Derby du languedoc

 

The proven Group performers Salsalavie and Blue Bresil

take on Ticoz and Angelo Minny,  who have

shown great promise without running in the top races. Ticoz is unbeaten since

finishing second to Vision d’Etat at Fontainebleau

last year and is likely to improve on his first start over 2400 metres. He was an

impressive winner at Cagnes early in the year and on his last stzrt had to fight

to beat the fillies Grenadia and Yarastar over 2000 metres in

Marseilles, but they have run well in stakes races since. Angelo Minny has

shown promise on several occasions and wxas second to Indian Daffodil in a good

class race at Longchamp last year. The son of Red Ransom appeared well suited

to 2400 metres

when winning his latest start at Saint

Cloud.

 

Salsalavie has taken on the best throughout his career

and after finishing second to High Rock was a creditable fourth to Prospect

Wells and Ripple in the Greffuhle at Saint

Cloud before finishing out of the first ten in the

Jockey-Club. Blue Bresil was third in both the Noailles and the Hocquart before

also finishing down the field in the Jockey-Club. Hopes And Fears ran well to

be placed in the Derby du Midi while Time To Go has something to find on what

he has shown to date but broke is maiden on his last start at Toulouse.
