"JEAN-CLAUDE  ROUGET  is a mould-breaker in French racing. For many years it was taken for granted that there were two tiers in the sport in France: the provincials who trained the moderate horses outside Paris, and the elite who trained the classy animals in Chantilly and its environs. Rouget, based at Pau in South West France, began the process of destroying that assumption in 1991 when he broke the record with 178 victories in the season and has been almost as prolific every year since. But the breakthrough into the elite group was delayed until 2009 when the G1 dam broke with a vengeance. In that year he took first and second places in the Poule D'Essai des Pouliches (French 1000 Guineas) with Elusive Wave and Tamazirte, then Le Havre won the Prix du Jockey Club (French Derby) and Stacelita and Tamazirte finished first and second in the Prix de Diane (French Oaks). Rouget was champion trainer and had proved it wasn't necessary to train at Chantilly to hold that title."

DAILY MAIL - AIDAN O'BRIEN
"Aidan O'Brien says the disastrous 2,000 Guineas experience of St Nicholas Abbey in 2010 is behind his reluctance to publicly commit hot favourite Camelot to Saturday's race."Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/racing/article-2136990/Aiden-OBrien-fears-Camelot-2-000-Guineas.html#ixzz1tnGie0zX

SCOTT BURTON talks to Chantilly trainer NICOLAS CLEMENT

"I'm delighted (to have a Guineas horse) I've been training for over 20 years and I've had a few good horses, but we've always taken the French option's."

NICOLAS ON WORKING WITH VINCENT O'BRIEN
and FRANCOIS BOUTIN

"It was a fantastic experience to work at Ballydoyle with Dr O'Brien even though I was very young, 20 or 21. He didn't speak much but you just had to be there to understand. It was a great thing to do even though it wasn't a vintage year (1985) for the stable.
 It was a great set-up and he was a maestro."

"FRANCOIS BOUTIN was my main coach, he was fantastic. I was there for three years and he was the one who pushed me to take out a trainers licence, although I thought I was a bit young. But he said  'come on, you've got the experience now,  you've got to show yourself'. Even though I was only 24 I followed his advice."
