French Racing Betting Tips: Our trader eyes the Dieppe card
Our racing specialist Matt Trounce is on hand to preview the cards in France, featuring the Prix Romati at Dieppe.
Here are a few names to look out for in northern France on Friday …
Hell Boy is the is 4/11 favourite for the Prix Romati (13:07) and is aiming to back up his impressive chasing debut when last seen in March.
A classy hurdler for French Champion trainer Francois Nicolle, he was a Grade 3 winning hurdler and he made a seamless transition when winning over fences last time. With his ability of fences now proven, he should be very hard to beat.
He is a familiar name having started his career in the UK riding horses such as Diamond Harry but has since made France his home and carved out an extremely successful career.
In the opening race of the day, he teams up with Garrance Forever (10:30) who is looking to make it two wins from three starts.
She was just denied on her racecourse bow but made amends by winning last time out on the track.
Another warm contest is the Prix Melinoir (13:41) where David Cottin has few very interesting runners.
Pesk Ebrel was grade one placed as three-year-old and makes a comeback after nearly two years off the track.
Kobrouk is another one to watch on Friday having been plying his trade for Nicky Henderson the last two seasons. Kobrouk returns to France after his form tailed off and can be found in the 13:41.
