I will be concentrating on the flat season for the moment. With no UK flat racing today and an all weather card at Dundalk, I have turned by attention to Longchamp in France, with 3 Group 3 races and the return of a couple of familiar faces to the race course…

1.35… Prix De Fontainebleau.. Group 3… 3YO Only… 1m…

Persian King… The Kingman colt, who is trained by Andre Fabre makes his seasonal return after being last seen winning the 1m Autumn Stakes(Group 3) at Newmarket in October. The win that day was by a neck from Magna Grecia, who won the Futurity Stakes at Doncaster. Persian King had already won twice last September at Chantilly prior to heading to Newmarket…

There is UK interest in this race with Paul Cole sending Duke of Hazzard, who is a Deauville 1m Listed winner by 1 & 1/2 lengths when last seen on October 24th…

2.50… Prix De La Grotle… Group 3… 1m…

Lily’s Candle is likely to go off Favourite for this race having won the Group 1 Prix Marcel Boussac(Fillies’) over C&D back on October 7th before a below par run in the Breeders Cup Juvenile Fillies’ when finishing 12th to Newspaperofrecord..

I prefer Rocques, who was a 2 length 6th to Lily’s Candle in the Marcel Boussac having landed a Group 3 over C&D in the D’aumale Stakes last September and prior to the defeat the Lawman Filly was 3 from 3 starts and I think that was a blip….

4.35… Prix Noailles.. Group 3… 3YO Only… 1m 2f 96yds…

Slalom… Not seen for 158 days after winning on the All Weather at Chantilly by 1/2 a length back in November over 1m 1f. That was the Intello Colts second run having won on race course debut in a 1m Clairefontaine maiden by a short head and now steps up in grade…

UK interest in this race with Joe Tuite sending Surrey Thunder, who was a runner up in a 1m Listed  at Saint-Cloud by a short head on March 26th to Talk or Listen having stepped up from landing a Windsor Class 5 1m Novice Stakes back in October by a head…
