The booking of Pierre-Charlies Boubot by trainer Yann Barberot on newcomer Raise You First is interesting ahead of this middle-distance fillies’ maiden. The daughter of Maxios has a nice pedigree and Barberot has successfully used Boubot already this year, securing one-winner from just two-runners when combining.
Barberot also runs our tentative selection GLADYS SENORA who already has the benefit and experience of two-career starts. She was staying on nicely at Lyon earlier this month and the extra distance and weight allowance from jockey Clement Guitraud can see her go close. Mikel Delzangles has not had many runners since racing returned and his Aga Khan newcomer, Cabiya looks a danger.
The colts and geldings middle distance maiden is our second race on the card for three-year-olds with a small field of six-declared runners. This looks a match on paper between Darkot and Reventador, with the Pierre-Charles Boudot mount getting our seal of approval. REVENTADOR has the fitness edge of his Aga Kahn rival and can land this maiden for trainer Carlos Laffon-Parias.
The son of Zoffany ran a creditable fourth on debut at Longchamp last October in a race were Darkot was a neck behind in fifth. The benefit of a recent run at Strasbourg when finishing third along with Boudot in the saddle for the first time gives him many positives. The Andre Fabre trained Tumulte could be the dark horse with jockey Hugo Besnier claiming eight pounds on a Wertheimer runner.
A very average claimer over nine-furlongs for the three-year-olds where recent winners, Jacques Coeur, Eversweet and Broken Land are the leading contenders. Henri Pantall’s runner is out quickly after game victory at Angers last week but looks too short in the betting. The weight allowance from Aude Duporte can see BROKEN LAND score again for trainer Andrea Marcialis after a Compiegne victory in March.
“Stupid Questions” is back on FTHM this week. Always wondered what a certain bit of racing jargon meant but never plucked up the courage to ask before?

ON THE SEA has the fitness edge to see off main rival Capla Gilda in the closing conditions race over 5.5-furlongs this Saturday evening. It’s a positive to see Christophe Soumillon remain in the saddle after he guided him to victory at Chantilly 17-days ago. Capla Gilda is the main danger to our selection but despite having Boudot in the saddle, she hasn’t been seen since last November and will likely need the run.
