Spirou De Lune was successful over this CD on this day last year and though this handicap is a little tougher than the conditions race he won, he is still worth backing on his second start of the season.
That win came on reappearance, his first start for 11 months, and he went on to finish second and first in handicap hurdles at Fontainebleau and Compiegne off marks of 53, so just 0.5kg lower that today’s rating.
His front-running tactics are well-suited to this course, his trainer has commented that he has come on for the reappearance run at Clairefontaine last month, and Ludovic Philipperon is back on board.
Rolland could be in better form, but Spirou De Lune is the winner of four of his last 12 starts over hurdles in the past three years, he is a good sort in this grade and the 15/2 looks attractive.
11.22am Nancy – 1pt win, 0.5pt place Spirou De Lune @ 6/1 (all firms)
