Quinté+ starters this Saturday September 3rd in Vincennes
PARIS-VINCENNES – 2700 METERS – DOWN: 3:15 PM
The forces that exist
Having never been disqualified since the start of his career, HOHNECK (14) has an outstanding record. Fifth in the last edition of the Prix d’Amérique, he proved on several occasions that he is the boss of his promotion. Although he is particularly impressive on speed courses, this representative of Philippe Allaire it will be difficult to wait.
Second and third in the Prix Louis Jariel (Gr.2), behind our favourites, HAPPY VALLEY (8) and HERAUT D’ARMES (6) could logically run for the podium. HOOKER BERRY (13) has been ahead of HOHNECK (14) on this course and has won a lot of votes, especially since he finished well in the key race, not being stripped behind.
Disappointing since his crowning in the Critérium des 4 Ans, HASTRONAUTE (9) recently emerged in Grenade-sur-Garonne. If it provides the best value, it will obviously give our favorites a hard time. HIP HOP HAUFOR (7) ran better than the raw classification of “qualif 1” shows, especially because he prefers long-term courses.
It’s very hard on the effort, it has the engine needed to collect a medal. HINDEN (3), who always gives his best, as well as HOKKAIDO JIEL (10), who always make a bang, tempt lovers of outsiders.
The prediction of Olivier Pivain
HERALD OF ARMS
HIP HOP HAUFOR
Beginners in detail and the opinion of the pros
1 – HOMONY
Unpredictable at the start of his career, this protégé of Jarmo Niskanen settled over time and can now express its full potential. Comedies during the summer, it strikes a stronger part this season. In addition, it was never convinced in Vincennes, the mounted and the trot. It’s hard.
Jarmo Niskanen, coach:
“Honomymie (1) is a dangerous mare, but she does not lack resources. We will face the elite of her generation this season. This will be a serious test. She will have easier races after that. The Its task is not simple, but it should not be completely prohibited. »
2 – HAMLET DU VIVIER
Author of a good winter meeting, this stable horse went through a bad patch afterwards, but seems to be back to the best level. He liked the big track at Vincennes, but passed a serious test at this level. Other protagonists like him better.
Benoît Robin, coach:
“Hamlet du Vivier (2) recently won well. He is a hardworking horse that I always look up to. We try to the highest level. This race will allow me to find it. If it goes wrong, he will close the races afterwards. This is a real test. »
3 – HINDEN
Renewed since March, this strong horse has increased his bank account by five. Fourth in the first qualifying stage, he seems to be still blocked by some competitors, such as Hohneck (14), Happy Valley (8) or Herald-at-Arms (6). For fourth or fifth place.
Pascal Jean Cordeau, coach:
“Hinden (3) continues to give us satisfaction. He goes up a category at a time, but always responds. He is a fighter! A long journey will serve his interests. Know that he can use all tactics. I’d be surprised if it didn’t end up with the Quinté+. »
4 – HORSY DREAM
Out of the programs for a year, this son of Scipio du Goutier now make up for lost time. He won this course at the start of his career, but will remain in shoes for this qualifying event. In case of failures only.
Pierre Belloche, trainer and driver:
“Horsy Dream (4) was not saved by health concerns, but always good. Everything is fine now. Any tactic can be used. It is clear that he has improved a category, but I believe in him. Abi I can claim a place for him. »
5 – dreaming
Given a terrifying burst of ultimate speed, this student of Mateo Abrivard probably led the most offensive in “qualif 1”. During the first half, he proved that he can compete at this level. Not to be underestimated.
Matthieu Abrivard, trainer and driver:
“Have a Dream (5) was not good last time. He must have run hidden to put his last burst of speed. He is manageable and fit. It can take a place at the end of a good race. »
6 – HERALD OF ARMS
Able to finish as quickly as possible, this horse born in purple left a favorable impression in the Prix Louis Jariel (Gr.2). If the race is fast enough, he can join the fight for the win. First time.
Jean-Michel Bazire, trainer and driver:
“The last outing of Héraut d’Armes (6) was very good. He has qualified for the Criterium. You just have to run it hidden. If he repeats his last outing, he will finish. »
7 – HIP HOP HAUFOR
This tempered steel horse will be better on this course than the 2,175 meters in the Prix Louis Jariel (Gr.2), where he nevertheless finished well. Starting the race from afar, he must make life difficult for his opponents.
Christian Bigeon, trainer and driver:
“I am satisfied with the return of Hip Hop Haufor (7), the distance is too short for him. On Saturday, he returned to his favorite route. It is often overtaken at the start of the course, but it does not lack power. He is in condition. He was in the top five with a smooth run. »
8 – HAPPY VALLEY
Gifted with a final burst of speed that is unusual, this high-class mare never ceases to impress observers. In the Prix Louis Jariel, he made up a lot of ground again Hohneck (14). At the end of a good course, it wins.
“Happy Valley (8) just got noticed at the end of the race. It is not translated from the hind legs, but only lightened from the front legs. Its shape is certain. It will be preserved to take advantage of the awesome burst of ultimate speed. Without incident, it will not come out of the top five. »
9 – HASTRONAUT
This follower of the lead race was a little disappointing after his title at the Critérium des 4 Ans, a year ago. However, he recently committed to Grenade-sur-Garonne and will still be barefoot from behind. Why not?
Yannick Henry, trainer:
“Hastronaute (9) won well in Granada. It’s true, the opposition is on his side, but coming back at 50 meters is not easy at all. I felt it on the high hill in the morning. He had a lot of problems, which explains the his desert crossing. Do not forget that he won the Critérium des 4 Ans at the same time last season. I hope to see him run well. »
10 – HOKKAIDO JIEL
This representative of John Good luck quickly proved wrong in the main race before completing an interesting course. Always unlucky at this level, however there is an “engine” that shines there. If the planets are aligned, it can be surprising.
Jean-Luc Dersoir, trainer:
“Hokkaido Jiel (10) ran last time. It happens to him sometimes. Maybe it’s new. I doubt it, but my horse was good in the morning. We know what he can do, but others can be sharper than him. No one can replace the competition. In his class, he has a way of putting himself. »
11 – LANDRET HUSSARD
Without much freedom, this son of Bird Parker always takes places against the best in its class. That said, he will not take off his shoes to preserve his feet for the summit on September 18. In the second choice.
Benoît Robin, trainer and driver:
“Hussard du Landret (11) simply stopped at the end last time. It’s been six weeks since he raced and I had to go out early. It will be put on top of it. Behind Hohneck (14), it’s very open. It everything can be something of course. »
12 – HANNA DES MOLLES
Winner of the 3-year-old Criterium and second in the 4-year-old, this resident of Laurent-Claude Abrivard unknown recently. It’s clearly competitive on pure value, but where is it? Keeping it or not is a matter of impression.
Alexandre Abrivard, driver:
“Hanna des Molles (12) didn’t run much last time, but we still doubt her. We will continue to run it wisely. She should be in condition. »
13 – HOOKER BERRY
This passionate horse held his game very well in the key race, when it was the second warm-up race and he was barefoot. There is no doubt that it is more dangerous these days.
Jean-Michel Bazire, trainer:
“Hooker Berry (13) is not the happiest last exit, otherwise he would have almost finished. This time, he will be barefoot, in the racing configuration. It is available and follows all the trains. With one have a good trip, it should be over soon and join the finish. »
14 – HOHNECK
The only millionaire in the event, this true champion had an amazing summer, against the “oldies” and against his contemporaries. Although it remains a little sharp in reduced layouts, it is like a spice.
“Hohneck (14) is the undisputed leader of the generation and part of the elite of French trotters. He knows how to do everything and adapts to all distances. It is the logical favorite of the race. »
