Arrival of the fifth: 5 - 8 - 2 - 4 - 3. Non-starter: 16
What an end to the race by Aalto (n°16)! The student of Henri-François Devin deployed magnificent beats to pocket his first success in this category. A favorable impression confirmed by his jockey Clément Lecoeuvre who takes his eighth event. "He had already shown quality," he said. He is still a bit of a baby but he knows how to accelerate very hard. He has some room for improvement. The competition went smoothly but I was able to prepare my horse for sprinting well and he gave it back to me very well. His coach does not hide his satisfaction either. "I was a little bothered with this rope number, but in the end it was a little above the others," concludes the technician who wins the second fifth of his career.
🏆 Aalto (5) (C. Lecoeuvre / H-F. Devin) makes a last straight of madness and comes to win in the Prix de la Ville de Paris, support of the #Quinté + of the day to #ParisLongchamp
👉 1st race on the grass and 1st victory for this 3-year-old male.

Host of the event, Ends Of The Earth (No. 8) went very far but could not do anything to counter his opponent in the middle of the track. He is ahead of Durango (No. 2), who should soon open his record at this level. Slightly behind, Woodstock City (No. 4) draws a very nice straight line and will certainly be resumed. The favourite, Goguen Spaise (No. 3), completes the good combination of the fifth by beating I'm a Believer (No. 11) by a short neckline.
