They will meet again in the Pépinvast. Guillaume Macaire, trainer of the two first horses of the Prix d’Indy 2018, said: “They both gained strength over the winter. Once it is one in front and the other time it is the other… it changes! Tunis’ jockey could ride him in a better way. In the Prix Cambacérès (Gr1), he could have beaten Master Dino, but took the advantage too early. Tunis is horse that slows down once in front. They should both take part in the Prix de Pépinvast (Gr3), on the 7th April.”
Maybe the steeple-chase… before going back to stud. Tunis is rare among the jumpers, not a gelding and a double Group winner in Auteuil. We know the success of winning stallions over the jumps, more particularly the ones who proved themselves iin Auteuil. The verdict of the two first editions of the Cheltenham Gold Cup, won by Native River (by the Group winner in Auteuil Indian River) and Sizing John (by Midnight Legend, double Gr2 winner over hurdled in Great-Britain) reinforces the quality of the rare stallions who race over jumps. Guillaume Macaire actually said: “In the near future, it is not impossible that Tunis will go on a steeple. A success in this sport would be a plus for his pedigree as a future stallion.”
A good start fot Spinozzar at Auteuil. Spinozzar completely leaned on his left when jumping the second-last fence, but he came bac well to steal the third place from Pesk Ebrel. Georges Filleul, co-owner of Spinozzar, told us: “It was the horse’ first time running at Auteuil and Pesk Ebrel made him nervous in the race. Moreover, he is a left-hand runner and completely went to that side. But he finished well. His first steps at Auteuil are convincing.”
