GNT Paris-Turf in Laval: Eire d’Helios but also…
©Scoopdyga – Eire d’Helios enjoys the stretch from Laval
EIRE D’HÉLIOS, regularity incarnate
Coach: F. Harel / Driver: F. Lagadeuc
73 races / 10 wins
14% win rate since debut
Quinté+: 79% success rate in the top 5 when entering a companion race for Quinté+ (19/24).
Rope: All of his achievements have been made on left-hand ropeways.
Hippodrome: 67% success rate in the first 4 in Laval (4/6).
Distance performance: 67% success in the first 3 races where she had to walk 25 meters (since December 2021).
Horse/driver combination: 6 of his 10 victories were won with François Lagadeuc on his sulky.
She seems to be able to increase her capital points significantly here. This is also confirmed by his trainer Franck Harel, who is very proud of his protégé: I know very well that a mare likes here Anna des Molles is fundamentally superior to mine. That doesn’t stop us from being ambitious. How you emphasize with your data Eire from Helios is beyond any doubt. She knows how to finish her course quickly. Will benefit from a good back as always and needs to be followed. If so, it’s pretty much a surefire shot in the top 5. Also, with a tailored route, I believe she can win her stage one day. “Why not Wednesday?
