Who To Follow At Longchamp on Sunday - 04/10/20

Horse To Follow - Alpine Star

The Group One Prix de l'Opera sees a star studded line up of fillies heading to post and Alpine Star for Jessica Harrington looks an interesting runner at 4/1.

The filly has been a breath of fresh air for the yard this term making her seasonal debut at Royal Ascot in the Group One Coronation Stakes and beat a decent field comfortably.

Off the back of that she was a narrow second to Fancy Blue in the French Oaks and that form looks extremely strong with Donnacha O'Brien's filly since going on to land the Group One Nassau Stakes.

Alpine Star also franked that Prix de Diane form running a stormer behind the unbeaten Palace Pier in heavy conditions and that looks some of the best form on offer.

Trainer To Follow - Andre Fabre

The master French trainer Andre Fabre always has a good time of things across the Arc weekend at Longchamp and we are backing him again to have some nice winners.

Fabre has a handful of nice runners on Sunday, especially in the Prix de la Foret where he fields his stable star Earthlight who looks sure to run a big race in the Group One.

The handler has been in superb form in the lead up to the weekend with 11 winners from 31 runners which sees him pose a strike rate of 35.48%.

Jockey To Follow - Christophe Soumillon

Another French specialist that has landed nearly all the big races in his home country is Christophe Soumillon, who again has picked up some decent rides on Sunday.

In the first race of the day the jockey will be on board the British raider Nando Parrado who has a huge chance on heavy ground and he will also ride the Epsom Derby winner Serpentine in the Arc.

At Longchamp Soumillon has a superb record during his whole career running at a 21% strike rate having 257 win and 336 places from a total of 1225 rides.
