MEATH rider Cian O’Connor added another placing to his tally at the five-star meeting in Chantilly, France, this morning (Sunday), when partnering Coco 11 to third place in the 1m45 Prix Aire Cantillienne.

Leaving all obstacles standing, the Irishman set a stiff target of 59.97 early in the event, but was eventually overhauled by Lucia Maria Moneta of Italy, who finished second on Bonheur S in 59.60, and then by  winner Timothee Anciaume of France on Padock du Plessis*HN, who proved uncatchable with a time of 59.54.
Yesterday O’Connor had taken another third placing at the venue with his newly acquired Be Gentle.
