Race Overview

GALALITHE (5) has proven her form/well-being and competitiveness off her current mark in back-to-back handicaps last month (confirmed the improvement of her 4th at ParisLongchamp with a good 3rd at Nantes last time) and she ought to recapture the winning thread in this opening event with a repeat of either performance. TURTLE CHOPE (7), a three-time course winner, isn't hastily condemned after her Marseille-Borely failure and retains the means to pose a threat. LOVE AFFAIR (6), TO BE QUEEN (4), SECRET FEELING (3) and LONG STORY SHORT (10) are contenders for the remaining podium berth.
