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.

The highlight on the card at La Teste de Buch is a Listed for three-year-old fillies, contested by top stables including Henri-Alex Pantall, Andre Fabre and Jean-Claude Rouget.
Race Three at 11.35am is a tough race to call, with over half the field unraced, but the draw data points to those being drawn six or lower on this seven furlong course being at a slight advantage. Taking a juvenile with a bit of experience from a low draw looks a safe each-way play and the eye is drawn to Edouard Monfort’s Soul of The Nation, priced at 7-1 by all firms.
The Sioux Nation gelding was beaten a couple of lengths at Argentan last time out but had horses rated between 33.0 and 35.0 in behind. The Montfort yard landed the feature here yesterday and he rates as solid place material.
11.35am La Teste de Buch – Soul of the Nation each-way @ 15/2 (William Hill, Sky Bet, Sport Nation and LivescoreBet)
In the lucky last, Lou Warrior looks feasibly handicapped off 34.0 and represents the in-form Bruno de Montzey in-form yard. He won a handicap off 32.0 in February and has a good piece of recent form at the track. Adeline Merou is good value for her 3lb claim and it is strange the the 12-year-old Senor Charly is ahead of Lou Warrior in the early betting.
2.32pm La Teste de Buch – Lou Warrior each-way @ 8-1 (Betfair Sportsbook and Paddy Power, or 7-1 generally)

Favourite Flying Candy is best in at the weights in the 5.5f sprint (12.25pm), but she is dropping back in trip after a break and drawn widest, and at a bigger price I'm backing Mustaffiz. A well-bred three year old, purchased out of the Shadwell draft last autumn, he...
Polyrisk was tipped up in this column when runner-up at 33-1 last time out and though we won't be getting that price today, he is still worth backing. He travelled really well over course and distance last time and looked the likely winner approaching the last, only...
The three-year-old hurdle at La Teste (10.25am) looks a modest contest, in which the Francois Nicolle-trained, ex-flat performer Barrua is rightly favourite after scoring on hurdling debut. However, she carries a 4kg penalty for that success and while she is the...
A three-day meeting at La Teste kicks off this morning and I’m really keen on one of Didier Guillemin’s in the two-year-old claimer (1.25pm). Al Velocy could only finish tenth on debut here over 6f last month, but he ran much better than the result suggests, as he...
The juvenile hurdle at La Teste features a trio of Francois Nicolle-trained debutants at the head of the market, headed by the well-bred La Marche Bleue. However, with the exception of that one, it’s not a great race pedigree-wise and at 7-1, Joie D’Or is worth...
The class 2 at La Teste this afternoon (4.37pm) looks an ideal spot for Hometruths, who should return to winning ways today. She made a winning debut at Bordeaux in October on her sole start at two, beating Ondulee, who went on to finish second to Agave at Listed...
