Francis-Henri Graffard’s yard is enjoying a good start to the 2019 season and a hat-trick at Maisons-Laffitte on Thursday has set him up nicely for French 1,000 and 2,000 Guineas weekend that is rapidly approaching, in which he will be saddling the cleverly-named Watch Me in the Poule d’Essai des Pouliches, writes Liz Price.  

The classic season arrives nearly too early for French-trained horses, who seem to take a little longer to get into their stride than their British counterparts. Hence, it was only in the second week of May last year that the Al Shaqab Racing-owned fillies Wasmya and Bowled Over made themselves known to the world with impressive victories in two maiden races.

The four-year-old The Revenant on the other hand, has already made waves by winning both of his starts this season and could very well come over to Royal Ascot in June to run in the Group 1 Queen Anne Stakes.

Since he started training in Chantilly in 2011, Francis-Henri Graffard has been a regular in pattern races and this season seems no exception.
