Francis Graffard looks to have found an ideal opportunity for Ebaiyra and she can get off the mark for the year at Chantilly this afternoon (2.33pm).
Twice placed at the top level last term (runner-up in the Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud and third in the Hong Kong Vase on her final start for Alain de Royer-Dupre), there was no disgrace in her third behind Grand Glory and Burgarita at ParisLongchamp in April and she was just a nose and a short-head behind subsequent Group 1 winner Dreamloper in the Group 2 Dahlia Stakes at Newmarket when last seen in May.
She is much the best of these on figures and should be able to justify her short odds today.
RECOMMENDED BET: Ebaiyra win @ 8/11 (all firms)
Beaten a short-head at the course on his penultimate start, Archimede can go one better on his return to action at Chantilly today (3.08pm).
Fourth over this CD on his seasonal reappearance in March, he went so close to a first career success on his next outing and there was clearly something amiss when down the field on his latest start in May.
Pascal Bary’s representatives rarely lack for fitness, so the break since is no concern, and there is surely a race in Archimede off this sort of mark.
RECOMMENDED BET: 3.08pm Chantilly – Archimede each-way @ 7-1 (all firms)
