The claiming chase at Fontainebleau (12.25pm) may be worlds away from Cheltenham in terms of quality, but it does offer up a good bet in Yannick Fouin’s Call Gregorium.
He was pulled up over hurdles in a competitive handicap at Auteuil last time, but that was his first run for a couple of months and Fouin’s team were still quiet. However, he is in much calmer waters here, is back over fences (over which is is higher-rated and has won 2-6, as opposed to 0-9 over the smaller obstacles) and the yard are just coming into form, with four of their last five runners finishing in the first two.
He gets plenty of weight off main form danger C’est l’Heure and the de Lageneste team are still running a little below-par at present.
12.25pm Fontainebleau – 1pt win Call Gregorium @ 7-1 (Paddy Power, Betfair, BetVictor)
