We’ve been in good form with our France selections on the Flat in the last few weeks and we’re switching our attention to the jumps today.

Our experts  have continued to study the videos and all the form to provide you with the best French Racing Tips on offer. So take a look at our fancies at Clairefontaine on Saturday and bet using the buttons below.

SAWSAN SENORA (14.15 Clairefontaine, 2m2f handicap hurdle)

Disappointed on her final start last season when favourite for a hot handicap hurdlebut we shouldn’t pay too much attention to that as it was simply too bad to be true.

She had been successful in her previous run at the track and it’s worth noting that the form of her previous win has stacked up well with the runner-up and third subsequently winning.

That win came at this track so we know that she acts well around this course and if she’s fit after a 228-day break she could go well.

CAPODIMONTE (14.50 Clairefontaine, 2m2f hurdle)

Made his debut 19 days ago and finished an eyecatching fifth after travelling well and staying on strongly at the death at Compiegne.

The only horse to have competed in that race to since run was third-placed Garkapstar who bolted up at Pau earlier this week, which gives the form an early boost.

With improvement expected to come from that initial improvement Capodimonte should be capable of going close.

MONDURA (15.25 Clairefontaine, 2m2f handicap hurdle)

Fell through no fault of her own after being badly hampered by another rival in a decent race at Compiegne in March.

Was travelling and jumping well at the time of that mishap and suspicion is she would have have run a big race.

Was at her best on better ground on the Flat and the ground should be far from bottomless here and she can be expected to go well.

EDALKA DE KERSER (16.00 Clairefontaine,  2m3f handicap chase)

Travelled like the best horse before emptying out late on over 2m5f on her first start for more than a year at Auteuil last time.

Plenty of improvement expected from that comeback run and she was competitive in races far stronger races than this last year.

With the signs suggesting she retains her ability she can be fancied to make a return to the winner’s enclosure here.
