Godolphin's "Manny Cours" and "Algers", under the supervision of coach Andre Fabre, sing their first victory in the high-ranking races, when they compete, today, in the challenge of the "La Coupe" race, which takes place at the French Longsham Racecourse, which is dedicated to purebred horses "Group 3". » For a distance of 2000 metres.

Manny-Cour, who finished third last March in the Dubai World Cup, will record his third participation this season at the Parisian Longsham track, during which he aspires to add the sixth victory in his racing career, after two attempts last May on the same track. During them, the horse descended from the stallion “Dalia Douro” was satisfied with the sixth place in the “Prix Gannet” race for the horses of “Group 1”, the highest ranked in the world, and followed him in the runner-up position with a “short head” difference in the “Montertoot Listed” race behind the French horse “Lechabar”.

In turn, "Algers" returns to "Longsham" after an unsatisfactory attempt last April, in the "Prime Dacor" race, especially since the son of the stallion "Schmerdel" finished the 2020 season in an advanced way, by scoring a wide victory, last September, in the "Prime Touren Listed" race. Which took place at the French track "Saint-Cloud".

Godolphin’s representatives in the “La Coupe” race face the challenge of five elite horses over a distance of 2000 metres, including the French horse Irisini, owned by Bernard Miller, who is seeking his fourth victory in a row in his five races, the last of which came last May at the Lion Barley track. Six lengths ahead of its closest competitor.

Lisa Jane Gravard of the Godolphin team in France commented on the chances of Manny-Cours and Algers in the "La Coupe" race, saying in a press statement: "Many-Cours appears to be well prepared, and all he needs to rise to a higher level after his strong participation in Dubai last March, Which required him a lot of effort, after which he needed enough time to recover, and restore his physical levels.”

She added: "Algers horse defied expectations in his first participation of this year, and he will be required to restore the brilliance that appeared at the end of last season, especially as he needs at least two participations to gain full fitness."

On the other hand, Godolphin (Cape Cod) is looking to maintain her unbeaten record at the Japanese Sapporo Racecourse, when she returns today to compete at a higher level in the Hakodate Sprint Stakes, which is dedicated to purebred horses "Group 3" for a distance of 1200 metres.

The four-year-old filly, trained by Mizuki Takayanagi, had previously won in September 2019 on the track and the same distance, when she topped most of the stages of the Suzuran Show, which was dedicated to two-year-old horses.
