Cagnes sur Mer Tips and Racecourse Guide

Cagnes sur Mer on the French Riviera hosts distinct meetings for flat, jumps and trotting.

December and January plays host to the jumping, which tends to be of a modest quality and complements the action at Pau in the South West. The jumps then gives way to the flat, which builds in quality until it culminates with a series of Listed races at the end of February.

The fair weather and consistent polytrack surface means the course can withstand so much racing, whilst the Parisian tracks are closed.

Cagnes has a habit of throwing up quality three-year-olds, many of whom will make their racecourse debuts here on the coast. Jean-Claude Rouget in particular has taken the wraps off Raabihah (5th in 2020 Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe) and Light Stars (subsequent Listed winner) in recent years.

Cagnes sur Mer is most famous for having been the track where 2012 Prix du Jockey Club winner Saonois jumped up the ranks, winning the 10-furlong Listed Prix Policeman.

Many horses are stabled at the course for the duration of the meeting, which means it can even attract British raiders. In 2020, Collide won the Listed Grand Prix du Departement 06 for Newmarket trainer Hugo Palmer under jockey Jason Watson.

Cagnes Horse Racing Tips Today – 23/01

A couple of bets at Cagnes this afternoon, but I’ll have to make the write-ups brief.

 

Calypso had plenty of chances in the UK for James Ferguson, but it’s worth noting the best of his form came with some cut in the ground and he has his conditions for his first run on turf since switching to Ed Monfort.

 

He has run very creditably in defeat on his past two starts and the return to this sort of trip is a positive.  Monfort’s Cagnes team are in excellent form and he looks a very good alternative to the favourite, who is starting out for Yoann Bonnefoy and having his first run since mid-November.

 

1.30pm Cagnes – 1pt each-way Calypso @ 4-1 (all firms)

 

A field of 12 for the claimer over a mile and Matt Machine looks too big a price at 9-1.  Markus Geisler has started the year in blistering form, with four winners from his ten runners so far in 2024, and Matt Machine latest run at Marseille Vivaux can be upgraded, given he raced wide throughout.

 

Runner-up at Vivaux off a mark of 38 on his penultimate outing, this is very much a drop in grade, the trip is fine and he has a better draw today.  The sole representative at Cagnes so far this year for Geisler, this looks an excellent opportunity.

 

2.05pm Cagnes – 1pt each-way Matt Machine @ 9-1 (all firms)

 

Additional bet: 0.5pt each-way double @ 49-1 (all firms)
