3.30 Chantilly: Prix De Barbeville
This trappy staying race sees 3 of the first 4 placings in the Prix Right Royal, in Holdthasigreen, Kloud Gate and Trip To Rhodes take each other on again.
Of those, it is Trip To Rhodes that appeals most as a great each-way bet at the prices. He finished fourth in that race at Deauville, just 30 days ago but is fancied to get closer with a under his belt, and at a nice price of 14/1 with Corals. He is just marginally the highest rated in this field and he is incredibly consistent, having finished no worse than fourth in his last nine races, going back to 2014. He finished third in this race last year, against much better opposition and will also appreciate todays good ground, he shouldn’t be far away at the finish, at a cracking each-way price.
The fairly unexposed Travelling man looks the most obvious winner if he handles the step up from 12 furlongs to this extended 15 furlong race. He is currently 5/1 with Bet365, but the market leader on the PMU at 3.7.
