I put up Angelaba in the Criterium de Lyon last time out and she looked a very unlucky loser that day, so it’s worth giving her another chance despite the rise in grade at Deauville today (11.20am).
Christophe Ferland’s representative had previously won a class 2 here in August, getting the better of Elounda Queen, who is joint-favourite today. It was very close there and both have stepped forward on the form since, but the price discrepancy looks too big.
Angelaba saw this trip out well at Lyon and looked to handle the soft ground there, so conditions should suit, and this impeccably-bred filly has a pedigree that suggests there is more to come.
11.20am Deauville – 1pt win Angelaba @ 5-1 (all firms)
Chubasco goes really well here at Deauville and is worth an each-way bet in the third division of the 1m1.5f handicap (1.07pm).
He hit form in the second half of last season, scoring under today’s rider Mickael Barzalona at Clairefontaine off 26.5 in late August, before three runs over this CD in December/January off today’s mark of 29, finishing third, second and then first.
He did best of the closers over CD off 31 in April, but was then given the summer off and has had three runs to get race fit in recent weeks, running better than the form figures suggest on his latest two outings.
I’m a fan of the trainer Christophe Lotoux, who does well with his relatively small string, and it’s worth noting he has only booked Barzalona on eight occasions in the past year. All eight have been on the AW at Deauville, with a record of three wins and two places from those eight rides.
Chubasco is in the right race here (thankfully missing out on being at the foot of the weights of the second division of this handicap) and looks set to go close.
1.07pm Deauville – 1pt each-way Chubasco @ 7-1 4 places (Quinnbet, SkyBet, Paddy Power, Coral, Ladbrokes, 5 places with Betfred)
