A tricky card at Saint-Cloud today, but I think Bosquentin is a little overpriced in the claimer (3.10pm) and he is worth backing.
The seven year old wasn’t in the best of form when last seen on the All-Weather in early March, but he has had a break since and can run very well fresh – he won at Deauville in December after eight weeks off and was third in a claimer here last June on his first start for six months.
A previous winner over this course and distance, he has conditions in his favour and this is certainly his easiest task on turf since winning at Clairefontaine last August, when somehow getting the better of subsequent Listed winner (and admittedly big improver!) Afterglow.
Shut The Box is the obvious one here and very much the one to beat, but he is regressive and has stamina to prove.
3.10pm Saint-Cloud – 1pt win Bosquentin @ 7-1 (Price Hold with Fitzdares, also most firms)
