A high-class card at ParisLongchamp this evening and our bet goes in the Group 2 Prix de Malleret, with Adhafera looking overpriced at double-figure odds this morning.
The Jean-Claude Rouget-trained daughter of Sea The Stars won a good-ground maiden in April, but was well-held on soft on her next outing in Listed company. Back on a better ground last time, she looked unlucky not to return to winning ways in the Listed Prix Melisande. Ridden with restraint on that occasion, she had to wait for a run, but was closing fast at the line.
Out of a Grade 3 turf winner over 1m3f in the US, this step up in trip looks sure to suit and her trainer is in sparkling form.
6.45pm ParisLongchamp: 1pt win, 0.5pt place Adhafera @ 12-1 (all firms)
