Quinté+ on Saturday at Vincennes with a Group II level harness race, over 2,700 meters on a large track, for 5-year-old mares who have earned at least €54,000. Presented by Jean-Michel Bazire, HUWAGA (our photo) is a serious contender for victory.
10 HUWAGA : Fifth in a Group I on January 30 over 2700 meters of track and fifth in a Group III, behind Havana, Hokkaido Jiel, prostitute berry, February 24 on a 2850 meter long track, this daughter of Ready Cash has a very good theoretical chance in this Group II. The two recent releases of her; April 9 at Vincennes and March 15 served as good preparation for this Saturday’s goal.
15 HANNA DES MOLLES : Winner of the Critérium des 3 Ans and second in the 4 Ans, this daughter of Village Mystic also has two wins at the Group II level and one at the Group III level. She did not set March 26 for her return, after more than four months of absence, she should run-up this time. She will be deferree of the 4 this Saturday. Although she still lacks competition, she deserves credit given her class.
5 HAPPY VALLEY : After six successes in a row, including five at Vincennes, this daughter of Royal Dream finished second in a 2,850 meter B race on the big track on March 26 after just over a month’s absence. It will certainly be very pointy for this Group II. A mare endowed with great potential, capable of finishing very quickly, is fundamental in this Quinté+.
12 HELIADE DU GOUTIER : She is a mare of great quality, possessing a success in Group II at Vincennes. In her last start, on December 12 in a Group II 2700-meter lap, she finished fourth behind Huwaga. She is returning to this Group II, but her trainer stated that she had worked well for this race. Given the opposition, it would be risky not to retain this graceful mare.
9 HAZIELLA OF LOVE : After several failures, she had returned to form on February 22 over 2100 meters on a big track by finishing third in a B race. Featured barefoot, she can take a place with a favorable course of the race.
3 HAIDA SAUTONNE : Has won five times in his last ten starts. Having gradually climbed the ladder, his last two victories were won at Vincennes in C races. It is proof at this level. But his means are obvious and he will run barefoot from 4.
8 HELP ME WIN : You do all your shopping with good references at Vincennes. He has just shown his form by winning a D race on April 2 at Laval. Here you can target a small spot.
7 HALICIA BEAUTIFUL : During his last seven starts, he hasn’t finished higher than fourth. As he goes up the category, a fourth or fifth place is quite possible in case of failure.
In case of no start : eleven hallix
