Betting

Forecast

Quel Destin (7/4), Fanfan Du Seuil (2/1), Elysees (11/4), Pilgrim Soul (14/1), Youmzain Star (16/1), Montestrel (20/1), Angel Of The North (33/1), Forgotten Promises (50/1), Molliana (100/1), Roser Moter (100/1)

Verdict

Never easy to assess the value of winning French hurdles form but it's usually decent and the penalised pair of FANFAN DE SEUIL and Quel Destin have already won there and could be decent recruits to the British ranks. Narrow preference is for Fanfan Du Seuil who is slightly less exposed. Elysees may well be the best of those with British Flat form and represents a top yard that does well with its dual purpose performers, while Pilgrim Soul looks the type to do well over timber and is worth adding to calculations, along with the interesting newcomer Montestrel.
  1. Fanfan Du Seuil
  2. Quel Destin
  3. Elysees
