Delighted that both selections went in at Clairefontaine yesterday. Hopefully the track can be lucky for us again today, although the fare is very mediocre for a Saturday.
The 2.50pm is the highlight and features a few 40+ horses and recent winners. Golden Call is a short-priced favourite based on his good form and a 5kg hike in the ratings for a Vichy handicap win off 39.0. Preference is for Christophe Ferland’s Fasol, a well-bred son of Galileo who held Classic entries and was the subject of high praise when winning his maiden at this course last time. He stays the 12 furlongs well and should give a great account.
2.50pm Clairefontaine – 1pt win Fasol 4-1 (all firms)
Later on it looks like Orange Vif has a great chance of finally landing his handicap off his current mark of 29.0. Sent off a short price last time at Compiegne, he got no luck at all and he will be doing his best work late on over this 1800m trip. Foxy Music should be shorter than 7-1 but she looks a tricky ride and might need more headgear than just the hood in future.
4.36pm Clairefontaine – 1pt win Orange Vif 7/2 (all firms)
