There have already been a few nibbles at the price, but the 15/2 on offer remains excellent value for Tequila Sun in the cross-country at Mont de Marsan this morning.

The nine year old is 5-19 in this sphere, but that becomes 3-4 when focusing on this track alone, and she has taken the last two renewals of this race.  Though she had a prep run in 2020, she came here fresh from a near five-month layoff when winning last year, so the break since pulling up in a Listed contest at Compiegne in November is not a concern.

The good ground is very much in her favour and she looks sure to run a big race.

11.50am Mont de Marsan – 1.5pt win Tequila Sun @ 15/2 (various)
