FRENCH RACING TIPS

We’ve been in top form with our selections from France in and we’re aiming to continue bashing the bookies at Vichy on Wednesday. Our experts have studied 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.

TERRE DE FRANCE (12.10 Vichy, 1m2f )

Went close to winning a handicap on decent ground at Cagnes-sur-Mer three runs ago and has put in two decent efforts since, notably when catching the eye a couple of weeks ago at Saint-Cloud.

Drops into claiming company here and his last venture into that grade was successful in October under Maxime Guyon and it’s interesting to note that Guyon is back aboard him here.

ORANGEFIELD (12.50 Vichy, 5f handicap)

It’s not often we put up a nine-year-old to win a decent handicap but that’s what we’re doing in the shape of Orangefield.

He’s a specialist sprinter and loves Vichy, winning two of his three starts over course and distance and was good enough to win a valuable Longchamp handicap in June last year.

Showed he retains ability when travelling really strongly before being unable to get a run on his first run for 181 days at Chantilly two weeks ago and he looks overpriced at double-figure odds.

LA MIRADA (14.35 Vichy, 5f handicap)

Finished third in a decent handicap at Chantilly a fortnight ago and that was a cracking run considering that she badly missed the break.

It’s notable that the horse who finished one place behind her that day came out to win a sprint handicap on his latest start this week so the form looks particularly solid and she should have every chance of recording a win if breaking on terms this time around.

ACHILLE DES AIGLES (15.10 Vichy,  5f handicap)

Finished sixth on his first run for three months at Chantilly a fortnight ago. The field split into two on that occasion and Achille Des Aigles won the race on the unfavoured side.

That suggests his run should be upgraded and he’s already a course-and-distance winner having spreadeagled his rivals to win a soft-ground handicap by three lengths in August last year.

Expect him to improve massively on his last run.
