15:20 Fontainebleau - Ahmed Pride (5/2)

A really intriguing handicap affair sees 14 go to post in the Fontaine Desire Handicap this afternoon and we've picked out the Christophe Plisson trained AHMED PRIDE.

Half brother to 2006 Champion Stakes winner PRIDE, he hasn't had it easy so far in his career picking up two victories from 54 career runs to date however arguably his best run in that period came last time out in a two length victory at Saint-Cloud.

His best form of late has come over this distance with two second placed finishes and that victory from his last three runs.

Those three runs have come on his only three starts with Yoann Rousset doing the steering and they team up once again here as he looks to continue the Indian Summer of his career.
