Sexy Metro Can Stop the English Raiders in the Prix Robert Papin

1.35 Maisons-Laffitte

There may be only 5 runners in this year’s Prix Robert Papin, but it certainly looks a quality field with the Queen Mary winner Signora Cabello and the Norfolf Stakes runner-up Pocket Dynamo in opposition from England. While the Anglo-Irish juvenile sprinters usually hold the upper-hand in these races at this time of year, the home team looks very good with Sexy Metro and Simply Striking looking more than good enough.

Native American can take the Prix Eugene Adam

1.10 Maisons-Laffitte, Prix Eugene Adam

Louis Dor’s third place finish in the French Derby where he started at 66/1 is the best form on offer here. As good as his derby form looks he’s only won once in ten outings and I can’t have him at short odds in this trappy contest. John Gosden has a great record with his French runners and his Crossed Baton can’t be ruled out, but I’m going to side with the Christophe Ferland trained Native American. He hasn’t ventured in to group company until now but the manner of his recent wins have be impressive, although did throw in a below par effort when probably going off too fast in a minor race at Lyon-Parilly. If he can get his own way up front he can set a comfortable pace and try to steal it at a best priced 100/30 with Ladbrokes.

Trais Fluors Looks to Bounce Back to Form at Ascot

1.20 Ascot, Summer Mile Stakes

Andre Fabre sends a rare runner over to Ascot in Trais Fluors. His recent form hasn’t been great and quite a way below what he achieved last year but the fact Fabre is sending him over the channel has to be noted. He was group one placed last year and also registered three wins up to group 3 level. This will be the first time he has encountered ground on the firm side, but he is probably coming over in search of the better ground here and it could well see him bounce back here at 6/1.
