Twenty one trotteurs remain engaged for Sunday’s Gr. I International Grand Prix de France at Paris-Vincennes.

The final field, to be determined Thursday, will battle over 2100 meters autostart for a purse of €400,000.

Despite Bold Eagle’s sharp score in the Prix d’Amerique, many challengers remain including Timoko, Oasis Bi, Bird Parker, Anna Max, Trebol and Lionel.

The pacesetter in last Sunday’s monte Prix d’Ile-de-France, Vaillant Cash, is in the field.

The rolling start is likely to produce a fast pace and winning time. The cinders are fast as shown by the 1.10.6kr victory by Scarlet Turgot last weekend in the monte classic.

Look for a new challenger that might benefit from the shorter distance and mobile start plus the race could showcase just how strong Bold Eagle is.

The 2015 edition saw Timoko vs Texas Charm with Timoko just up on the line for a close victory clocked in 1.11.4kr. Video below.
