The second division of the 2100m handicap at Angers (11.50am) features two well-exposed sorts at the top of the market and at a huge price, it is worth chancing Madn’es.
The lightly-raced five year old has run a little better than the form figures suggest on a few occasions and his four handicap starts to date have seen him run at Chantilly, Nantes and ParisLongchamp (twice), running creditably off higher marks than today’s.
He has switched yards since last seen in June, leaving Jonathan Ward (his only runner so far this year) and joining Celine Lequien, who has made a good start to her training career and has nine winners on the board in her second season, at a 13% strike-rate.
Five of his six siblings have won races (including 2021 US Grade 1 winner Tribhuvan), Lequien is well capable of readying one first time, and it’s interesting to note Madn’es has been given six entries this week, suggesting this isn’t just a pipe-opener.
11.50am Angers – 1pt win, 0.5pt place Madn’es @ 50-1 (all firms)
