6-year-olds seem capable of taking most of the Cephens Prize, fifth this Friday night at Vincennes. Our preferences will go in particular towards GALION VOLSIN (photo) and GUELIZwho face a favorable compromise in the first initial step.
11 GALION VOLSIN : Above all, don’t judge him by his recent outing, last Monday, at Pontchâteau, where he evolved on rails and went the distance. Presented here barefoot for this entry of choice on the first level of departure, he returns to Vincennes with solid ambitions.
8 GUELIZ : His 3rd place last month, in Caen, where he overtook our favourite, attests to his good form. Furthermore, he finished 2nd on the Grande Piste de Vincennes at the end of January. Obviously preserved, he would not be surprised by competing for the top places in this field.
13 GHOST : His last five starts have resulted in as many podium finishes. He won notably on horseback, in January, at Vincennes, and then on horseback, on March 14, at Bordeaux. Recent 2nd at La Capelle, he is one of the good chances of this match, despite his performance from distance.
12 GALILEO BEAUTIFUL : He was cheated for a long time by the palm, at the beginning of the month in Laval before adjusting himself near the puck. Although he is not one of the best committed to the second starting level, he has the means to give a good response to the aforementioned precedents. Forced to believe it.
14 LEADERS : If he has not won since October 2020, it is clear that he shows a commendable constant. He also improved his personal time, taking it to 1:11.7, last month. Proof of the good form of him. Presented barefoot, it should logically be repeated here.
7 GELASQUEZ : During his last five outings, he has recorded four podium finishes, including a win, most recently at Gournay-en-Bray. He signed on this occasion the first victory of his career. Even if he has two disqualifications in two starts at Vincennes, he can make things worse.
4 GALLIANO D’EVA : It is true that he only has one victory in more than fifty races. Also, he had never raced at Vincennes before. However, he has held several places of honor since the beginning of the year. Therefore, mistrust is essential.
10 STONE FOREVER : After several unsuccessful starts this winter, he restored his reputation by finishing second last month at Croisé-Laroche before claiming an identical classification two weeks later at Reims. Even if he lacks references to Vincennes, it would be unwise to dismiss him.
