Head to the Reims racecourse, for the third stage of the Grand National du Trot, the fifth this Wednesday. For once, our choice fell on the two least silver in the race. Namely GIROLAMO Y FRENCH MAN (photo).
1 GIROLAMO : The means are not lacking. He had also won Gr. III at Vincennes, at the age of 4, when he was still under the rule of Sylvain Roger. Since then he took fourth place in the first stage of the GNT, last month in Amiens, before being disqualified in the Grand Prix d’Angers Loire Métropole (Gr.III). Sage, you can make everyone agree.
2 FRENCH : Recommends 24 podiums, half of which are successes, in 64 races. Ten of the twelve victories on his list have also been obtained on tours of the right. To this we must add that he has 1’14”6, the best time of the peloton on this track. What he inclines to distrust.
8 EDY DU POMMEREUX : His last public performance ended in a nice second place in a scheduled fifth, chain right, last month in Lisieux. Instead, for his only start at this track, around this time last year, he would have won a slide without fail in the final corner. Forced to believe it.
14 EIRE OF HELIOS : You no longer have to prove yourself in tournaments like this. The proof: he has two wins and fifteen places in twenty-one races in a row. She also finished third in the first stage of the GNT, last month in Amiens. Gifted with a nice burst of ultimate speed, he’ll try to do just as well here.
16 FREYJA DUPONT : She is without a doubt the most successful of the bunch. This is evidenced in particular by his 3rd place at the GNT Final, behind fair play Y Firello, this winter in Vincennes. Also, he has already won right rope. Even if consistency isn’t one of his main qualities, and despite his performance from distance, he deserves credit.
11 THE HOLY HAUFOR : There is no need to condemn him for his recent disqualification in a fifth at Vincennes, especially since he had previously signed three places, and that in well-composed tests. In pure value, it is one of the great possibilities of the race. The only problem: he has four misses in as many right-handed rope starts.
6 MAGALOU FLOWER : If you are still looking for a first victory in a fifth, you already have two podium finishes in five starts. Even if he stays on a disqualification in Laval, he seems capable of complicating the reports here. Especially since she will be barefoot for this meeting. Distrust.
12 ELISKA BERRIES : This 8-year-old mare is confirmed and well known in tournaments of this type. He will also participate in his fifteenth, counting one victory and two places. After a profitable lap race, at Cordemais, it cannot be neglected. Watch out for his final burst of speed. For lovers of valid outsiders.
