Considering the style with which he won on October 11 in Reims, Domingo de Lou should have no trouble doubling the stake on the occasion of the Prix de Pomarez (race D – € 42,000 – 2,875 meters – male 6, 7 and 8 years old) this Monday, October 19 on the Soisy plateau.
After two quintés + dedicated to obstacles, the riders will have to work on a traditional trotting event, the Prix de Pomarez, for the first event of the week. Sixteen competitors will evolve on the course of 2,875 meters, a flat profile where the long final straight line allows the waiters to come back. Nine horses will have the chance to start from the near post, including our favorite Domingo de Lou (5 – Alexandre Abrivard). After having left regrets on two occasions, the resident of Laurent-Claude Abrivard set the record straight by winning with authority in Reims. It starts at Enghien, but it has good left rope references as well as on flat tracks. What does his coach think? : ” He started the season clearly behind in gains, after experiencing leg problems. He has won nine times this year and still has a bit of a margin. He faces a favorable engagement at the first level. It will not be easy for the horses at the far post to give him back the distance. Barring an incident, he should still take an active part at the finish. »
Elected by Dompierre (12 – David Thomain) ended up in a very nice action, after being driven to small onions, in the Quercus II Prize – Vans Barbot Prize, end of September, in Marseille-Borély. Preserved all summer, his third attempt after returning to school allowed him to regain success. His entourage therefore took the opportunity to align him again in the Paris region. On its momentum, it is unavoidable. Its developer David Haon told us about it: “ He suffered from one foot and had lost some flexibility this summer. He is on the rise and has won well at Borély. I focused part of the year on the meeting. He will then have better commitments than returning the distance here. That said, it is a wait-and-see. It will take a bit of success, but it can aim for a good check. It will have resin behind and two aluminum in front. »
Emiliano Zapata (6 – Sébastien Ernault) He now has two courses in his legs and will be without his hind legs for the occasion, which heralds a great performance, especially since he has never known defeat at this racetrack, in two attempts. Duc d’Or (8 – Loïc Guinoiseau), September 26th could have done even better than fifth if he had managed his departure. Ideally engaged, this student of Christine Delamare will be keen to set the record straight. Diamond of Sam (1 – Julien Raffestin), in its category and already seen to its advantage on this racetrack, can do well. The metronome Cocaan de Guégué (4 – Gabriele Gelormini), who has just defended himself well among amateurs, can aim higher, at least for a place.
Clovis Montaval (13 – Franck Nivard) is much better than his incomprehensible attempt in Cabourg, recorded on October 10 and must be redeemed, because he has the size of the lot in attendance. For a surprise, pay attention to Cectar (9 – Matthieu Abrivard), well located and four feet unshod.
