Race Preview

R1 – PRIX DU CHATEAU DU VAL – 1600m (a1m) – TURF – Claiming – Flat – EUR € 26,000

1. HER CHRISTOPHER – – Four unplaced runs in higher grade races, the latter at Parislongchamp
over 1600m in a handicap on May 26th. Can be involved
2. ROCK THE KASBAH – 5th last time in a Class 1 race at Lyon Parilly on May 8th. Drop in Class
and hold strong claims
3. GENTLEMAN BEAUTY – Two unplaced runs of late, 4th before that at Chantilly on May 2nd
over 1400m in a handicap. Consider
4. PARRHESIA – 5th last time in a Handicap at Parislongchamp on May 26th over 1600m. In the
mix
5. MORALISTE – 2nd last time at Most(CZE) over 2000m on May 26th. Others more likely
6. MALTOCK D’ORGERES – 3rd last time in a claimer at Compiegne on June 7th over 1400m.
Can not be overlooked
7. TREIZIEME – Unplaced on the last two runs, won before that at Chantilly over 1600m in a
handicap on February 29th. Player
8. LOVECAYAN – Two unplaced runs recently, won before that at Pornichet in a maiden over
1700m on March 27th. Ought to be thereabouts
9. FALABELLA – Two unplaced runs, the latter over 1400m in a claimer at Compiegne on June
7th. Looks vulnerable
10. HOPIC – Two unplaced runs, the latter over 1800m in a Class 2 race at Compiegne on May
31st. Drop in class and can make the frame at big odds

Summary: ROCK THE KASBAH (2) has been competing in much stronger races than this claimer.
He was fifth in a Class 1 race last time. If he relaxes he will be far too smart for these. GENTLEMAN
BEAUTY (3) will be trying to find a chink in the selection’s armour and looks like the main threat.
TREIZIEME (7) is also one to consider. He won three runs ago at Chantilly and ought to be on the
premises. PARRHESIA (4) is also no forlorn hope.

SELECTIONS
ROCK THE KASBAH (2) – GENTLEMAN BEAUTY (3) – TREIZIEME (7) – PARRHESIA (4)

R2 – PRIX VERSO II – 1200m (a6f) – TURF – Class 2 Race – Flat – EUR € 28,000

1. UNE PEINTURE – Three unplaced runs of late, the latter in a Class 2 race on June 6th over
1400m. Hard to recommend
2. TOMAKAY – Slightly below par last time on his return from an absence in a Listed race at
Chantilly on June 2nd. Won three in a row last year and can score here
3. ON Y CROIT – Unplaced last time, 3rd before that over 1400m at Deauville in a Class 2 race on
April 10th. Looks vulnerable
4. WILD CITY – 4th two runs ago over 1300m at Chantilly in a maiden race on February 23rd.
Makes no appeal
5. ALSAFI – Newcomer by Ten Sovereigns, the dam ran once. Will likely improve for this debut
run. Monitor the betting for clues
6. PERLI CHOPE – Nice 2nd last time over 1200m in a handicap on May 25th at Saint-Cloud. One
to pay attention too
7. LADY INVINCIBLE – Two unplaced runs of late, won before that over 1400m at Saint-Cloud in
a maiden on October 10th. Can be involved
8. GERBERA – Won last time on her second run at Agen over 1200m on May 9th. Up in class and
others preferred
9. BEST OF LIGHT – Unplaced last time, 3rd before that over 1300m at Deauville on January 19th
in a Class 2 race. One to consider
10. DYPTIQUE – Unplaced last time, 3rd before that in a Class 1 race at Chantilly on May 2nd over
1200m. Player
11. SUNNY ANGEL – 5th last time in a Class 2 race over 1200m at Fontainebleau on March 25th.
Can not be dismissed

Summary: TOMAKAY (2) was well fancied when beaten at Chantilly in a Listed race earlier this
month on his return from an eight-month absence. Useful at two he can bounce back to form and
score from DYPTIQUE (10) who was one place behind in the Chantilly race, having run a solid race
before that when third in a Class 1 race on May 2nd. LADY INVINCIBLE (7) is the each-way must
as she will be sharper for two recent runs. SUNNY ANGEL (11) is also worth considering.

SELECTIONS
TOMAKAY (2) – DYPTIQUE (10) – LADY INVINCIBLE (7) – SUNNY ANGEL (11)

R3 – PRIX DU DOMAINE DES FOSSES – 2100m (a1m1/4) – TURF – Class 4 Divided Handicap – Flat – EUR € 14,000

1. RIVER LILLY – 3rd last time, won before that over 2150m in a Class 4 race at Wissembourg on
May 20th. Key chance
2. SPRING EVE – Three unplaced runs of late, the latter over 1900m in a Class 4 handicap on June
3rd at La Teste. Looks safely held
3. LES EMBRUNS – Has several unplaced runs of late, the latter over 1800m in a Class 4 race on
May 20th. Opposable
4. KUPALA – 4th last time at Lyon Parilly over 2000m in a Class 4 handicap on June 8th. Can be
competitive
5. STAMP THE GROUND – Fair 2nd last time at Wissembourg in a Class 4 race on June 8th over
2150m when ahead of the selection. Ought to be in the shake-up
6. MONJARAZ – 4th last time over 2800m at Parislongchamp on June 6th in a Class 3 handicap.
In the mix
7. LADYBUG – Three unplaced runs of late, the latter over 1800m in a Class 4 handicap on June
6th. Makes no appeal
8. AFTERGLOW – 5th last time over 2150m on June 8th in a Class 4 race. 3rd three runs back at
Compiegne over 2000m. Outside place chance
9. LA PALOMBIERE – Unplaced last time, 2nd before that over 2300m at Angers in a Class 4
handicap on May 4th. Can not be ruled out
10. PALETUVIER – Three unplaced runs of late, the latter over 2100m in a Class 4 handicap on
May 26th. Hard to recommend
11. GRAND YAKA – Two unplaced runs this year, the latter over 2500m in a Class 4 handicap on
May 19th. Makes no appeal
12. SEMEUR – 2nd last time at Parislongchamp on June 6th over 2800m in a Class 4 handicap.
Player
13. DARENIX – Has six unplaced runs of late, the latter at Lyon Parilly over 2400m in a Class 4
race on June 1st. Can be overlooked
14. PRETTY WARRIOR – Three unplaced runs of late, the latter over 2800m in a Class 4 handicap
on June 6th. Still a maiden after 26 runs
15. WALDENON – 4th on the last run over 2100m in a Class 4 handicap on May 26th. One to
consider each-way
16. ABORIGENE – Has several unplaced runs of late, the latter over 2150m in a Class 4 race on
June 8th. Hard to fancy
17. MA BEREZINA – Three unplaced runs of late, the latter over 1800m in a Class 4 handicap on
June 7th. 3rd in April over 1800m. Needs to get back on track                                                        18. BELLA CIAO – Has several unplaced runs this year, the latter over 1800m in a Class 4 race
on June 2nd. Opposable

Summary: RIVER LILLY (1) could be the safest option off top-weight. She won two runs ago at
Wissembourg and followed that up with a decent third at the same track last time. SEMEUR (12)
will make the selection work hard for success. He has been second on three of his last five runs
and is sure to be competitive. MONJARAZ (6) is one for the each-way backers to latch on to.
STAMP THE GROUND (5) was one place ahead of the selection last time at Wissembourg and
will be involved at the business end.

SELECTIONS
RIVER LILLY (1) – SEMEUR (12) – MONJARAZ (6) – STAMP THE GROUND (5)

R4 – PRIX DU MONT DE FOLIOSA – 2100m (a1m1/4) – TURF – Class 4 Divided Handicap – Flat – EUR € 15,000

1. VESINABA – 2nd at Chantilly in a Class 3 handicap over 1900m last time on May 11th. Can
make the top three
2. IDOLE MOME – Three unplaced runs of late, the latter over 2400m at Craon in a Class 4
handicap on June 10th. Won in March over 2400m. Might find this trip too sharp
3. RAJA LUNA – 4th last time over 2100m at Parislongchamp in a Class 3 handicap on May 26th.
Needs to be more reliable
4. ATLANTICA – Won last time over 1800m in a Class 3 handicap at Compiegne on June 7th. Can
be a threat
5. SOHO VICKY – Good win last time at Compiegne over 1800m in a Class 4 handicap on June
7th. Can not be ruled out
6. LOVEATFIRSTSIGHT – Three unplaced runs of late, the latter over 2500m at Evreux in a Class
4 handicap on May 22nd. Hard to fancy
7. TREVOR SENORA – Three unplaced runs of late, the latter over 2000m at Chantilly in a Class
3 handicap on May 31st. Needs to get back on track
8. GRAZANO – Two unplaced runs of late, the latter over 2800m at Parislongchamp in a Class 3
handicap on June 6th. Looks vulnerable
9. JANISA BERE – Nice 2nd last time at Le Lion D’Angers over 2000m on June 9th. Placed before
that five time. Looks ready to win
10. ALBERT BRIDGE – Decent 2nd last time at Compiegne in a Class 3 handicap behind ALBERT
BRIDGE (10) on May 9th. Hard to dismiss
11. NOBLE ANGEL – 2nd two runs ago over 2100m in a Class 3 handicap on May 9th. Can be
forgiven the latest tame effort and be involved
12. SAVILE ROW – Three unplaced runs of late, the latter over 2100m at Parislongchamp in a
Class 3 handicap on May 9th. Hard to recommend
13. SPINNING MIST – Fair 3rd last time, won before that over 1950m at Le Mans on May 15th in a
Class 4 handicap. One to consider
14. STELLAR JAY – Two unplaced runs of late, 3rd before that over 2100m in a Class 3 handicap
on January 21st. Looks out of her depth
15. BALINA GARY – 4th last time over 2000m at Le Lion D’Angers on June 9th in a Class 4
handicap. Can make the top four at big odds
16. PRINCEDESCHAMPS – Three unplaced runs of late, the latter over 1900m at Chantilly in a
Class 3 handicap on May 11th. Makes limited appeal
17. LE HOULME – 4th last time over 2400m in a Class 4 handicap at Lyon Parilly on June 1st. Has
won one race from 27 starts and others rate higher                                                                        18. BECH RIVER – Two unplaced runs of late, won before that over 1800m in a Class 3 handicap
on May 3rd. Looks unlikely

Summary: JANISA BERE (9) has been a model of consistency of late with six placed runs in a
row. She looks ready to score and can edge this from SOHO VICKY (5) who won a Class 4
handicap at Compiegne on June 7th. VESINABA (1)looks the one to side with each way after a
decent second last time at Compiegne. SPINNING MIST (13) and NOBLE ANGEL (11) can not be
ignored and look destined for minor honours.

R5 – PRIX VATELLOR – 1200m (a6f) – TURF – Class 2 Race – Flat – EUR € 27,000

1. READY TO RUMBLE – Third at Mons over 1500m on 11 June.Will find this tougher is capable
of a place at best
2. GAME RUN – Disappointing 7th at Chantilly over 1000m on 2 June. Probably did not enjoy the
heavy going at Chantilly and can improve on dryer ground
3. SAXON VILLAGE – Unplaced in a Handicap at Kempton over 1000m on 18 October 2022. A
very long absence and best watched for now
4. BERNEUIL – Absent since his fourth in the Prix du Petit Couvert (Gr.3) last September.Should
make a bold bid
5. GALIK – Unplaced in a Handicap at ParisLongchamp over 1300m on 6 June. Others are
preferred in this line-up
6. FORZA CAPITANO – Finished 9th in a Conditions race at this track over 1200m on 25 May. Not
in the best of form and can play a minor role
7. EMPATHIC – Third in a Conditions race at Fontainebleau over 1200m on 15 March. Been on a
break since March. Has the speed and ability to be involved in the finish
8. LE TABOU – Unplaced in a Conditions race at this track over 1200m on 25 May. Clearly in need
of his return run and can improve vastly
9. HE’S A MONSTER – Unplaced in a Conditions race at ParisLongchamp over 1600m on 23
May.On debut on French soil, probably needed the run and will be better suited to the 1200m
10. CALIFORNIAGOLDRUSH – Third at Magdeburg over 1300m on 8 June. Only two placed efforts
from eleven career starts

Summary: BERNEUIL (4) returns from a break but if fit and well could take this race. His fourthplace finish last time out was in GR.3. LE TABOU (8) needed the last run and will improve so could
be a serious threat to these rivals. GAME RUN (2) will do better on a firmer track so deserves some
respect. EMPATHIC (7) returns from a sort break but can contest the finish.

R6 – PRIX PHIL DRAKE – 2400m (a1m1/2) – TURF – Class 2 Race – Flat – EUR € 27,000

1. VERT LIBERTE – Fourth in a Conditions race at Lyon-Parilly over 2400m on 18 May. Fourth in
the Prix la Moskowa (Listed) at this track and trip last year. Capable of making the frame
2. ANTE ALIOS – Disappointed when 7th in a Conditions race at Chantilly over 1800m on 17 May.
He won the first three and then was disappointing in the next two. Capable of bouncing back
3. HELLO HOLA HAY – On debut won at Frauenfeld over 2400m on 19 June. Will find this tougher
and might play a minor role
4. KLIFF BERE – A winner in a Handicap at Angers over 2300m on 21 May. Won in style and can
double up
5. PROLETARIUS – A 7-year-old by Planteur out of Beaumont who makes his debut. Watch the
betting
6. EXCELSIOR – Decent fourth in a Conditions race at this track over 2100m on 1 May. Seldom far
off them and can be involved in the finish
7. RIKA DE LA VIS – A winner in a Handicap at ParisLongchamp over 2400m on 16 May. Hat- trick
seeking but will have to up her game here
8. NACIDO – Finished 5th in a Conditions race at Strasbourg over 2000m on 29 May. A long losing
streak and others are preferred
9. SILAWI – A good fifth after a break in a Conditions race Bordeaux-Le-Bouscat over 2400m on
25 May. He did not appreciate heavy ground at Bordeaux. Can show vast improvement
10. ILUMINE PRECIEUSE – Fifth in a Conditions race at Chateaubriant over 2650m on 3 June.
Must improve on recent efforts

Summary: Around this time last year SILAWI (9) was runner-up in a GR.3. He disappointed his
connections last time out but is capable of bouncing back to win. ANTE ALIOS (2) has not shown
his best form in his last two starts but has the ability and deserves the utmost respect. EXCELSIOR
(6) is never too far behind and not out of it. VERT LIBERTE (1) is also capable of running well
