Nancy Tips and Racecourse Guide

Nancy Racecourse plays host to around 15 meetings each year, including flat, jumps and trotting.

The flat course is a 1600m right-handed loop and due to the attritional weather in north-eastern France, the going is often very soft.

Nancy can hold 700 spectators, making it one of the smaller tracks to host PMU meetings.

It had to be totally rebuilt in the 1950s after it was heavily affected by World War Two.

In 2021, Chantilly trainer Nicolas Clement used Nancy as a springboard for his future Group-placed three-year-old, Caprice Des Dieux.

Monsieur Emile is a longstanding maiden, but he has conditions in his favour and looks a fair bet at 14-1 in the second division of the 1m2f handicap at Nancy (11.35am).


He faded on his reappearance from a four-month break at Lyon three weeks ago, but he needed a break on his return from a midsummer break last year, and went on to finish second here on his next start.


His course record reads 2422, all in handicap company, and he loves heavy ground.  He was runner-up in the first division of this race last year off a 5kg higher mark, represents a yard in form and if he can break well (flag starts today) he is capable of running a big race.

The Grand Steeple-Chase de Nancy is limited to horses rated 59 or lower over fences, but it is a competitive contest, as you would hope for the money (over €23,000 to the winner). The Lageneste/Macaire team have landed the last two runnings of this (including for this...

There isn't a great deal of recent form to go on in the 7f claimer at Nancy (5.00pm), and I'm keen to take on Khatoun, who heads the market. He was beaten by Why Chope (who re-opposes, but is poorly drawn in stall 14) on similar terms last time, and this looks a...

A tough punting card at Nancy this morning, but Sidona looks a bit of value in the Class 3 conditions contest (10.20am). She hasn't been at her best on her last couple of starts, fading after making the running at Lyon last time on her first start since December. ...

I'm taking a bit of a chance given his recent form, but Jerome Reynier has found a very weak claimer at Nancy for Cap Rocat and at the morning prices, he is worth chancing. The eight year old has struggled in recent starts, but a fourth off a mark of 36 in a turf...
