11:15 Des Cyclamens Maiden Stakes (Lyon-Parilly) - Hopeful Melody
By Havana Gold, the Aurelien Lamaitre trained filly was sent off as a 13/2 outsider on debut at Chantilly over 5f two weeks ago and impressed is what she did.
Ridden prominently, she ran on really nicely but unfortunately couldn’t find a way past the eventual winner to finish second by a head.
This looks like a more than winnable maiden for her and she’s the one to beat on form here.
19:20 La Megisserie Stakes (Parislongchamp) - Just In Love
Our first and only pick from Parislongchamp comes in the 19:20 La Megisserie Stakes with the Marian Falk Weissmeier trained JUST IN LOVE standing out for us.
Sent off at 12/1 at Clairefontaine in October, the daughter of Group 1 winner Dabirsim found a gap and stayed on really well on the heavy ground to win by a short head.
She gets similar ground once again here on her first start in 2021 and she could potentially be a type for ground with a bit of give in it.
