Victor Ferm recorded his second win in nine starts in France and now has career earnings of 182,788€. 8.7/1 odds Broadwell (5m Conway Hall- Boria) took second with Gabriele Gelormini up for trainer Erwin Bot and owner Ecurie Gerrits Recycling BV. 1.6/1 favorite Alcoy (5m Ready Cash-Divann) took third for pilot Christophe Martens, trainer Victor Martens and Ceke Farm BVBA of Belgium.
At Caen a group of lightly raced three year olds contested the Prix de Ianville (purse 18,000€, 2200 meters autostart, 12 starters). The 9/10 favorite Gold Eagle (3m Bold Eagle-No Limit Jet) scored timed in 1.15.5kr with Eric Raffin aboard.
