Bordeaux Tips and Racecourse Guide
Famed for its wine, Bordeaux-Le Bouscat also features excellent provincial racing on a right-handed turf course across 29 meetings each year.
Established in 1835, Bordeaux can still pull in crowds of around 2,000 spectators for its feature days, where horses from across France compete to battle up the Bordeaux hill.

Preciosite ran a race full of promise when a staying-on third on very soft ground on debut at Vichy in August and is worth another chance at Bordeaux today (1.07pm) after a disappointing effort last time.
Last on the turn for home on debut, she was beaten just over a length by Una Stonda, who followed up in a class 2 next time, with subsequent maiden winner and Saint-Cloud handicap runner-up Anoline in second.
She was tipped up on this site next time, as a well-bred filly that had been bought into after that debut by Gerard Augustin-Normand, but the quicker ground around Marseille may well have found her out and she never looked like getting there.
Conditions will be much more testing at Bordeaux today, which will surely help this half-sister to heavy-ground Listed-winning two year old Bonita Queen, and with the exception of favourite Texanna, who has already had four starts and has the cheekpieces on for the first time, this looks very winnable.
1.07pm Bordeaux – 1pt win Preciosite @ 9/2 (all firms)
I think Le Rozel is interesting in the colts/geldings maiden (12.25pm), but his two runs to date have come on a sound surface and there has to be a fair doubt about whether he will handle today’s conditions. I liked his run at Toulouse last time in a race that worked out well (winner Listed-placed, fourth and fifth won next time) and the 8-1 is appealing.

The opening race on the card at Bordeaux this afternoon features a handful of juveniles looking to shed their maiden tags. The market is headed by Anna Karenine, a €140,000 Toronado yearling from a family with early speed, trained by Didier Guillemin. At 9/4 she looks...
National Velvet hasn’t been at her best of late, but there have been excuses the last twice and the Jerome Reynier-trained filly looks fairly treated for this return to turf today. She was a dual winner last year, including on heavy ground at Compiegne in September...
Gianluca Bietolini has had a quiet start to the year, but he runs a promising filly at Bordeaux this morning and hopefully Sea Of Ash can make the journey south worthwhile. The daughter of Wootton Bassett ran two really good races in defeat in soft-ground maidens last...
In the class 2 conditions race over 7f (12.05pm), course specialist Bayoun looks a little too big at the 7-1 on offer. The nine year old has only run 27 times in his career to date, but has won 12 of those starts (and finished runner-up on nine occasions). In fact,...
Though she doesn't win very often, Sally Jane tends to give her running and makes a fair bit of appeal dropping in grade at Bordeaux this afternoon (2.17pm). This is the lowest-grade handicap she has run in during her career, she is proven on the ground and has run...
Some trappy contests on the early mixed card at Bordeaux, but I think Fan Of Sea is a well-handicapped horse off a mark of 53 in the 2m4f handicap hurdle and he is worth backing. A really useful performer in AQPS bumpers, winning a Gr.2 at Saint-Cloud in 2018, he has...
One on the card at Bordeaux, where Kesa Great looks a fair price to make it second time lucky in the hurdle for four-year-olds (12.50pm). The son of Great Pretender finished eighth on his debut at the track at the end of February, but wasn't given a hard time that...
