Tonight's Quinte+ Prix de Parisien at Paris-Vincennes went to 12/1 outsider Ulster Perrine with J-M Bazire up.

The six year-old son of Tenor de Baune scored over 2850 meters in 1.13.6kr to defeat 35/1 longshot Rocanella teamed by Mathieu Abrivard. The outsider dominated result set off a top-five exact order payoff of 213,480e for a £2 wager. Tabrix du Theillet ended third at 14/1. 15 starters contested this event for a purse of £47,000. The Quinte+ jackpot continues to rise and was £6.75 million tonight.

J-M Bazire also took the co-featured Prix Cephens with his trainee Upsos de Guez.

The six-year-old son of Hulk des Champs scored as even-money favorite in 1.13.8kr over 2850 meters for his eighth career victory. The winner secured first prize of 45% of the £50,000 purse. Berry's Boy, an invader from Holland, ended second for reinsman Franck Ouvrie and trainer Jan F. Van Dooyeweerd as that one handled a 25 meters handicap. Uvaro Jet was third for Bertrand LeBeller.

At Marseille-Borely veteran Jean-Pierre Dubois drove the winner and owns that one plus the second place horse in the Prix Cancanniere for three-year olds. The £22,000 event over 2400 meters went to the filly Be Mine Tonight in 1.16.9kr, the second career win for the daughter of Quatre Juillet that was bred by Ecurie D and is trained by Patrick Chevrier.

She traveled an extra 25 meters as 1.4/1 favorite to handle stablemate Bently de Raconis was second with Nicholas Ensch driving the son of Repeat Love.

Also at Marseille-Borely, Italy's New Way took the Prix de L'Isle Surla Sorgue for £22,000 over 3000 meters distance handicap. 16 starters battled in this one. New Way, a seven year-old gelded son of Uronometro, was reined by Christophe Martens and earned his 15th lifetime win, now for earnings of £131,343. He won despite a 25 meter handicap and 5.5/1 odds
