Fabre should make it 13 in a row.
The Frenchman has totted up nearly Ff20m (pounds 2m) to date so, should reach his total of last year, which came to Ff23.9m (pounds 2.02m).
So far Fabre has raced only 127 of the 250 members of his string, and no doubt the cough and virus have played their part.
Fabre has had 347 runners, with 73 per cent picking up money and 23 per cent ending up in the winner's enclosure.
Pau-based Jean-Claude Rouget is having an exceptional season. He has the highest total of winners (147) and is lying second to Fabre in the prize-money table, with Ff12.4m (pounds 1.25m).
Rouget has a strike-rate of 25 per cent winners from his 580 runners. He has also picked up four Group races, three with
the Marquesa de Moratella's Star Of Akkar.
Criquette Head's stable has been badly hit by illness, but her horses are beginning to run well again. She has amassed Ff9.88m (pounds 1m) to date and is third in the table.
Then comes Alain de Royer-Dupre, most of whose success can be put down to Sendawar, Daryaba and Dark Moondancer.
Seventh-placed John Hammond will leap up the table if he wins the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe with Montjeu, who currently accounts for 45 per cent of his winnings.
