Plenty of interest at Longchamp today but I won’t have long to wait for my best bet on the card – Goliath in Race One!


Francis Graffard’s gelded son of Alderflug is back over ‘his distance’ today, in the words of the master trainer, and he’s been surprisingly overlooked in the betting.


Golaith’s form behind Horizon Dore at this course is top class and prior to that he won in this Listed grade with ease, attracting buckets of cash on Betfair beforehand.


Rashford will obviously like the ground and is race-fit, but his trainer is in poor form and he’s more exposed than the selection (9 career runs vs 4). Rue Biossonade hasn’t been missed in the market either but I’m not a fan of betting the fairer sex in contests like this in April and her trainer is also fairly quiet at the moment.


12.58pm Longchamp 1pt win Goliath @ 6-1 (all firms)
