At Pau on December 27th, MAINVILLIERS was 4th in a hurdle race for 4 year-olds over 3500m (2 miles and 1 ½ furlong).
Ridden by Stéphane Paillard, he started off the pace, came closer in the far straight and finished well. He was beaten by more experienced horses.
We are satisfied with this race because previously, MAINVILLIERS had a tendency to get stressed before the race but now he is far more relaxed and seems to have understood what we expected from him.
The objective of this good horse for 2020 will be Auteuil.
