We’ve been the victim of some bad luck in the last few days with some of our selections receiving strange rides and plenty of horses finishing runner-up at big prices. 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 and bet using the buttons below.

BRIGANTINE (12.00 Moulins, 7f)

In a weak race it could be worth siding with Brigantine, who ran well to finish fourth last time after being badly hampered around the home turn before finishing strongly over a sprint trip last time.

Return to seven furlongs should suit and there should be improvement to come. Won in October so knows how to get her head in front and has been consistent of late. Should run well.

BO PAPA (13.41 Moulins, 1m3f)

Has run far better than finishing positions of 098 suggests in his last three runs and should run really well dropped in class here.

Won well five starts ago over this trip on heavy ground and travelled really well on his first start back after a 98-day break.

Interesting to note his last win came in his second start back after a break in November so form profile reads well here.

AMAZONYA (14.49 Moulins, 1m3f handicap)

Sent off joint favourite for a handicap at Lyon-Parilly last week and was badly hampered when trying for a run up the rail before finishing eighth.

Had earlier finished a good fourth behind Souveraine Elusive, who has since won again, so this filly’s form looks solid and a valuable 7lb is claimed off her back by Axelle Nicco. She rates the bet of the day

SKY POWER (16.35 Bordeaux,  7f)

Form ties in closely with the favourite in this race but this horse is a far bigger price and looks value.

Looked to be full of running in a Listed race at Longchamp on his first start of the season a couple of weeks ago and that run looked to show plenty of promise for the months ahead.

Olivier Peslier has been booked for the ride, which is a bonus, and at the likely prices he makes plenty of appeal.
