The class 2 at La Teste this afternoon (4.37pm) looks an ideal spot for Hometruths, who should return to winning ways today.
She made a winning debut at Bordeaux in October on her sole start at two, beating Ondulee, who went on to finish second to Agave at Listed level in March.
I thought she ran very creditably on reappearance at Saint-Cloud behind La Parisienne (and really should’ve finished second that day), before finishing fourth in the Group 3 Prix Cleopatre back at Saint-Cloud last time. The way she travelled over the 1m2f trip that day suggested this drop back a furlong won’t be an issue – she hit the front going best two furlongs out, but didn’t look to get home.
With last year’s Italian Listed winner Sa Filonzana yet to fire on French soil, Easily Amused having won a weak maiden on debut and Touristic having plenty to prove after a couple of disappointing efforts, this looks a great opportunity for the Rouget-trained Hometruths to record a second career success.
