We head to Marseille Vivaux for today’s French action and our bet comes in the 1m2f maiden (12.30pm).
Morning favourite Johnny Love has some fair form to his name around here and is respected, but I like the chances of Capoeira.
Runner-up in a nursery off 69 on his final start in Ireland when trained by Johnny Murtagh (the form of which worked out particularly well), he took a step forward on two quiet runs in France when third in a Deauville claimer last time.
The form of that race gives him a big chance here, and it’s notable that his in-form yard send him on the long journey south from Chantilly for this. Soumillon is 123111113225 for the yard since the end of January and his presence in the saddle is an obvious plus.
12.30pm Marseille Vivaux – 1pt win Capoeira @ 11/4 (various)
