The Gr. III monte Prix Indienne (purse 80,000€, 2200 meters, European eligibles) went to 1.12.6kr timed and 12/1 odds Upset Face (5m Joke Face-Iona LB) with jockey Yoann Lebourgeois up.

The upcoming Speed Race (Prix de France, Gr. I, 400,000€ purse, 2100 meters autostart) had 26 initial entrants. The final draw will be Thursday (and is likely to include those listed below) and it should be quite a race, irrespective of the final field makeup.

Last year, Davidson du Pont nipped Face Time Bourbon for the victory in 1.11.1kr, followed by Delia du Pommereux, Bahia Quesnot, Vitruvio, Bold Eagle and Billie de Montfort. The all time race time for the Prix de France is 1.09.8kr established by Kool du Vaux in 2007.
