Deauville Tips and Racecourse Guide

Deauville is perhaps France’s most exclusive racecourse and offers a wonderful collection of top-class races during in August carnival. The seaside resort is popular with Parisians and has hosted racing since 1864, originally in order to compete with Dieppe and offer a complementary gambling outlet to the casino.

Deauville has racing over various distances and also benefits from a polytrack ring to host racing through the winter months. In 2021 it was confirmed that the course would be upgraded further with floodlights, in the hope of boosting average attendances in the off-season and maximising betting turnover on its races.

There are not many places in the world you can lie on the beach, eat wonderful seafood and watch a Group One in the space of a couple of hours but if you dream it, Deauville has it.

The Arqana Sales are recommended to visit for free theatre, particularly at the yearling sales. Deauville’s best races are the Group One Prix Morny for juveniles and the Group One Prix Jacques Le Marois for milers.

The most popular nightspots are the Brok Cafe for legendary mojitos and Le Drakkar for fine dining.

Plenty is already being said and written in France about their lacklustre showing in the Deauville Group Ones this month, though with Glycon and Botanik they look to hold two good chances in the final highlight today, the Grand Prix de Deauville.

 

A lot of the build-up to this race has been about Stay Foolish, the Japanese globetrotter who is at least 5lb clear on ratings. We know he’s a stayer though and that 12 furlongs on fast ground is unlikely to be his ideal set of conditions.

 

Stay Foolish is being aimed at the Prix de l’Arc, with connections favouring this race to give him five weeks to build towards Paris. For a a horse that only arrived in France 10 days ago, he can certainly be opposed at 6/4 or 11/8 this morning.

 

Jean-Claude Rouget’s Gylcon is similar in that he also looks better suited to trip in excess of 12 furlongs. He won this last year, but far more is needed on the bare form than a win over The Good Man and Sublimis. If Glycon wasn’t being trained at Deauville, I think he’d probably be scratched from today due to the fast ground like Iresine.

 

Andre Fabre’s Botanik made all in the trial for this and is a progressive four-year-old that is unbeaten over middle distances. He may have competition for the lead today from Stay Foolish, but Barzalona has said he is versatile and clearly has a soft spot for the son of Golden Horn.  Conditions today look ideal and he is a confident pick to score at odds of 3-1.

 

2.55pm Deauville – Botanik 3pts win @ 100/30 (William Hill, Paddy Power, Betfair Sportsbook, Sporting Index or 3-1 elsewhere)

How to get there

Train

The TER train from Paris St Lazare costs €34 to get to Trouville-Deauville station in 2 hours and 15 minutes. Unfortunately the train is not a high-speed TGV but then it means the tickets are cheaper and you still avoid the mad August traffic if able to leave the car behind. Once in Deauville, everything is a short walk and there are plenty of taxis.

Fly

There are flights to Deauville St. Gatien, but these tend to be very seasonal and now the route is a big Covid-19 casualty. Direct flights have run from London City and Bournemouth airports in recent years.

Ferry

Brittany Ferries has crossings from Portsmouth to Le Havre in under six hours. From Le Havre, it is a 50 minute drive.

Drive

One of the easiest ways to get to Deauville as a group is by car. Take the Channel Tunnel to Calais and then hug the coastal motorway. The drive from Calais to Deauville is three hours and there is rarely traffic.
