Young amateur Thomas Foucher has been making a name for himself this season, with eight winners from 16 rides so far in 2022. He heads to Dieppe today for one ride Mickael Seror on Iskandar, who looks worth backing at 2-1.
It was a very weak race he won at Paray-Le-Monial in April, but a subsequent third in handicap company last month was a fair effort, and he went close last time, when runner-up to stablemate and today’s favourite, Souveraine Elusive (who admittedly won well). However, he was giving away 3kg that day (taking into account the rider’s claim on the winner), and is today in receipt of 3.5kg, so there is a significant swing at the weights.
Iskandar isn’t the easiest to ride and tends to go off quickly enough in front, but Foucher looks excellent value for his claim and hopefully he can land a tenth career success.
RECOMMENDED BET: 1.43pm Dieppe – Iskandar win @ 2-1 (all firms)
