One bet on the card at Lyon this afternoon, with Chuppy a really interesting contender in the 1m4f class 3.

She is getting 8kg off the favourite (before that one’s claim is taken into account), who is rated just 34, yet Chuppy was well supported when fifth on debut at Saint-Cloud back in March in a race won by the subsequent dual Group 1 fourth Sibila Spain.

Ferland has a fine record here, and he will be desperate to get a win into this beautifully-bred filly, who is a full sister to Wonderful Tonight.  Though off since that promising debut, she is unlikely to lack for fitness and this one-time French Oaks entry should go very close today.

4.02pm Lyon – 2pts win Chuppy @ 7/2
