Joly Risk won a Listed chase at Craon two years ago, and showed enough in two starts in the spring to suggest he is worth following in claiming company today (3.45pm).


Just touched off over hurdles on his return in March, he subsequently finished runner-up to decent yardstick Fandango over the larger obstacles at Fontainebleau in late March when last seen.


Though off since, he has reportedly had a racecourse gallop in preparation for this contest and it has been encouraging to see the Leenders team back in the winning groove of late.  He is reportedly more forward for this than his stablemate Sumsam, while form danger Grand Clermont may well need the run.


3.45pm Auteuil – 2pts win Joly Risk @ 3-1 (all firms)



Hugo Merienne can’t stop training winners at Auteuil these days and Ginota could give him further success in Paris this afternoon (4.20pm).


The lightly-raced four year old was clearly given a workable opening mark, showing up well when sixth on her handicap debut at Clairefontaine in August on her return from over three months off, before finishing second here three weeks ago.  She can obviously race off the same mark here and with that proven course form and her yard flying along at present, she is worth backing.


Invite De Marque gave it a good go from the front on his reappearance in a Quinte here and is very much respected down in grade, as he’s a really well-bred four year old with the scope to progress, but he is priced accordingly.


4.20pm Auteuil – 1pt win, 0.5pt place Ginota @ 15/2 4 places (Coral, Ladbrokes, William Hill, Betway, 15/2 5 places Befred, 7-1 5 places Skybet, Bet365, 7-1 4 places elsewhere)



One to watch in the second race (1.25pm) is Iorana Vallis.  She hasn’t lived up to market expectations on her two starts over fences to date, having been sent off favourite on both occasions.  However, she did finish runner-up on the first of them, in June, and is a winner around here over hurdles.  She is up to this grade if getting her act together and the 14-1 was tempting.
