Ludella 39

bay f Rajsaman - Salon Musique (Black Sam Bellamy)

3 8-10
 - 

Won well first time out at Le Croise-Laroche in March but flopped in next start in a class 2. Others preferred

Ludella historical data/form

(3) BATTLE OF TORO seems to have a lot of class and will be a tough nut to crack in this Class 2 contest. In case the selection runs below-par the Aga-Khan-owned (1) SHENDAM could be the best alternative as he steps down in a grade. (4) FLAMBEUR always gives everything he has and should be in the mix.

 - 

Won a handicap last year and ran surprisingly well on re-entry at Longchamp recently. Looks interesting

Kourkar historical data/form

(1) DAME D'ID is still improving aged six and should be a big player despite the five pounds penalty after his last win at Lyon. (18) KOURKAR ran a big race last time out and is well-placed in the handicap. (7) ZANZIBAR seems to face an easier task than in his last two runs and should not be far off at the finish. (3) HEIR TO A THRONE and (2) A HEAD AHEAD are respected too.
