International Racing: Deauville – Monday 01 June 2020

International Racing: Lyon-Parilly – Thursday 28 May 2020

Three Group 1 races at Deauville kick off the weeks racing in France and what a way to do it. The French Equivalent of the 2000 Guineas provides for a tantalizing day of racing, when the colts and fillies versions of the prestigious race take place in the 5th and 6th race respectively. VICTOR LUDORUM lines up in the colts’ race and he still has class written all over him, despite failing to maintain his unbeaten record last time out. If back to his best, he will win as a Best Bet should. See more here.

Race 1 – 13:30 – 1000m – Class 3 Handicap - Turf
Selections: 1 – 4 – 2 – 6 – 5          
WIND TEST may have just needed that comeback run three weeks back and he should strip a lot fitter for this follow up attempt. He has a solid record second up and having finished first and second from three attempts over this trip, the drop to the 1000m should be ideal. With the 4kg claiming apprentice up, he looks the one to beat this time. KENBAIO returns for his first run this year, after a 6-month absence from racing. He kicks off his campaign over the minimum trip and he should have enough speed to feature prominently at this level. The son of Kendargent has a solid record at this course and with Pierre-Charles Boudot back in the irons, he looks a big threat first up.

Race 2 - 1900m – Class 3 Handicap – All-Weather             
Selections: 2 – 1 – 8 – 3 – 10
FOREVER COCO gave a promising sight when returning just over a week ago and she should relish this slight step up in trip, second up. Despite not winning on the All-Weather, the daughter of Rio De La Plata has notched up 2-wins and 2-seconds from her 8-starts so far. Christian Demuro regains he ride and that should give her followers plenty of confidence. With the expected improvement to come, she should be tough to beat. LETTYT FIGHT returns after a 3-month absence and he brings with him a solid record on the All-Weather. He meets the right sort of field first up, with Pierre-Charles Boudot up and if not too in need of this run, he should be a big threat. Both THE ROOM and ABBELLO have shown up well on return and should be worth including.

Race 3 – 14:35 – 1900m – Class 3 Handicap – All-Weather
Selections: 4 – 2 – 6 – 8 – 7
TAKEDOWN would’ve just needed that last start, when returning for his first run after a 3-month absence. The 3-year old colt now reverts to the All-Weather surface where he showed very promising signs towards the back end of his last campaign. He finds conditions to suit from pole position and with Maxime Guyon up, he’ll be the top pick in the 3rd. JUST FOR DREAM has his first start on this surface, while stepping out for his second run after a rest here. Drawn widest, he will be looking to build on that decent comeback run in this class and if taking to the All-Weather, he should feature prominently.

Race 4 – 1600m – Class 1 Handicap – Turf
Selections: 1 – 11 – 6 – 10 – 8
ROCQUEMONT continued his promising form when returning after a 3-month absence last time. He was just touched off into 2nd in that run over this trip and he’ll be cherry ripe for his follow up attempt here. The son of Anodin is in the form of his life at the moment and despite the wide draw, he gets the services of Christophe Soumillon and should be a big contender. RAJKUMAR also gave a very good account of himself when returning for his first run after a short absence recently. The 7-year old gelding has a useful record first and second up, so he too will be cherry ripe for this. From a plum draw and with Pierre-Charles Boudot in the irons, he looks a big threat to the top one. TANTPISPOUREUX caught the eye last time out and he will be looking to make a big impression here. The 4-year old son of Showcasing has featured prominently in this class before and deserves plenty of respect now.

Race 5 – 15:50 – 1600m – Group 1 – Turf
Selections: 5 – 7 – 2 – 1 – 3
VICTOR LUDORUM clearly needed that last start, when tasting defeat for the first time in his short career. The son of Shamardal was on of the top European 2-year olds last year and he clearly has the credentials to put that run behind him and redeem himself in this Group 1 contest. Stable companion, ARAPAHO, hasn’t quite faced the same strength of opposition as the top selection, but he has notched up an impressive career record of 3 wins from 4 attempts and the son of Lope De Vega is clearly progressive. Pierre-Charles Boudot is an eye-catching jockey booking, having ridden THE SUMMIT to victory when beating the top selection recently, and they must be included here. The latter was impressive when winning that last start, mentioned above. Despite the jockey change, he must be considered.

Race 6 – 16:25 – 1600m – Group 1 Fillies – Turf
Selections: 3 – 7 – 2 – 1 – 4
TICKLE ME GREEN caught the eye on debut, when taking on Group 3 company and going down by just 0,70-lengths in third. The daughter of Sea The Moon retains the services of Pierre-Charles Boudot and with progression to come, she should be a big factor in the finish. DREAM AND DO would’ve needed that last start, when returning from a 6-month absence. She finished right in front of the top selection in that run and should strip a lot fitter for her follow up attempt. Maxime Guyon retains the ride for this rise in class and she deserves plenty of respect. TROPBEAU has won four of her six career starts, which includes Group 2 and Group 3 successes. To add, the daughter of Showcasing has placed at this level. She beat the top two selections last time, in the Group 3 contest mentioned above and with Barzalona retaining, she must be included.

Race 7 – 17:00 – 2000m – Class 2 - Turf  
Selections: 1 – 3 – 2 – 6 – 4
DAWN INTELLO appears to be one of the better bets on the card. Having notched up an impressive debut win on the All-Weather, he has returned fresh and confirmed that with a big performance in stronger company last time out. Down in class here, he should strip a lot fitter and with Barzalona retaining, he should be very tough to oppose. VIENNE also gave a very good sight when returning after a rest last time out, in Class 1 company. Cristian Demuro rode her on that occasion, and it is encouraging to see him retain the ride here. Drawn well, she’ll be one of the leading contenders at the business end. HELLENISTIQUE wasn’t disgraced last time out, when returning from a rest and having won his penultimate start in this class, he will have plenty of scope to feature here.

Race 8 – 17:35 – 2000m – Group 1 (Arabian) – Turf 
Selections: 4 – 3 – 2 – 1 – 5
DERYAN clearly needed that comeback run after a 3,5-month absence from the course and he certainly wasn’t disgraced to finish 3rd, despite the 11,5-length margin. With a useful second up record, he will be cherry ripe for this and has the credentials to land the lions share of the prize money. HAJRES has his first run back after a rest, but he seems to race well when fresh after a rest, having picked up a record of a win and two seconds from four first up attempts. He has featured prominently at Group 1 level and must be included once again. SHALAA finished behind the top selection last time out, when having his first run back after a 2-month break. With just 8 starts to his name, he will have plenty more to come and deserves respect in this small, but competitive field.

Race 9 – 18:10 – 1900m – Class 3 Handicap – All -Weather
Selections: 3 – 4 – 2 – 10 – 14
ALE TANGO was showing some good consistent form on this surface towards the back end of his last campaign and he returns first up, after a 3,5-month rest here. Pierre-Charles Boudot retains the ride and the pair should be right there at the business end of a competitive looking Class 3 event. NEW TRAFFORD arrives under similar circumstances as the top selection, with this being his first run back after a rest on the back of some useful form. Barzalona takes the ride first up and if not too in need of it, he should be involved in the finish. LADY ARKADINA arrives on the back of a turf victory last time out, when racing fresh after a short absence. He has some useful form on the All-Weather and if building on that penultimate start he should be a big threat.

Race 10 – 18:45 – 1900m – Class 3 – All Weather
Selections: 10 – 1 – 13 – 9 – 5
RIVER OF SILVER deserves another look after a disappointing effort last time out, when finding a fair amount of betting support. He seems to be better suited this this surface and the slight drop in trip is bound to suit the son of Rio De La Plata. Soumillon takes the mount from a wide barrier and on his best form he should be worth following. WHERE IS CHARLIE should be better off here, after that solid comeback on the turf run last time. She reverts to the All-Weather where she ended off her last campaign and with Tony Piccone retaining the ride here, she’ll be one of the bigger threats to the top one. BURMA MOON and JENILAT CHANCE have both performed well in their respective comeback runs and with the run under the belt, should go close once again and must be included in wider perms.
