PRESENTATION OF THE CÔTE D’AZUR PRIZE
On this Thursday, January 14, 2021, the Tiercé Quarté Quinté + will take place at the Cagnes sur Mer racecourse. Head south-east to study the first race of Reunion I, namely the excellent Prix de la Côte d ‘Azure. This race under conditions carries the label group III and offers a total endowment of 120,000 euros all the same. This year, sixteen international trotters, aged five to eleven, will look each other in the eye. The course used will be that of 2900 meters and it should be noted that the six richest will start with an initial handicap of twenty-five meters. Now let’s hope to make the right choices during this race which will be competed under a bright sun.
VALZER DI POGGIO (10) gets along well with Nicolas Bazire. Having missed his qualification for America twice in the preparatory stages with JMB, he found Nicolas victoriously recently. Here, on a flat track which will suit him perfectly, he couldn’t dream of a better situation at the near post. Unshod hind legs, if he stays at the trot, he will do so.
ALCOY (14) is an element of high class trained by a Martens family which always knows a great success in this Prix de la Côte d’Azur. Obviously, he must return the distance, which is never easy here. However, showing good form and a good starter, if he quickly places himself close to the leaders, he is not incapable of finishing in second place.
COMTESSE DU CLOS (3) is a formidable sprinter who will find invaluable help in the person of Eric Raffin. The double gold sulky in title will try to give him a course in the economy to the rope. If so, then she can definitely grab a fun third place finish.
