Today’s best bet for Mont De Marsan can be seen below. Race Sharp offers free racing tips for all meetings at Mont De Marsan throughout the season.
We saw yesterday with Titanium that just three months off the track should be ringing alarm bells, so regular readers will find it curious that today’s best bet in France is a horse that hasn’t run since last October!
Smart sprinter O Trasno looks well overpriced today at 100/30 in what looks a match race in the provinces against Rouget’s Mon Bel Canto.
Mon Bel Canto kept the rating 43.5 for seven starts last year and didn’t progress out of Class 1 and 2 events. Conversely, O Trasno is rated 1lb higher and posted some stronger performances, including an easy Listed success at Deauville before filling a minor place behind Garrus in a Group Three.
The absence is of course a concern but his trainer reports him to be fairly fit whilst Rouget has said that Mon Bel Canto didn’t have the best of winters.
O Trasno escapes a penalty, has blistering gate speed and stable jockey Adeline Mérou claims 3lb.
If you’d like a safer bet, I couldn’t put you off 2-1 ‘without the favourite’, which I think is outstanding, but I’d be very happy to bet O Trasno this afternoon down to 6/4 in the regular win market.
