FANTASIA OF LIGNY : She recommends 20 podiums, including thirteen victories, in 43 races run. That is more than 46% success among the first three. After a profitable back-to-school race, recently in Montauban, where she performed on the rails, she has the means to make people talk about going to this lot again.
3 FRESNEAUX : He approaches this race with freshness. The proof: He was kept out of competition from November 2021 to June 2022. Encouraging 5th at Vichy, recently, for his comeback, and winner of his last outing on this track in Toulouse, he will be of interest to fans of valid outsiders.
