S2-1/S2-7 (to be confirmed after declared starters announced)

1900m – Polytrack

Allez Henri

This veteran won a claimer over this course and distance in late 2019. Has generally struggled lately but wasn’t beaten far here earlier this month.


He did win over this course and distance back in 2019. Not short of stamina he would want a good pace to aim.

Brave Shiina

Not certain to last this trip, running out of gas when trying it here this month.

Come Say Hi

Has looked in good shape lately and battled hard to win a 1600m soft-ground handicap here. He also has some good form on Deauville’s polytrack surface.

Forbidden City

Has lots of experience here at Deauville, his last eight starts coming over this course and distance – all good efforts including a victory. Should again perform well here.

Frosty Bay

His last win came over this course and distance last year but has largely struggled including here recently.


A smart handicapper on her day and she won a turf handicap at this meeting in 2019, also running a close second in a 2000m turf race here this month.

Gorock Of Saints

The winner of two of his eleven starts, both over further than this at Lyon. Quite fancied according to the betting at this track last time, but he faded out.

Goya Senora

Has proven winning form over this course and distance. Started favourite for a handicap over this course and distance this month but on that day underperformed.

Green Curry

Has a good record on Deauville’s polytrack surface, winning over this trip here last year and also running a really good third here earlier this month. Chance.


Won a handicap at a minor track earlier in the year, but hasn’t made an impact here on his last two starts.


She justified favouritism when winning over 2000m on a slow turf surface at Lion earlier this year.


Last two runs have been highly contrasting efforts over this course and distance, easily landing a shock win in a handicap last month, prior to finishing last of 13 recently.


Has not made any impact in recent starts though at least his handicap mark is sinking and he did win a handicap over this course and distance last November.

La Gaeta

Her last win came this course and distance over a year ago. Some less good runs have followed but she is starting to look well handicapped.


Comes here in good form having won his last two starts. Effective at this trip and a past winner here. One to consider but his trainer was reluctant to run him in this.

Light Heart

Just once a winner but had a long spell off the track, coming back to make no show in a handicap this month.


Beaten 2.8L when a good fifth in a handicap here this month, one of his best runs since winning at Cagnes in January.

My Charming Prince

His three wins have come over shorter trips than this but wasn’t beaten far when seventh of 16 over this course and distance this month.

Nice To See You

A veteran handicapper who is dropping down the weights but is still struggling to get back to winning form.


A five-times winner but yet to score from six handicap runs at Deauville, and well beaten on recent starts.

Nour Dubawi

Some improved form lately, finishing third in a turf handicap at Longchamp and then winning at Saint-Malo over 1800m this month.

Out Of Town

At the top of her game on her last two starts, beating 12 rivals at Longchamp on turf and then a determined second in a course and distance handicap last weekend.


Most runs at the smaller tracks but has run well here at Deauville on a couple of occasions. But it will be a surprise if he is good enough to win this.


Has some good form over this course and distance, including a handicap victory last December, also running quite a good fourth here this month.

Poet’s Black

Bounced back from some modest efforts to come close to landing a shock win, second of 15 in a handicap here this month.


Ran modestly on his latest start, but may have needed the race after a break. Better form previously and has won at Deauville, but has been racing over further than this.

River Of Silver

Faded out in a handicap here this month, but would have chances if returning to the form that saw him easily win a handicap over this trip at Chantilly in May.

Sa Sal

Beaten in his last 11 starts, his last win coming off a higher handicap mark over 2000m at Lyon Parilly.


Ran on strongly to win a handicap over this course and distance earlier this month. Has a tougher task this time but respected from this stable.
