Breaking his maiden in the G2 Prix Noailles over 1 5/16 mile here Apr. 22, Tableaux returned to win a record seventh edition for the Andre Fabre stable which continues to mop up these middle-distance preps. Having finished fourth behind his talented stable companion Intello (Ger) (Galileo {Ire}) on debut over a mile at this track in September, the chestnut was second over that trip at Saint-Cloud in October before filling third spot on his seasonal bow behind another smart colt in the Niarchos family’s subsequent G2 Prix Greffulhe runner-up Bravodino (Dynaformer) in a conditions event over 1 5/16 mile back there Apr. 3. Keen initially before taking a lead from Park Reel, Tableaux stayed prominent, which paid off as nothing proved able to make up ground in another falsely run race. Prizing a narrow advantage off the long-time leader with 300 meters remaining, he kept finding as that rival rallied against the rail and Ballydoyle’s Festive Cheer threatened wide and, despite being briefly headed again by Park Reel near the line, prevailed in the bobber. Tableaux’s win follows an almost unprecedented purple patch in the Classic trials for his stable, contributing this trophy and that of the Noailles to a tally that now includes the Listed Prix Francois Mathet, G3 Prix la Force and G2 Prix Greffulhe, as well as the Listed Fielden S. win overseas for yesterday’s G1 Poule d’Essai des Poulains third Intello (Ger) (Galileo {Ire}).
