Namora hasn’t lived up to expectations thus far, but Manon Scandella-Lacaille looks to have found the right conditions for the filly today and she is a little overpriced in the juvenile claimer at Marseille Borely (12.25pm).
She was given a good mention by her trainer on debut at Moulins, but fluffed her lines at the start and ran green. She was never put in the race here on her next start on very soft ground, before a creditable fourth in claiming company on her latest start over 1m2f, again at this track.
That was in a better race than this, and she didn’t really see out the trip on soft ground. Today’s shorter trip on good ground should suit and her trainer has added headgear for the first time.
Scandella-Lacaille has three in this, but her other two representatives ran with €9K tags at Cavaillon last time (Sospiria winning on very soft ground), whereas Namora ran with a €20K tag last time (in a race in which she could’ve carried 2kg less on €16K). Her rider Marina Brunelli isn’t the strongest, but she knows her well, having been on board for the first two starts, and her record for the yard since mid-August reads two wins and five places from 13 rides.
We have a good draw in stall 4 and with plenty of deadwood in the race, Namora should be reaching the frame today.
12.25pm Marseille Borely – 1pt win, 0.5pt place Namora @ 8-1 (all firms)
