Race Preview

Race 1 – PRIX HENRI MAILLARD – 2300m CL2. Purse EUR €22,000.
1. WAKABURN – Resumed last start with a good Listed fourth over 2400m at Vichy. Nicely placed.
2. SUN TRACKER – Progressive three-year-old colt who broke through for his maiden win last start over 2600m at Chatillon-Chalaronne. Sure to be prominent again.
3. KER STORMY – Last start finished 7 lengths away in sixth over 2650m at Chateaubriant. This looks a tough assignment.
4. ANOBE – Last start fell just short of victory when narrowly beaten into second at Le Lion-D’angers as favourite. Rates highly.
5. SNOW TEMPEST – Fifth last start at Chateaubriant over 1950m, 3.5 lengths from the winner. Place chance.
6. PLECTROPHANE BLEU – Won on debut at Orleans before finishing sixth last start over 2500m at Saint Cloud. Bit more needed.
7. BLUSHING BRIDE – Broke through for her maiden win last start over 2700m at Orleans. This is tougher.
8. MONKEYSEEMONKEYDO – Fair effort last start when fourth beaten 5 lengths at Le Lion-D’angers over 2000m. Each-way.

Summary: WAKABURN (1) sets a clear standard on the ratings and can return to winning ways following a good 0.5L fourth in the 2400m Listed Prix Frederic de Lagrange at Vichy. The ultra-consistent ANOBE (4) continues to run well in Class One and Two conditions races. Obvious appeal. SUN TRACKER (2) was always prominent when snugly winning a Class Three at Chatillon-Chalaronne. Interesting for a top yard. MONKEYSEEMONKEYDO (8) completes the shortlist.


1. BRAMANTE – Last start finished a 30 length tenth over 2800m at Compiegne. Fully tested again.
2. BOROVSK – Last appeared when he finished third over 2100m at Argentan on July 4. Noted.
3. IMPERIOUS MAN – First-up following a break of eight months. Needs to have come a long way since being beaten 12 lengths over 1600m at Chantilly All Weather on debut. Others preferred.
4. FIORAVENTI – Showed ability in four outings to date. Latest outing he finished ninth over 1700m at Pornichet on February 21. Turf debut.
5. KIND OF MAGIC SOUL – Finished seventh over 2400m at Clairefontaine on July 15. More needed.
6. BABY GEORGE – Last appeared three months ago when he finished 37 lengths from the winner in seventh over 3000m at Auteuil. Opposed back on the flat.
7. PARURE DES SABLES – Finished fourth on debut over 1900m at Chantilly All Weather on March 8. Leading chance.
8. GOT BLOOM – Made her debut over 2400m at Clairefontaine when finishing a good sixth. Key player.
9. LANESEND – Moderate debut when 10 lengths back in ninth over 1600m at Clairefontaine. Better for that run but others look better placed.
10. ANDROS GIRL – Nice run on debut then failed to threaten when seventh over 2000m at Le Lion-D’angers. Chance with some natural improvement likely.
11. JARIKA – Whitecliffsofdover filly from Carisha on debut. Can give a bold sight.
12. AMBRE NOIR – Filly by Caravaggio from Kiss Me Not on debut. Market check.
13. LISSANDRIA – Siyouni filly from Alessandria on debut. Worth watching for a market push.

Summary: PARURE DES SABLES (7) made a pleasing debut when fourth in a 1900m newcomers race at Chantilly AW in March. Notable claims with improvement on the cards. GOT BLOOM (8) shaped nicely when sixth on debut at Clairefontaine and should be firmly involved. ANDROS GIRL (10) would hold claims if replicating a decent debut fourth at Chantilly AW while Siyouni newcomer LISSANDRIA (13) is in need of a market check.


Race 3 – PRIX DE TOUR-EN-BESSIN – 1400m MDN. Purse EUR €27,000.
1. CABRILLO – Fair 5.25L fourth in a 1300m newcomers race at Saint-Cloud on debut. Of note for a top yard.

3. NOLITO – Close up 1.25L third in a 1400m newcomers race at Chantilly three weeks ago. Top chance.
4. SHAENJET – Fourth when beaten 3.75L in a 1200m Class Two event at La Teste a month ago. Notable contender.
5. BEAUTIFUL SKY – Faded when debuting with a 6.25L seventh in a 1500m newcomers race at Saint-Cloud five weeks ago. Others preferred.
6. BAY D’ARGENT – Unraced New Bay colt. Likely to find a few too good on debut.

Summary: GRAND FETARD (2) is taken to go one better than when debuting with a 4.5L second in a 1300m newcomers contest at Saint-Cloud. NOLITO (3) registered a 1.25L third over 1400m at Chantilly first up. Expected to challenge for the win. SHAENJET (4) enters calculations on the back of a 3.75L fourth over 1200m at La Teste. CABRILLO (1) came home 5.25L fourth in the previously mentioned Saint-Cloud race on debut. Consider.


Race 4 – PRIX DE LA BLIZIERE – 2900m . Purse EUR €11,500.
1. HALTE EN MER – Latest effort a fourth over 3000m at Dieppe. Noted.
2. HAZY DAY – Returns from a 111-day break. Anticipating another solid effort following a fair second at Loudeac.
3. HASKALA – Returned from a layoff last start and was beaten 7 lengths into fourth over 3200m at Erbray. Fitter and rates highly.

6. HE LA VOILA – Resuming from a spell of four-and-a-half months. Last raced when pulled-up over 4200m at Strasbourg. Opposed.
7. IPALOMA DU MAINE – Must improve since being beaten 52 lengths over 3700m at Sable-Sur-Sarthe on her only start. Hard to enthuse.
8. IF I PLAY – Well held in fifth over 3100m at Corlay seven weeks ago. Might need more time.
9. ISY STONE – Fair fourth over 2500m at Molieres latest. Improving with racing and can sneak a place.

Summary: Although beaten 11L when runner-up at Loudéac in April HAZY DAY (2) shaped better than the bare result and could go one place better for a stable in decent form. HASKALA (3) finished a fair fourth at Erbray last outing. Can go well down in trip. ILOUETTE MOME (4) hasn’t been seen for nearly a year but is interesting having finished third behind a subsequent scorer at Saint-Jean-de-Monts. IVRESSE LADY (5) is considered.


Race 5 – PRIX DE CREVECOEUR – 1500m UNR. Purse EUR €27,000.
1. RAJAPOUR – Unraced Almanzor colt. Top chance for leading connections.
2. GIPSY CHIEF – Unraced Siyouni colt. Notable runner on debut.
3. KEAHENGE BERE – Unraced Seahenge colt. Yard can ready one first up.
4. MAKE ME KING – Supplemented Dark Angel newcomer. Strong claims for a top stable.

6. ROYAL SHAKE – Unraced Kingman colt. One to note.
7. JELIEL – Unraced Pedro The Great colt. Best watched.

Summary: An intriguing newcomers race with the market likely to provide a good guide as to expectations. RAJAPOUR (1) is selected to deliver a victory for a top yard who can ready a newcomer. MAKE ME KING (4) gets a chance to shine on debut for a top Chantilly handler. Siyouni colt GIPSY CHIEF (2) warrants close consideration first up. Kingman colt ROYAL SHAKE (6) is another with claims.


Race 6 – PRIX DU SUD MAYENNE – 2900m MDN. Purse EUR €11,000.
1. MARS ATTACK – Held over 3000m at Le Lion-D’angers on debut. Opposed.

3. MY GOOD BOY – Held eighth over 3000m at Le Lion-D’angers on debut. May need more time.
4. TICATAN DUCORMIER – Fair fifth over 2300m at Corlay first time out. May be worth following.
5. MAYAAL – Tailed off over 3000m at Dieppe on June 7. Worth another chance given debut effort.

9. JOLLY GOLD – Showed decent improvement on her second career start finishing runner-up over 2300m at Corlay. Improver who is worth including.

Summary: CAF’CONC (6) has finished third on both runs to date including when making the running over 2900m at Durtal. Top chance to get off the mark. Newcomer SHARANN (10) could provide the main danger with a nice pedigree. JOLLY GOLD (9) displayed improvement on her second career start when finishing runner-up over 2300m at Corlay. One to note. MAYAAL (5) would be of interest on his debut effort at Saint-Cloud in May.


Race 7 – PRIX DES COLLECTIVITES LOCALES – 1900m HCP CL2. Purse EUR €50,000.
1. KHOCHENKO – Close up 0.75L fourth over 2000m at Longchamp. Switch to the AW is no issue.

8. BAZOQUES – Held 3.5L seventh over 2100m at Chantilly three weeks ago. Needs to put that effort behind her.

16. WOW – Fifth when beaten 2.25L in an 1800m conditions race at Clairefontaine. Improvement required.

Summary: MEXICAN DREAM (15) looks capable of recording back-to-back victories following a success over 1850m at Longchamp. BAIKAL (5) is expected to deliver a big effort on the back of a 0.75L triumph over 1800m at La Teste. PADRON (2) is shortlisted having finished 5.25L fifth in a conditions race over 2000m at Pont-de-Vivaux. BEAUTIFUL ASPEN (11) is a threat following a head second in an 1850m handicap at Longchamp. THE LAUREATE (7) came home 4L third in a 2100m conditions event at Longchamp. Dangerous given his good AW record.


Race 8 – PRIX DU CHATEAU – 2900m . Purse EUR €16,500.
1. HEROS DE LA COUR – On the back of a placing at Nantes lined up in a G3 last time and finished 13 lengths from the winner in tenth at Vichy over 2400m. Chance down in grade.

5. IODA – Finished third over 2600m at Vichy on May 29. Worth including.
6. IGOR KERGADOR – Held sixth in a hurdle over 3450m at Les Sables-D’olonne. Others preferred.
7. INSOLITE KANDIDATE – Did little on debut when beaten 10 lengths into sixth over 2450m at Cluny. Others look better prospects.
8. IGRISCO – Unraced gelding by Gris De Gris out of Baresca Hana. Favouring others.

Summary: IMPERIAL CROSS (4) had a subsequent scorer behind when winning by 2L over 2250m at Niort. Could take this slight class rise in his stride for a trainer that excels in this sphere. HEROS DE LA COUR (1) and HYWELL (2) finished ninth and tenth in the G3 Prix Haras de Toury over 2400m at Vichy and should be involved back at this suitable standard. The lightly-raced IODA (5) holds place claims.

1. ARDENT – Unraced Frankel filly. Leading contender for top connections.

11. KELINA – Unraced Frankel filly. Of note for top owners.
12. MONTJICA – Unraced Zoustar filly. Notable runner.

Summary: A hot looking race on paper can go the way of Frankel filly ARDENT (1) who is a full-sister to last years useful juvenile Raclette. ASHIYA (2) rates a big threat on her first start for top connections. Sea The Stars filly CALISTOGA (5) warrants close consideration on her first outing for powerful connections. KELINA (11) is a half-sister to a dual winner in Ansilia. Consider for the win.

1. HEATHERWOOD – Good fourth over 1100m at Saint Malo. Leading player now handicapping.

9. CRYPTOQUEEN – Latest effort a 11th over 1400m at Mont-De-Marsan when beaten 11 lengths. Happy to overlook.

Summary: HEATHERWOOD (1) has found the frame in three of his six outings to date and showed up well when fourth in a 1100m maiden at Saint-Malo latest. Leading claims upped in trip on handicap debut. CAVIAR D’ORIENT (2) produced a solid fourth off this mark when running in a 1800m Saint-Malo handicap last outing. Firmly involved. BELTISTA (7) goes handicapping for the first time following a fair second at La Gacilly. Cheekpieces could eke out enough improvement for LA BAROCHE (8) to sneak into the frame.


Race 11 – PRIX DE FALAISE – 1400m MDN. Purse EUR €27,000.
1. JANARA – Faded when 11L sixth in a 1400m newcomers race at Chantilly. Improvement required.
