bay f Ganymede - Poupette D'ombree (Dan Des Sarts)

3
 - 

Blows hot and cold but has ample ability. Reassured at Cordemais last time and looks competitive for a stake

Grande Galaxie historical data/form

Delicate he may be but (10) GIULIANO has shown excellent aptitude at this level and is more than capable of confirming his Graignes victory. Ernault is unlikely to have it all his own way though given how well (5) GETZ debuted at the same venue three weeks ago. Sanctioned on his only start here (6) GAUDEO more than redeemed himself at Angers last weekend and with application can go far. (7) GOLDEN VISAIS has talent in spades and if he turns could prove something of a spoiler.

Yet to get into her stride this term but Pellerot could not have asked for a better entry. Chance

Clara De Chenu historical data/form

Barring the occasional blip (11) DOLLAR GEDE has been in excellent shape of late and the nature of his recent Graignes success augurs well for the double. (12) DEVERIA showed her form under the saddle at Laval nine days ago and returns to the harness code with justified ambition. (16) CLARA DE CHENU has a good entry here and with application should put on a good show. Confirmed at a superior level (13) DRUSS DE GUEZ makes his first appearance since September but has front shoes off for the occasion and should not be underestimated. (4) CITRUS DE SOMMAIRE is no slouch at this level and can make up for his Cordemais disappointment.

Faithful servant for the most part but sanctioned on comeback. Shoes on this time and can make amends

Flash Love historical data/form

(9) FAARRON DE VIETTE may not be the most reliable horse here but he more than made amends at Le Croise Laroche last weekend and is capable of opening his 2019 account. There will however be resistance from the reinvigorated (4) FARANDOLA BELLA who acquitted herself particularly well here late last month. (1) FAKIR DU LUPIN was not far off the mark that day but is a quality element and can go closer this time. (7) FIRST DE TESS is still a delicate soul but with application will not be far off the mark.

Dream World historical data/form

Seldom disappointing these days (13) DAISY DU CLOS is presently at the top of her game and gets on well with her jockey. She may be starting on the second line but still looks good enough to hold off the better-placed and in-form (7) DIWEZH DE TREMAHOU who would have had the race in the bag here last month had he not faulted. (5) ESCAPE DE HOUELLE has ample ability and can go close if he takes to the Pontchateau profile. (12) EAUSTIE MESNILOISE benefits from an excellent entry and can make amends for her recent Graignes sanction.

Not the easiest of races to handicap but it is hard to ignore (6) EMERAUDE DU VIF who has been in good shape over the winter. She comes here fresh and even with shoes back on can still win an event of this nature. The erratic (11) EL NINA FLIGNY recently reassured at Cholet and is similar form can give her a run for her money. (3) ECU DU PARC alternates well between the two disciplines and showed his form despite the sanction last time out. Faithful most of the time (2) ELEGANT DE TESS left a good impression under the saddle at Challans and with Barrier at the helm will be assured every chance. (15) ENVOLEE DESTINEE is 25m worse off but in current form can play a good hand.

Expresso Good 19

bay c Prince Gede - Pretty (Jag De Bellouet)

5
 - 

Complicated but has no shortage of ability. Benefits from a good entry and going unshod behind can win a race of this nature

Expresso Good historical data/form

Three times a winner last season (14) EXPRESSO GOOD recently reassured in better company here and with hind shoes off this time looks the one to beat. Popot can however expect to encounter resistance from the tough (10) EVE DE LA MORTRIE who has won three of her last four. (5) EPICURE has been in good shape this year so far and going barefoot for the occasion will do his prospects no disservice. (11) ELEGANTE DE BAULON won at a lower level over course and distance a week ago and while unlikely to repeat should still give a competitive account.

bay g Treskool Du Caux - Souche Du Bon Air

Dynamic this year with four straight ridden wins. Incurs the penalty but still the horse to beat

Dahlia Du Bon Air historical data/form

Unbeaten this year in four starts under the saddle (14) DAHLIA DU BON AIR breaks on the second line here but is still expected to maintain her successful run. In her category this time (2) DIVINE DE L'ITON is 25m better off and looks a decent opponent. (10) CREPUSCULE FORGAN has not been firing on all cylinders lately but at this level of competition should not be far off the mark. (11) VRAG DINAMO showed marked improvement at Cordemais recently and must be afforded respect.
