Aubrion du Gers (9g Memphis du Rib-J’Arrive du Gers) rallied from a blocked position on the pegs early in the lane to score by half-length in the Gr. III Prix Angers Loire Metropole (purse 55,000€, 3100 meters distance handicap, 18 starters) at Hippodrome Angers.
 
Trainer/owner Jean Michel Bazire teamed the 1.12.8kr timed winner to his 43 rd career harness racing victory in 67 starts, now for 2,222,947€ earned.
 
He overcame a 50 meter handicap and got into striking position early before yielding to Bugsy Malone (8g Ready Cash-Night Captain) and getting blocked.
 
Marie Brigitte Anty bred the great champion that is accepted in the 2019 Elitloppet and today was the 2/5 favorite. The 50 meter handicapped Bugsy Malone, off at 5.4/1 odds, raced gamely to be second for owner/trainer Philippe Allaire and driver Yoann Lebourgeois. 17/1 Beau de Grimoult (8g Pacifique Gede) took third for trainer/driver Franck Anne after a 25 meter penalty.
 
7.1/1 Archibald (9g Meaulnes du Corta) was fourth for Thomas Levesque and fifth went to 25 meter handicapped 33/1 outsider Blues des Landiers (8g Phlegyas) for breeder/owner/trainer/driver Dominique Cheradame.
 
Well-regarded Super Fe was eighth and Django Riff was ninth.
 
 
There was other interesting action this week in Europe. Tuesday at Paris-Vincennes Go Along (3f Ready Cash-Oxano de Chanterne) scored in the Prix Enif (47,000€ purse, 2700 meters, 10 starters) at 1.2/1 odds.

The Philippe Allaire owned and trained filly was timed in 1.16.4kr with Yoann Lebourgeois aboard.
 
On Monday at Argentan three year olds contested the Prix Vesta (purse 21,000€ 2150 meters autostart, 12 starters) and 4/1 Guerande (3f Quaker Jet-Symphonie) scored for Yann Lorin, also the trainer for owner J.M. Lorin. 3.9/1 Gourgandine (3f Bold Eagle-Udine) was second for breeder/owner/driver Jean Pierre Dubois, ahead of the 1.7/1 favorite Genialissime (3g Brillantissime)reined by Tony LeBeller.
 
Later in that program was the Prix Phebus (pure 27,000€, 2875 meters, 18 starters) that saw 6.1/1 Cadet Joyeux (7g Love You-Cadette) score timed in 1.14.6kr for David Thomain. Second was 10/1 Crazy Dream (7f Repeat Love-Daisy Chain) for trainer/driver Yves Boireau.
