Our top tipster has a huge number of stats at his disposal and has highlighted the horses it should pay to follow in France today.
WALDGEIST (3.05 Longchamp)
The heart says Enable but the head says we need to take advantage of the each-way angle in the Qatar Prx de l’Arc de Triomphe (3.05). WALDGEIST will appreciate the likely decent gallop and his last five runs at Longchamp have produced four wins and a 6-1 fourth of 18 in this race 12 months ago when he was unlucky in running. His full record in his home country reads 1312251111411 (8-13) and he’s over three times the price he was last year.
SHADES OF BLUE (4.30 Longchamp)
Clive Cox landed the 2010 Prix de l’Abbaye de Longchanp Longines with a big-priced filly courtesy of Gilt Edge Girl in 2010 and perhaps lightning can strike twice with SHADES OF BLUE. The consistent three-year-old was beaten by a short neck over trip and track last time, doing clear best of those to race up with the pace. Her only other French excursion produced a win at Maisons-Laffitte and she’s yet to finish outside of the first three in her short career.
