Prix ​​​​​​​​​​​de la Ville aux Quatre Ports (Unpublished): Love also proved the most difficult

Races / 24.07.2022

Dieppe, Sunday

Suggested by l2/1, it’s love too (Ectot) is not the most expected betting competitor. And yet, the representative of Emmanuel Boutin, Chauvigny Global Equine Sasu, Édouard Monfort and David Ben Ghouzi managed to repel the offensive of the great favorite until the end, Kubrick (Withdraw)! And according to the words of his trainer, Édouard Monfort, Love Too should show a good level this fall…

That was hard!

In the line of the first calves, the future winner waits in the second curtain behind one of the leaders, captain (Al Wukair). Moved along the outside rail at the start of the last stretch by his jockey, Théo Bachelot, Love Too definitely won the race by taking this option! Threatened at the end of Kubrick’s course, Édouard Monfort’s ass is finally able to prevent the attack of his contemporary. He won by half a length. A bit caught up in the course, Kubrick was ranked second. Staying in the middle of the track instead, Almirgab (Starspangledbanner) finished third, four and a half lengths.

A payment tactic by Théo Bachelot

Starting victoriously, Love Too offered a twelfth victory in July in the stable of Édouard Monfort, who is currently going through a good period of form! Reached by phone, he told us: He is a colt that we have loved in the stable since he arrived there. Basically, I had the idea to start him over 1,600m at La Teste-de-Buch, but as the races are staggered, I didn’t want to impose a long trip on a newbie. He always shows good dispositions, but you always have to wait to see them perform on the track…! In any case, in a straight line, Love Too appears in a serious way. If all goes well, he should finish at a good level, going heavy, this fall…” As he dismounted, the winning rider, Théo Bachelot, added: “Before the shot, I had no intention of putting it so close to the head. But in the end I quickly made the decision to change behind the leaders. Then, being closer to the course, it allowed me to take the outside rail more easily! I think Love Too’s answer is good. I established this tactic before the race because I went to judge the state of the track when I arrived at the racecourse. The entourage is quite confident, even if the purpose is to teach him his work. In the end, the donkey showed a lot of ease and resistance. It is promising. »

grandson of Campanillas
