Two Group 1s at ParisLongchamp today, the first of them being the Prix Saint-Alary (2.45pm), in which Place Du Carrousel can add a third win of the campaign.
Andre Fabre has only won this race twice this century (though he has won it a total of eight times), but Place Du Carrousel impressed at Saint-Cloud last time and can take another step forwards.
Ridden prominently when shedding her maiden tag at Fontainebleau in April, she was held up last time out. She looked to have a bit to do turning in, but lengthened well entering the final furlong and was well on top at the line.
She is the first foal of Traffic Jam, who did nothing but improve and went on to score at Group 2 level for Nicolas Clement as a four year old. Place Du Carrousel looks sharply progressive in her own right and can land a top-level success today.
RECOMMENDED BET: 2.45pm ParisLongchamp – Place Du Carrousel win @ 11/4 (most firms, 3-1 in places)
