French Trainer Jerome Reynier Has Cheveley Park Plan For Wootton City

French trainer Jerome Reynier is not afraid to travel his horses and is eyeing an audacious tilt at some of the top 2-year-old prizes for fillies in Britain with the progressive Wootton City (Fr) (Wootton Bassett {GB}). But first, Wootton City will line out in the G3 Prix de Cabourg at Deauville on Tuesday before Reynier can allow himself to dream about races like the G2 Lowther S. at York and the G1 Cheveley Park S. at Newmarket, both of which have been pencilled into the filly's diary.  "Wootton City...

Skalleti Swoops late For Harcourt Win

Jean-Claude Seroul's ultra-consistent 7-year-old Skalleti (Fr) (Kendargent {Fr}) suffered just one reversal in six group-race starts last year and posted seasonal highs in ParisLongchamp's G1 Prix d'Ispahan and Munich's G1 Grosser Dallmayr-Preis. The globetrotting grey also saluted in 2021's G2 Prix d'Harcourt and was back at the Bois de Boulogne venue to successfully defend his title in Sunday's latest edition after failing to achieve a similar feat when third in Saint-Cloud's G3 Prix Exbury last month. The even-money favourite adopted his usual patient tactics from the outset and found a...

Can Skalleti Do It All Over Again?

Now that Cheltenham's beloved festival has ended, the Flat picks up the thread seamlessly with an old favourite in the mold of some of the best-known jumps campaigners which have enriched this week's action in the Cotswolds. Step forward Skalleti (Fr) (Kendargent {Fr}), Jean-Claude Seroul's veteran consumer of group contests who looks for back-to-back successes and an 11th Pattern race in Saturday's G3 Prix Exbury at Saint-Cloud. A repeat of his exploits when garnering ParisLongchamp's G1 Prix d'Ispahan and Munich's G1 Grosser Dallmayr-Preis last term should be enough if he...

Group 1 Winner Skalleti on Show in Rome

Likeable gelding Skalleti (Fr) (Kendargent {Fr}), a Group 1 winner in France and Germany, continued to pad his admirable record with a second victory in the G2 Premio Roma at Capannelle on Sunday. The grey won his first edition in 2019. Sent off at 6-5, the crowd's pick raced last of all in the bog-like going, as Alastor (Ire) (Helmet {Aus}) cut out the early running. Making up ground down the long straight, Skalleti raced out in the center of the course and was within striking distance with a quarter...

Skalleti to Run Next in Prix Foy

Two-time Group 1 winner Skalleti (Fr) (Kendargent {Fr}), runner-up in last October's G1 QIPCO Champion S. at Ascot, will not compete in Sunday's G2 Grand Prix de Deauville and instead wait for the G2 Prix Foy on Sept. 12, trainer Jerome Reynier revealed on Thursday. The Champion S. is the charismatic grey gelding's end-of-season goal. "He is very good--we're very happy with him," said Reynier. "We've decided not to go to the Grand Prix de Deauville because the ground is too firm, and by the end of the meeting it...

Home Win For France As Footstepsinthesand's Marianafoot Takes The Maurice De Gheest

There were just three of the dozen to contest Sunday's G1 LARC Prix Maurice de Gheest at Deauville trained in France, but despite extremely tough foreign opposition the home team managed a surprise one-two led by Marianafoot (Fr) (Footstepsinthesand {GB}). Prolific at a lower level of late, Jean-Claude Seroul's 6-year-old had captured the seven-furlong G3 Prix du Palais-Royal and G3 Prix de la Porte Maillot on ParisLongchamp's turning track May 30 and July 1 but was equally at home over the straight course here with Mickael Barzalona burying his mount...

Jean-Claude Seroul's highly dependable 6-year-old grey Skalleti (Fr) (Kendargent {Fr}) posted a career best in ParisLongchamp's G1 Prix d'Ispahan when last seen at the end of May and doubled his elite-level tally with an impressive five-length triumph in Sunday's G1 Grosser Dallmayr-Preis - Bayerisches Zuchtrennen over 10 furlongs at Munich. Last term's G1 Champion S. runner-up had also annexed this term's G3 Prix Exbury and G2 Prix d'Harcourt in an unbeaten start to the campaign and was sent postward as the heavily supported 3-10 favourite to continue that trend. Skalleti...
