Philippe Allaire will have his 20-year-old daughter Elisabeth, a rising star in the monte ranks, on board top filly Bomba as he takes a two-prong approach to the group two Prix Hemine an under saddle event for 3YOs at Vincennes on Saturday.

For Mme Allaire, this is her first official group two event, though she has ridden in several 100,000 euro events and is very experienced despite her youth.

She has had 29 rides this year for 5 victories, her last being at Cherbourg on March 30. Indeed, Mme Allaire had two wins in successive days at the Temple du Trot in mid January.

Her father Philippe Allaire's other entrant, rising star Ready Cash colt Bird Parker will have his top rider Yoann Lebourgeois on board, the usual pilot of Bomba, having ridden her in two three wins in her six career starts to date.

Bird Parker, named after the US Jazz great, has proven a hit at both trotting disciplines having won the group two monte Prix Felicien Gauvreau for 3YO colts at VIncennes on February 28, and was second in the under harness top race for 2YOs last last year, the Prix Emmanuel Margouty (Gr2) and followed that up with the big finale for the crop, the Prix Maurice De Gheest (G2).

He will be favourite in the event which will be ridden over the Vincennes sprint distance of 2175m.

Bomba who is by outstanding sire of ridden horses Goetmals won the fillies monte as the Winter Meeting drew to a close, and has been the dominant filly of this generation under saddle.

She has only faced the colts on one occasion, when she narrowly went down to Baggio du Châtelet in Prix Cholet, in January. She was the only filly in that race, and the other five colts followed her in .

Nicolas Raimbeaux's Baggio du Châtelet has proven a very good horse, convincingly winning the group two Prix Edouard Marcillac (G2) at Vincennes in mid February.

Matthieu Abrivard will be aboard the son of Pierre Comte de Montesson's former champion Niky who stands at Haras de Sassy.

Niky who won among other races, the aforemention Prix Emmanuel Maghouty and Prix Maurice De Gheest, and also the prestigious B race the Prix de Belgique is a millionaire earning son of Viking's Way and therefore a great-grandson of US sire Bonefish,.

Another entrant Brooklyn Bridge ran second to Baggio du Chatelet in the Prix Edouard Marcillac and was also the runner-up to Bird Parker in the Prix Felicien Gauvreau.

The talented son of Quatre Juillet will have the experience of Franck Nivard aboard for trainer Franck Leblanc.
