Tiego d’Etang (8m Chaillot - Harolene) was home fourth for trainer/driver Christian Bigeon. Villeroi, Severino and Roxane Griff were disqualified for miscues. The winner, trained at Grobois by Franck Leblanc, also trainer of Anna Mix, won for the 12th time in a career that has not produced earnings of €1,921.060.
