Arrival of the fifth: 16 – 8 – 5 – 4 – 13
We had to play the outsiders! Neither of the two favorites appears on the arrival of the quinté which gave pride of place to neglected horses, even if Anctot (n° 16) won at odds of 11/1. Placed behind the leaders from the start of the 2,000m course in the event race reserved for 3-year-olds at the Saint-Cloud racecourse (Hauts-de-Seine), the latter was shifted mid-straight by Eddy Hardouin and took advantage of Spell On You (n° 8) which seemed to be the winner for a moment. He opened his record by winning his first victory in six outings. His trainer, Sylvain Dehez, signs a sixth success at this level while the jockey now has fifty-three in this category since the start of his career.
At 26/1, Warm Breeze (n° 5) obtains the second runner-up after a remarkable end of race, despite an unfavorable number in the starting stalls (15). Like Great Rotation (n° 4) who finished in fourth place ahead of Snow Tempest (n° 13).
