Auteuil 20th May

We have four runners in the Grade 1 Grande Course de Haies D’Auteuil Hurdle (French Champion Hurdle) over 3m 1f. Paul rides Klassical Dream who was second in this race last year. We think he has every chance of running as well if not better this time round. He will be suited by the track and ground. Nico de Boinville comes over from England to partner Asterion Forlonge who has run three solid races since returning from a break. He has a real chance of getting a major share of the prize money. Haut En Couleurs (Johnny Charron) is a course winner but has a lot to make up on official ratings. His pedigree suggests he will stay this trip and we will be very pleased if he can finish in the first half dozen. Kilcruit (Lucas Zuliani) reverts to hurdles after a very impressive win over fences at Punchestown. These hurdles and the ground and trip will suit. It would be terrific if he finishes in the first four or five.

Instit (Paul) goes for the Listed Prix d’Arles Hurdle over 2m 2f. She was fourth in this race last year and has improved immensely this season. She could be good value on the French Pari Mutuel.
