La Teste De Buch Tips and Racecourse Guide

La Teste De Buch is one of the strongest provincial tracks in France, benefitting from its proximity to powerful trainers such as Jean-Claude Rouget, Francois Rohaut and Didier Guillemin on the flat and the Royan jumps training base.

La Teste De Buch is located near Bordeaux and attracts plenty of international visitors as it is the site of the Osarus Sales House, which tends to throw up cheaper yearlings than Arqana.

The summer highlight is the Critérium du Bequet for juveniles. The race can be overshadowed by subsequent contests in Paris and Normandy, but it has produced a couple of Group One horses recently. 2016 winner Spain Burg went on to land the Rockfel Stakes at Newmarket, beating Frankel filly Fair Eva. 2013 winner Noozhoh Canarias went on to fly the flag for Spain at the highest level, finishing 2nd in the Jean-Luc Lagadere and sixth in the 2014 2000 Guineas behind Night of Thunder.

La Teste de Buch Horse Racing Tips Today – 10/04

Nabucco Al Maury is favourite for the Arabian maiden at La Teste this lunchtime, but he looks wildly overpriced still at 11/4.

 

When last seen in France he finished a head behind a recent G1 placer, in a G3, off level weights. On that form alone he should be much shorter than 11/4 for todays maiden, for all that the bridge between being a maiden winner and a Stakes Arabian horse isn’t as vast as with thoroughbreds.

 

It’s his last run which really makes him a knocking bet though. He raced enthusiastically through a $500k stakes race in Qatar, looking like he’d get involved for a podium finish and instead getting stuck in a box at a crucial stage. He wasn’t asked for a full effort and was narrowly denied 5th. Soumillon won that race and actually credited Peslier’s horse with putting the race on a plate for him!

 

Nabucco’s low draw and his positive running style will be an asset, and I expect Peslier to leave all the mid-race chaos well behind once he breaks. By contrast his market rivals are drawn 11 & 15 and have a fair bit to find on bare form. I’m confident that Nabucco Al Maury will go very close for us and he’s a great bet at the prices this morning.
