Jean-Claude Rouget had a big smile on his face when Olemedo, last year’s Poule d’Essai des Poulains winner, was just caught in the Group 2 Prix du Muguet. The last season had not been easy for the Pau-based trainer, as the yard was still recovering from the virus that had affected a lot of his horses in 2017, but the start of the 2019 season is definitely looking rosy and Olmedo seems to getting back to his best.

Always very open about his horses, he did not hide that he has received 45 two-year-olds less than the previous year, but at the same time, he still has plenty of horses to keep him busy. He might not lead the trainers’ table in terms of prize-money won, but he is certainly leading it in terms of victories. In fact, his horses have already won 53 times and he is now hoping for classic glory.

Fillies like Etoile and Cartiem who could both run in the Prix de Diane, or Commes, a daughter of Le Havre, who is going to line up at the start of the Poule d’Essai des Pouliches, all give him reason to be optimistic for the classic season.

Here, Jean-Claude Rouget gives Liz Price of attheraces.com the lowdown on the pick of his string.
