Lyon La Soie Tips and Racecourse Guide

Lyon La Soie is one of Lyon’s two city racecourses and is located in the north. With no turf circuit, Lyon La Soie plays host to flat racing on the polytrack as well as trotting racing on the inner circuit.

Flat racing takes place from September to May, often under floodlights. The racecourse is joined to the Carré de Soie shopping centre, featuring a magnificent 14-screen Pathé cinema.

French Racing Tips – 09/04

The 3.42pm at Lyon provides a great opportunity for Jean-Claude Rouget’s Alessandro to return to winning ways having bumped into subsequent Group winner Pretty Tiger at Cagnes-sur-Mer. He has a wide draw to contend with this afternoon but is one of few in here that has confirmed black type ability and has race fitness on side.

Andre Fabre’s Parchemin is popular at 11/4 but still needs to step forward plenty on his Chantilly return and has to concede 2kg to the selection.

Francis-Henri Graffard likes Bois D’Argent but he is another that probably has better days ahead this season.

RECOMMENDED BET: 3.42pm Lyon La Soie – Alessandro win only @ 11/4 (various)

French Racing Tips – 27/02 Pt 2

The 1m1f maiden at Lyon lacks any strength in depth and morning favourite Black Wall gets another chance to shed his maiden tag.  However, he isn't the most straightforward and is worth taking on with Spell On You. The Niarchos-owned filly finished sixth on debut at...

French Racing Tips – 06/01

A couple of bets in the maidens at Lyon this evening, starting with Onzemai in the colts & geldings contest (5.45pm). The son of Dream Ahead looked in need of the experience on debut at Deauville in November, and was drawn in the car park for his second start at...

French Racing Tips – 22 December

We were unlucky not to collect on our Mathieu Pitart-trained runner yesterday, who unseated at the last when in front, but it was another example of how the yard's representatives come on for an initial run and I'm backing another of his at Lyon today. Broken Twin was...

French Racing Tips – 13 December Pt 2

One bet on the card at Lyon this afternoon, with Chuppy a really interesting contender in the 1m4f class 3. She is getting 8kg off the favourite (before that one's claim is taken into account), who is rated just 34, yet Chuppy was well supported when fifth on debut at...
