Friday’s Lucky 15
Each and every day of the racing year we bring you a bumper NAPs Table to give you the inside scoop on all the plays you’ll need that day. But, well, as there’s no racing in the UK and Ireland today the NAPs table has knocked off early for Christmas.
WELCOME TO PADDY POWER NEWS!
Alright for some, isn’t it? But here at Paddy Power News we never rest and, in the absence of the trusty NAPs table, we’ve rounded up four of The Racing Post’s best bets at Chantilly on the all weather in France today to see us through to Christmas Eve. Here’s your French Friday Lucky 15!
IN TIME had back-to-back wins at Compiegne before coming up short in a strong Group 2 at Deauville in August. Still ran well to be beaten less than 4l and she looks a major player in this softer company AW debut.
SAUTERNE is a half-sister to winners including Santi Del Mare. Close third of 15 in a newcomers race at Deauville late last month, switched and battling her way through from mid-division. Looks sure to improve.
PALETUVIER is a maiden after four starts but ran big race in defeat when second on last month’s handicap debut at Deauville and gets another chance off the same mark here. Respected.
An open handicap but there could be a big run in GRISBI, especially if he’s ridden closer to the pace than of late. He has stayed on well from a mile back the last twice. Making a case for the selection also brings Jamala into the equation, while Oncle Fernand looks to have solid claims.
