French Flat

Recommended Posts

Turf flat horse racing will be taking centre stage soon enough

Two Unraced horses trained by Andre Fabre could be worth keeping an eye out for

Orbaan  Was with Roger Varian as a 2yo, and colt is now considered listed class at worse by new stable

Sidewalk  Godolphin filly who has pleased over the winter

Update

Orbaan is pleasing connections and should be running sometime in early April

Problem is, mate, is that with the Par-Mutuel deductions in the win pool in excess of 30% betting on French racing on which UK bookmakers do not offer prices is a mug's game

Runs at 11.40am

Taken the opening 7-4, currently 6-5

Ball breaker as just worn down close home to finish 2nd

A run full of promise though, as travelled into the race like a dream.

Money lost today, but confidence is high that he will win decent races this season

Orbaan reappears today at Maisons-Laffitte (2.20)

Very interesting that Silvestre de Sousa goes over to ride.

Opening show this morning of even money has gone, and horse is currently trading at odds on.

Not Barzalona's finest moment, got the horse in a pocket and when trying to get out clipped heels and almost fell

Race over, unplaced @ 2.8!

Good to see Orbaan back in action today at Longchamp (4.35)

3-1 might be generous if returning fit after long break

Only 4th that day but interesting that since the race Orbaan has been sold and then gelded.

Is now in this country under the care of handicap maestro David O'Meara and is being targeted at next months Lincoln, if he turns up the current 20-1 will look big

Lincoln was cancelled but the horse makes his debut for new connections at Newmarket on Sunday [1.35]

9-1 first show
