Quinté +: Cleangame, the Duke of Quinté + for this Saturday 14 May in Caen?

Quinté + appetizers for this Saturday 14 May 2022

R1 C3


The forces present

True champion, CLEANGAME (14) just showed his class at Châteaubriant by flying over the debates in the GNT stage, when he returned 50 meters. Starting this time from the same spot as his rivals, Jean-Michel Bazire’s gelding is still a horse to beat in this field. While he had beaten our favorite in late March at the Prix du Bois de Vincennes, AMPIA MEDE SM (7) found him on equal footing this time. Given her means, Ganymede’s daughter still deserves a lot of credit with INCREDIBLE (13), reigning champion but who, unlike last year, will remain locked up here. She recently blamed Vincennes when she was secured second place, REBELLA MATTERS (10) will then precede GU D’HERIPRE (12), seeking redemption after her disappointment on 23 April at Enghien in the Prix de l ‘ Atlantic. On the rise, GANGSTER DU WALLON (6) keeps his chance for a place, like FAKIR DU LORAULT (11), recent second in the Low Speed ​​Criterion, and ELVIS DU VALLON (9), fifth in the same test last year.

The starters in detail and the opinion of the professionals


This winter in Vincennes, with a truly commendable consistency, this representative of the Danover team started at a gallop during his last outing in Enghien. Faced with such opposition, his possibilities appear very limited.

Stéphane Provoost, coach:

“Hidalgo des Noés (1) does not have a favorable program at the moment. So let’s run this high run. He will be close but it won’t be ridiculous because he is very good in the morning in training. If the favorites fail, he can win a small spot in this Quinté +. “


Although he had not been seen since last October, this son of Jag de Bellouet could not be dangerous on April 10 for his return to Lisieux. Ferré in this Quinté +, his mission promises to be one of the most delicate. Without us.

Clément Thomain, trainer and pilot:

“Darshan (2) will keep his irons in this very difficult event. I have no favorable commitments for him right now. This race will allow me to keep him in the “bathroom”. We have no ambitions. “


Eclectic, this son of Rodrigo Jet has been fielding chess for several months, under the saddle or on the snag. Absent since March 5 and locked up here, he seems to be grappling with an impossible task. Impasse recommended.

Stéphane Provoost, coach:

“Dollar Derby (3) will be back in competition this Saturday. For its return, you can remove it from your games. “


Never safe from fault, this son of Phlegyas has not recently failed in a Group 3 in Bordeaux (fifth). Barefoot and paired with Éric Raffin, he doesn’t seem out of the picture for a small seat at the end of the combination.

Jeremy Gaston Van Eeckhaute, operator:

“Dollar Soyer (4) finds the momentum right. I am very satisfied with his latest outing in Bordeaux. This time he will be removed from the four and Éric Raffin will put him in his hands. His goal will be at the beginning of June in Vincennes. I expect a good race from him on Saturday, but we are still in the adaptation phase. Considering the quality of the pitch, a fifth or sixth place would already be very satisfying. “


Defective at the start of the Prix de l’Atlantique, this son of The Best Madrik has just suffered the penalties of disqualification at the Critérium de Vitesse de Basse-Normandie. Led by his mentor, the chances of him aren’t obvious.

Pierre-Alain Rynwalt-Boulard, coach and driver:

“Digne et Droit (5) is physically fine but I can’t explain his recent mistakes at the start of the course. I sit in pouting at him to judge his behavior from the “inside”. “


Away from the slopes between September and March, this classic saddle subject now evolves mainly into the snag. Winner at Lyon-Parilly on 7 April, three weeks later he took a good third place in Vincennes. At ease on the right string, he shouldn’t be overlooked.

Alexis CoLlette, driver:

“Gangster du Wallon (6) is on the rise; his third place finish at Vincennes on April 22 did him good. Excellent right foot, find the good level of him and we will play our card to the end. The field is very strong, the podium is closed to us, but I count on him for a place at the end of the Quinté + combination. “


Over the past twelve months, this resident of Fabrice Souloy has recorded thirteen hits. During his penultimate outing, he beat Cleangame (14), while he had a 25m lead. Even if he finds him here au pair, he should still sell his chances of him dearly.

Franck Nivard, driver:

“Ampia Mede Sm (7) is less comfortable on the right but the corners of Caen are wide. You will be vigilant to enter the curves. The opposition is serious with Cleangame (14) in particular on the same level. In front of him it will be hard to win, but his place is on the podium. “


After two good tries here in March and a fourth place finish on 6 April at the Grand Prix Angers Loire Métropole, this son of Ready Cash didn’t like Ecommoy weed on his last try. Faced with such rivals, he is just a mere outsider.

Jean-Loic Claude Dersoir, coach and driver:

“The match was difficult at the third post the other day, on Ecommoy’s grass. Cash du Rib (8) is fine, but in the face of the announced big horses, we have no ambitions. I will therefore leave it closed. A sixth or seventh place would suit me perfectly. “


Fifth in this same event last year, this resident of Charles Cuiller just got the same ranking in the Critérium de Vitesse de Basse-Normandie. On the way to him, he can still claim a spot at the end of the combination.

Charles Cuiller, trainer:

“With his number on the outside, it was a mission impossible for Elvis du Vallon (9) in the Criterium de Vitesse d’Argentan. He was not unworthy and has since proved his good form him in the morning. If there are the best horses in the race, we have a fourth or fifth chance. “


Without a fault at the end of the course, this resident of Jean-Michel Bazire would have ranked second to Ce Bello Romain at the end of April in the Critérium de Vitesse de Basse-Normandie. This time he wise, he can aim for a place.

Nicolas Bazire, son of the coach:

“There is no real explanation for Rebella Matters’ fault (10) in the final meters of the Criterium de Vitesse d’Argentan. Too bad, she would have been, for sure, the second. She is in good physical condition and we are only interviewing her. She is ready to go back to doing good performances. The race promises to be very rhythmic and this should serve her interests. “


Rather discreet this winter in Vincennes, this son of Vaillant Cash is making a comeback and has only found Ce Bello Romain blocking his way to success on 30 April in the Critérium de Vitesse de Basse-Normandie. On his way, he has the means to aim for a place in this Quinté +.

Michael Charuel, trainer:

“Fakir du Lorault (11) has done very well from his second place at the Criterium de Vitesse d’Argentan. He is the best when he turns with his right hand. So I’m optimistic to see him run well. But in the face of this opposition, the podium is difficult to imagine. However, I count on him to do his best and complete Quinté + ‘s good arrival. “


Sick, this resident of Fabrice Souloy could not really defend his chances on 23 April in Enghien in the Prix de l’Atlantique. Judging from his previous two third places in Vincennes, he finds an opportunity to redeem himself, even if he is not confirmed on the right hand.

Journalist’s Note:

“Gu d’Heripré (12) did not prove his worth to Enghien in the Prix de l’Atlantique. According to his driver, the horse was “dirty” after the race, which explains its poor performance. If his coach introduces him again, it means that everything has to go back to normal. The question mark now lies on his suitability for the course. His only run with the rope on the right had in fact ended in disqualification. “


Reigning champion, this son of Timoko has just finished second to Enghien in the Prix de l’Atlantique behind Vivid Wise As, having dominated his rival Cagnes in the Grand Critérium de Vitesse de la Côte d’Azur. Even if shod here, we can still expect a great performance from him.

Anthony Barrier, pilot:

“Amazing (13) is in top form. He was barefoot to win last year but the fact of presenting him his shoes is not prohibitive; he had thus won the Prix de Paris in 2021. It is not easy to imagine beating Cleangame (14), but we can’t wait to be there. “


This champion trained by Jean-Michel Bazire has just shown his class at Châteaubriant by flying over the debates of the GNT stage, while running the 50 meters. Leaping to the post this time over his rivals, he promises to be hard to beat.

Nicolas Bazire, son of the coach:

“Cleangame (14) finds a great voice. This time, it will be in the same place as the others. He has gained in on-the-fly maneuverability and the fact that he starts off on an “expected” step shouldn’t bother him. Everything has gone well for him since his victory in the GNT stage at Châteaubriant. He leaves with confidence. “
