Today’s tip at Deauville runs in the Quinte (12.50pm), where Acclam looks a live contender to land this valuable prize on just his second outing in handicap company.

His maiden form worked out well, particularly his soft-ground success at Strasbourg in April, and you can forgive any horse a below-par run at Nantes, where he ran next time.

Starting off in a Quinte on his fourth career start, he travelled noticeably well in rear and the gaps just took a little to long to come.  Still, he finished to really good effect and the slight step up in trip, as well as a return to slightly softer ground, should help.

RECOMMENDED BET: ACCLAM (12.50pm Deauville)
