In the Class 2 contest at Longchamp today, 100/30 Lev has been highly-touted but has disappointed outside of maiden company and was dropped 2kg by the handicapper for his last run in today’s grade.
Jean-Claude Rouget’s Zarafa has a nice pedigree but is winless on all three starts this season and is hard to fancy at 100/30 on the back of a three-month break.
5-1 Star Rock returned from a four-month absence last month in behind Race Sharp tip Pervade on his first start for Mikel Delzangles. If he runs to his rating of 42.0 he has a chance, but I think he still has a bit to find to get to that mark and it seems likely he had an injury earlier this year, as he remains lightly-raced. It’s interesting that he hasn’t won since breaking his maiden on the polytrack, as his half-brother Coachello is a polytrack specialist who hated soft turf in France. Good to soft at Longchamp may not be ideal for Star Rock.
Miss Blue Sky is the pick for Andre Fabre at 7/2. The Shamardal filly held Classic entries this spring and came back from a four-month break to land a maiden on her third career start. Unfancied at 5-1 for that Clairefontaine maiden, she travelled in the style of a filly that will be at home in today’s grade and there could be more to come, as she appears scopey.
When Andre Fabre skips grades, such as entering a maiden in a Class 1 or a maiden winner in a Black Type contest, we should all take note. Miss Blue Sky had a Listed entry this month and also holds an entry in the Group Two Daniel Wildenstein on Arc Weekend.
She will need to find a small bit of improvement to win, but if she can run to at least 40, getting 3lb from the colts, she will go very close to winning today.
2.53pm Longchamp – 2pt win Miss Blue Sky 7/2 (all firms)
