Bjorn Goop enjoyed quite a day at Bjerke (wins with Rod Stewart, Timone EK and Crfzado dela Noce earlier on the harness racing card) and none better than with Oslo Grand Prix winner Your Highness (7f Chocolatier-La Belle Lady-Conway Hall) as this Fabrice Souloy trainee rallied late to nail Nuncio (5m Andover Hall-Nicole Isabelle-Lindy Lane) and Orjan Kihlstrom driving for owner/trainer Stefan Melander.

The winning mare, off at 1.7/1 on the PMU network, was clocked in 1.10.5kr for this her seventh straight 2016 victory and it raised career earnings to 8,568,228kr.

Nuncio was off at 2.8/1 on PMU and favored on the other major European networks, was a game second and now has an impressive 31-14-2 slate in 47 lifetime appearances.

2.2/1 (PMU) Un Mec d’Heripre (8m Orlando Vici-I Love You Darling-Buvetier d’Aunou) was third for Franck Nivard and trainer Souloy.

Papagayo E, Support Justice and Lionel were the next three to the line.

The Oslo Grand Prix, a Gr. I UET International event with 1,500,000NoKr to the winner (purse in euros €302,212) was contested over 2100 meters autostart (1-5/16 miles).
