France Horse Racing Tips – Best Bets At Saint-Cloud On Tuesday
FRENCH RACING TIPS
We’re looking to bounce back to form after a disappointing day at Chantilly on Monday but we’re still playing with our profits from last week after a string of fantastic winners.
Our experts are getting no sleep as they study all the runners in every race to provide you with the best French Racing Tips on offer. So take a loot at our fancies and bet using the buttons below.
MOUJIK (11.10 Saint-Cloud, 1m)
Won his only start as a juvenile when winning a maiden at Toulouse in October and has been off the track since so fitness has to be taken on trust.
Form of that maiden win looks solid, with the second, third and fourth having gone on to win subsequently – the runner-up has actually been successful at Listed level.
Fitness has to be taken on trust but if there is a potential star on show at this Saint-Cloud track today it could well be Moujik.
IGO (11.40 Saint-Cloud, 1m)
It’s easy to see why this filly has been off the track for ten months after looking at her last start, in which she looked to take a false step and appeared to finish distressed.
But her debut run lends plenty of hope that she has ability as she would have gone extremely close to winning with a clear run.
Her form figures of 70 clearly do not go close to showing the level of ability she possesses and she should go well on her return to the track for trainer Freddy Head.
MATANDAR (12.50 Saint-Cloud, 1m2f handicap)
We’re going with the top weight in this ultra-competitive handicap who appeals as the classiest type in this race.
He reverts to handicap company after finishing seventh at Listed level last time and it’s noticeable he raced all on his own on the far side of the racecourse. He was also sent off at just 9/2 to win that race at Cagnes-Sur-Mer, which is a sign of the ability he possesses.
Usually races at 1m4f but won his last start over this distance by eight lengths and often runs well after a break. One of France’s star riders Maxime Guyon is booked for the ride, which lends even further credence to his chances.
TORONADA (2.oo Saint-Cloud, 1m2f handicap)
Returns to the track after a break of 227 days nad this handicap is undoubtedly weaker than the ones she was contesting last year.
Ran consistently well and was unlucky not to pick up a couple of these big-field handicaps last season and we can forgive her last start in extremely soft ground at Longchamp on Arc weekend.
These good to soft conditions will be much more to her liking and she can run well if fully fit after a layoff.
