Day 2 of the Vichy July Festival has been moved to the evening, with the last race taking place at 11.59pm French time. It’s a long wait for our bet in that final race on the card, but hopefully Zarak Star will be worth it!
Andreas Schutz has been in blistering form this term – his record in the past three months reads 2141262142121, so 10 of his 13 runners have finished in the first two.
Zarak Star made her debut in a fair newcomers’ race at Saint-Cloud last month, finishing off really strongly from the back of the field to claim fourth. We nearly had a 12-1 winner from that contest at the weekend, with the ninth home, Two Face, finishing a head second at Chantilly.
Zarak Star has a pedigree and physical scope to progress and this looks an excellent opportunity.
10.59pm – 2pts win Zarak Star @ 11/4 (most firms, 3-1 in places)
