We were on the mark with Fantastic Spirit at Bordeaux on Saturday and we’re back with some fantastic France Racing Tips from Deauville on Sunday.

Our experts have spent their weekend studying the form and watching replat after replay to provide you with the best French Racing Tips on offer. So take a look at our fancies and bet using the buttons below.

LADY WALLI (13.35 Deauville, 1m handicap)

Bolted up in a decent handicap three starts ago at Saint-Cloud under top jockey Pierre-Charles Boudot and was unlucky in running on her penultimate start. 

Lady Walli can be forgiven a poor run in heavy ground on her final outing last season and returns to the track here after a 206-day break.

Fitness has to be taken on trust but she is making her first start for trainer Andrea Marcialis, who has saddled five winners in the last four days, and he has gone to the trouble of booking another top jockey in Maxime Guyon for the ride.

WAREGA (14.15 Deauville, 1m handicap)

Ran away with a mile handicap at Maisons-Laffitte in October and was kept on the go through the winter in France over shorter distances until the lockdown was announced in March.

Was noted staying on strongly in her last two starts and looks to be crying out for a return to this trip. 

Regular rider Jeremie Monteiro has been replaced this time around by Christophe Soumillon and the horse goes well fresh, which makes her a cracking bet.

ASTURIAS ROAD (14.50 Deauville,  5f handicap)

Plenty of runners in this race appear to be at their best over further so it might be worth taking a chance on confirmed sprinter Asturias Road to bounce back to form.

He ran better than the form figures suggest on his first run after a break a couple of months at Chantilly a fortnight ago, not getting the clearest of runs towards the end and his previous efforts tie in closely with likely favourite Ribot Dream.

He’s another horse whose regular partner has seemingly been jocked off for a big name in Mickael Barzalona, who can hopefully steer him home in front.

HOLDTHAISGREEN (15.25 Deauville, 1m7f Group 3)

The highlight on the Deauville card is the Prix De Barbeville, which features a couple of Group1 performers in Holdthaisgreen and Call The Wind.

The latter, trained by Freddy Head, won a huge prize in Riyadh a couple of months ago under Olivier Peslier and is likely to go off a long odds-on favourite, but at the prices the value looks to lie with Holdthaisgreen.

He is more likely to appreciate the underfoot soft conditions and is likely to be hard to pass in his attempt to make all. 

It’s also worth noting that he possesses form figures of 111217121 when returning from breaks of more than 54 days so he goes well fresh.
