Le Mans Tips and Racecourse Guide

Le Mans is a popular racecourse in the North West of France that is called locally ‘L’hippodrome des Hunaudières’.

Le Mans hosts flat turf racing and trotting races on an artificial surface. The racecourse has been progressively modernised and hosts nine meetings each year which are open to international off-course betting.

The racecourse is located a short walk from the legendary motor circuit, which hosts the annual Le Mans 24 Hours race.

Le Mans Horse Racing Tips Today – 15/05

The 3200m maiden at Le Mans (1.12pm) looks a very weak race and, though he is reportedly not at 100% fitness, Jour Polaire is still overpriced to make a winning reappearance.


A very useful performer over jumps, he was a Listed winner over hurdles at Auteuil 18 months ago and finished second there over fences in September in a good race.


The favourite should continue to progress, but was beaten by a 28-rated rival last time and that’s not much of a benchmark.  Idaten is the highest-rated, but his mark of 30.5 is modest and he was beaten by a stablemate of Jour Polaire’s last time, who is markedly inferior to our selection over jumps.
