Roxane Griff (10f Tenor de Baune-Julia  Mesloise), at 2.6/1 odds, with jubilant Eric Raffin in the irons for Ecurie Griff and conditioner Sebastian Guarato, made a powerful move around the final bend from third over in the outer flow and surged to the front in winning the €700,000 Prix de Cornulier (monte) at Vincennes, France. They held off the favorite 1.8/1 Tiego d’Etang (8m Chaillot-Harolena) and Charles J.

Gros Bios-based Dutchman Ron Kuiper looks to have a rising monte star in his stable in A Nous Deux who heads the field in the 120,000 euro Group two Prix Rene Palyart at Vincennes tonight. The mare is owned by legendary French breeder Jean Pierre Dubois and is one of two in the race by Goetmals Wood. The well-travelled Kuiper was introduced to the Fabulous Gros Bois training centre when a stable lad for Stefan Hultman, the trainer for the powerful Travkompianet Stall AB, when they would rent boxes of Pierre Vercruysse in the early 2000s. Now established in France on his own account, Hultman's stable star Maharajah is still a regular winter visitor to Kuiper's training barn as Hultman and Kuiper maintain a close relationship. A Nous Deux is coming off a last start fourth in the Prix Beaumanoir a 4-5YOs event at Vincennes, after beating her own age group in the last two montes that have been contested for the A-generation, the Prix Louis le Bourg and Prix de Pardieu. These were her first two attempts at group racing, and she will be once again partnered with top rider Nathalie Henry, and they are at short odds to go three from three. His likely toughest opposition comes from ex-pat Swede's Ake Kristoffersson's Airport, a Love You stallion from the powerful Ecurie des Charmes. Airport, was a close second in the Prix Louis le Bourg after leading for most of the journey and then ran down the field under harness in the Prix Phaeton, his first attempt at group racing in the bike. Eric Raffin will be up for the stallion's second group race under saddle, who looks bred for the part. Airport is from the same family as top monte specialist Quarry Bay, a runner-up in the Prix de Cornulier. Laurent Claude Abrivard is represented by the well supported Agrippine a mare by Hasting who will be ridden by Alexandre Abrivard. She was a runner up in the group one monte, Prix de Vincennes but has galloped in her last two monte races and was a distant ninth last start in the Prix Phaeton under harness. Pierre Coignard lines up group two Prix Camille de Wazierres winner Al Capone Jet a son of Jag de Bellouet who will be ridden by Matthieu Abrivard. He has galloped both times since his prestigious group two win in January. Asana Trembladaise, a well performed daughter of Kuadro Wild steps out with trainer Anthony Dollion in the saddle. A runner up in the group one Saint-Leger Des Trotteurs last year, she had two group two monte wins in a row at the start of the winter meeting, but has been unplaced in three starts since the start of the year. Thierry Duvaldestin has entered Aquarelle de Fael a daughter of Look de Star who, has a group two placing under saddle, and will be ridden by Franck Nivard.
