I think a couple at the top of the market are short enough in the 1m4f AQPS bumper at Craon (11.20am) and at a bigger price, Izmir makes each-way appeal.
She showed promise when fourth in heavy ground at Vichy three weeks ago, finishing a length off today’s 6/4 favourite, who had the benefit of previous experience. She also finished just in front of Intensement, who re-opposes today.
A half-sister to a bumper winner last year for these connections, she looks a likely improver with that experience under her belt and the form of the Clayeux yard is a positive, with eight winners from their last 20 runners.
