We were in fantastic form with ten winners in France last week, which resulted in more than £650 profit to £10 level stakes. Our experts have studied all the form and have listed their best France Racing Tips at Chantilly on Monday
SKALLETI (11.01 Chantilly)
Ha’s won nine of his ten races, including at Group level. Needs to give weight away to all of his rivals in this Group 3 racas a result of his Group 2 win in the Prix Dollar at Longchamp on Arc weekend. The drop back to a mile here would not suit in a slowly run race but there is plenty of reasons for thinking his stamina could come into play.
With at least three runners in the race likely to go from the front, Skalleti can stalk the pace and use his finishing kick to come through late. A previous win at Chantilly suggests the track should hold no fears and we hope he’s fit enough to do himself justice first time up this season.
KARLSTAD (12.50 Chantilly)
With doubts over the stamina of plenty of runners who are attempting this 1m7f trip for the first time it could pay to back a stout stayer in the shape of Karlstad, who has won twice at around this trip and not finished out of the frame in his last six handicaps.
Returns to the racetrack for 238 days but that could be viewed as a positive given that he goes well fresh, winning after a layoff of 138 days on his seasonal comeback last year.
Maxime Guyon takes the ride for Pia Brandt and Guyon has been in good form since Flat racing returned to France last week.
TAEKWONDO (1.23 Chantilly)
The Guyon/Brandt combination could record a quick double in both 1m7f handicaps courtesy of Taekwondo, who looks sure to improve for stepping up to this trip.
He appears to have disappointed in his last two runs but those came on the all-weather at Deauville and a return to the turf will suit, while he was earlier noted staying on strongly a number of times over trips at around 1m4f. Lending hope that this trip should be within his capabilities
FIAMELCA DOLOISE (1.56 Chantilly)
Has run far better than her finishing positions of eleventh and tenth suggests in her last two runs and a fast-run race over this mile threatens to suit her style of running.
We can expect her to be running strongly at the death in the hands of promising young apprentice Aude Duporte, who takes a valuable 6lb off her back and we’d expect her to have more behind her than in front of her on Monday
