Auteuil Tips and Racecourse Guide
The expansive Auteuil racecourse located at the Porte d’Auteuil is the closest racecourse to the city centre and has been attracting large crowds since it opened in 1873.
The temple of French jumps racing plays host to all French Grade One jumps races and provides the springboard to many future great steeplechasers and hurdlers, including the likes of Kauto Star and Big Buck’s.
The chase course presents a thorough test of jumping, including a huge water jump in front of the grandstand and a large ‘rail ditch and fence’ on the far side, taken on the second circuit of the French equivalent of the Cheltenham Gold Cup, the Grand Steeple-Chase de Paris.
The season is split into two parts at Auteuil. The first part is in the spring and climaxes with the Grand Steeple-Chase de Paris in late May. Then racing resumes in the autumn, with the Grand Prix d’Automne and Prix La Haye Jousselin taking place over the same weekend, now called the 48 hours of jumps racing.

The Francois Nicolle-trained Irandando Has is bred to be smart and makes plenty of appeal in the first division of the Prix Finot (2.35pm).
The son of No Risk At All looks to be in the easier of the two divisions on paper and has reportedly been working very well in advance of today’s race.
A half-brother to three black-type performers, including two winners at Grade 3 level here, hopefully he can go three better than his dam’s fourth place in the fillies’ equivalent of this back in 2005!
1.25pm Auteuil – Irandando Has win @ 5/2 (most firms, 11/4 in places)
Loup Royans has shaped well on more than one occasion over hurdles this summer and though he has yet to shed his maiden tag, he is an interesting contender in the second division of the handicap hurdle (5.20pm).
He showed little on the flat, but looks more a jumping type and ran his best race to date when third last time, overcoming a serious jumping error as the race was hotting up and finishing just in front of a next-time-out winner here.
This mark of 54 looks workable and he looks set to run a big race on handicap debut.
4.20pm Auteuil – Loup Royans each-way @ 7-1 5 places (Skybet, William Hill, Unibet, Betfred, 4 places elsewhere)

How to get there
Auteuil is the best-served racecourse in Paris by public transit. Patrons can take the Metro Line 10 to Porte d’Auteuil and from there you cross the road towards the racecourse and then cross the racecourse underground via the public subway.
An Uber costs about €25 from Central Paris to the racecourse and takes half an hour.
Auteuil can be reached via Charles de Gaulle or Orly airports. Orly is much closer and is well worth selecting if you can. From there, it is a 40-minute taxi to the racecourse.

Daniela Mele has had a fine first half of the year at Auteuil and has frequently been the yard to follow in handicaps here, with five winners, two seconds and a third from their 14 runners in handicaps at the course this term. Harpon D'Oudairies beat a useful...
I put up Captain Du Berlais at Compiegne last time and though he could only finish fourth that day, I'm keeping the faith at Auteuil today (5.38pm). He wouldn't have beaten the impressive winner last time, but tack issues that arose before the turn for home meant...
It looks a pretty open renewal of the Prix Sagan at Auteuil (1.33pm), the market headed by yesterday’s Arqana Grand Steeple sale-topper Just A Princess. However, at a bigger price I like the chances of Just A Star (sold €170,000 yesterday), who was upsides her...
We’re taking a chance on fitness/wellbeing, but the 25-1 on offer about Ho La La Forez at Auteuil (6.02pm) is way too big and well worth chancing. He has only run four times to date, and on second start last year was challenging for second behind Graded performer Yes...
An eight-race card at Auteuil and our bet goes in the third (4.41pm), with Saint Turgeon an interesting contender on his return to the course. He was a really classy four year old, finishing third in the autumn Grade 1 here in November 2020, and won twice over fences...
15 races at Auteuil today, with racing getting underway at 11.15am and running through to 7.35pm! Three Listed contests for juveniles get proceedings started and we have a bet in the second race (11.49am), with Carlton Du Berlais a shade of value at 10-1. With Les...
The 2m2f conditions hurdle at Auteuil (4.00pm) looks fairly competitive, but I think there is plenty of improvement to come from Saint Maxime and he is worth supporting at double-figure odds. The Francois Nicolle representative was fifth on debut at Compiegne, when...
The opening handicap hurdle at Auteuil is far from the strongest of contests for the grade, and it offers a good opportunity for Dinozaure to return to winning ways. He ran away with the second division of a Quinte here in September and ran very creditably when fourth...
The last race at Auteuil this afternoon is a conditions hurdle for five-year-olds over an extended two miles. The field includes a number of progressive steeplechasers who are making their returns to action, including the 71-rated Grade One winner from last season, Le...
