A tough punting card at Nancy this morning, but Sidona looks a bit of value in the Class 3 conditions contest (10.20am).
She hasn’t been at her best on her last couple of starts, fading after making the running at Lyon last time on her first start since December. She’ll need to improve on that form to have a winning chance here, but with the favourite unproven on soft ground and the second-favourite having a first start in 18 months, this lacks strength in depth and the return to turf is a positive.
She was highly tried after winning a soft-ground maiden in Germany, running in four Listed events last term, and she still has a German mark that equates to a French mark of 40 (even though she is officially rated 33 in France).
Her yard hasn’t had many winners this term, but their horses are running well and Sidona looks a good bet to reach the frame at the very least.
10.20am – 1pt each-way Sidona @ 8-1 (PaddyPower, Betfair, Betfred, Betway, 15/2 elsewhere)
