In 2011 at Ascot, Cirrus Des Aigles flourished to be the winner of the Champion Stakes with Christopher
Soumillon aboard. According to his trainer Corine Barande- Barbe, ‘the horse is in great shape and ready
to defend his title on Saturday at Ascot’. His trainer has revealed that Christopher Soumillon would be
riding the horse again as he has been successful on the horse for last month by winning twice.
The designers of this event could not have pictured Barade- Barbe as being amongst its important
supporters but her confidence has become attractive and outstanding. She has managed to win the
most vital race in 2011 and sent away Frankel in the past year. Cirrus Des Aigles will certainly be the
main sparkle of the event for the 3rd
Barande- Barbe from her spot in Chantilly, north of Paris said, “You must always respect the opposition,
but that does not hinder him from winning. He is in great condition, health wise he is in a perfect state

Even now after a series of triumphs they are still suspicions overshadowing his competence. But other
than that the win at Longchamp on Arc weekend was enthusiastic and Barande- Barbe is glee with
Even though he is not getting younger but getting older his strengths simply show that he is still up
his game. However, trainer Barande- Barbe puts it out there that she does not view his losses as a
disappointment but has concrete reasons for them. At Saint-Cloud the first time out he was definitely
not ready to race, and then he became 4th
in weight to three year olds. He became restless as they were waiting for the rain which came after the
race and the conditions were not favorable to him. At Deauville he became second, however as time
went on he became better and better and at Maisons –Laffitte he became near his best.
According to his trainer he is bound to stay in training for as long a he wants. It would be so sad for him
if he does not stay training as this will loosen his stability to be low. The other reason is that he is now
