The 1m1f maiden at Lyon lacks any strength in depth and morning favourite Black Wall gets another chance to shed his maiden tag. However, he isn’t the most straightforward and is worth taking on with Spell On You.
The Niarchos-owned filly finished sixth on debut at Saint-Cloud in September, but that came over an inadequate 6.5f and was a fair effort in good company.
A half-sister to two black-type performers, and out of a Listed winner over 1m4f, she should be seen to much better effect stepped up in trip this year. The Prix de Diane entry suggests she has been showing up nicely at home and her sire’s record on the All-Weather is encouraging for today’s reappearance.
RECOMMENDED BET: 5.55pm Lyon Spell On You win @ 7/4 (most firms, 15/8 in places)
