3 8-6

Only career success from eight starts came in a claimer at the beginning of July. Game third in a class 1 at Le Lion d'Angers last time out and can pop-up

Frame historical data/form

An impressive winner of her re-entry run at Saint-Malo (6) ESSON has obviously plenty more to offer and should prove a difficult nut to crack. She stays the trip and handle the fast ground as well as the tight turns so definitely makes a lot of appeal. (1) VIRKA has been given some needed time off after her flop at Vichy and is not one to be ruled out.

Looks hard to make a case for on paper and would cause a massive upset if he happened to make the frame

Don Du Ciel historical data/form

(1) BOEING DU BARA is very effective over this very specific course and should go very close to winning but the well-experienced (2) ROSABI looks a serious rival to the selection and will probably take a power of beating. (3) CENAME RED and (5) JEJEKARAD are two useful performers in this discipline but need to find a few lengths to win.

(5) FURIOUS DES AIGLES has run well in better races than that in a not so distant past and finds himself under a very good mark at present. He could well bounce back to form and gets a tentative vote. (9) BABEL'S BOOK's last run was far too bad to be true. He should be a major player if he is back to himself today.

Cosi Fan Tutte 94

gre f Fragrant Mix - Magnolia De Toury (Dom Alco)

7 10-7
 - 

Hard to fault in both disciplines. Off since June but has run well fresh before and is one to be closely monitored

Cosi Fan Tutte historical data/form

Francois Nicolle is very well-armed in this contest with both (4) POLYGAME and (2) C'EST LE BOUQUET. The former has not run over fences this season but he has some serious credentials in this branch of the game and can be preferred to his stablemate. (1) FROSTY LAKE is literally transformed when he races at Craon and should be a big player too.

(3) WAHIB is on a long losing run but he was not beaten that far in his most recent starts and could get back in the winners enclosure today in what looks a modest contest. (2) FOLLE PASSION remains the highest rated horse in the race and cannot be overlooked. (5) PLUME DU HOULEY and (1) GOLD D'AZE can pick up some money.
