Prix Guillaume d’Ornano betting tips – Gosden raider can confirm Classic form

The big race in France on Saturday is the 1m 2f Group 2 Prix Guillaume d’Ornano for three-year-olds at Deauville (13:35) where Classic form gets is put to the test.

Prix du Jockey Club hero Mishirff gets in without a penalty, so can confirm Chantilly placings. Trained by John Gosden, this Make Believe colt has done nothing but improve this season.

After a fine effort on dirt when runner-up in the Saudi Derby, Mishriff advertised his Classic claims with a four-length success in the Newmarket Stakes. The way he stayed on strongly in the final furlong suggested he was a cut-above Listed level.

That form is not too shabby either as the runner-up, Volkan Star, and fifth home, Al Aasy, have both won since. Mishriff then took the step up to Group 1 company in his stride with Classic glory.

Despite racing keenly and being denied a clear run after two out, he again stayed on strongly in the final furlong. Mishriff hit the front 100 yards from home and put the race to bed.

He was a ready 1 3/4 lengths in front of The Summit at the line, while the Jockey Club favourite Victor Ludorum was beaten a further neck in third.

Port Guillaume, who was fifth, has since come out and made a very impressive step up to 1m 4f. That gives the form a good look.

Mishriff now gets Frankie Dettori on board for just the second time. Connections clearly mean business, then, and the Prix Guillaume d’Ornano looks a nice opening for him to complete his hat-trick.

The Summit value over Victor Ludorum in Prix Guillaume d’Ornano

Those in-behind Mishriff from Chantilly re-oppose. Given that The Summit has twice finished in front of Victor Ludorum this season, he could be the main danger.

Henri-Alex Pantall’s charge has only won one of his four starts this season, but also ran cracking races in defeat. They include when denied by a head on reappearance at Saint-Cloud on unsuitable heavy ground.

The Summit then made all to win a Group 3 Classic trial at Longchamp. Although Victor Ludorum then reversed that form in the French 2000 Guineas, the tables were turned last time out.

Andre Fabre’s Godolphin colt hasn’t seen his race out on his other two outings this term. That has to be a concern.

While a neck difference isn’t much between the pair on their Jockey Club run, at the odds on offer The Summit appeals. For that reason, he is a match bet over Victor Ludorum to consider for the Prix Guillaume d’Ornano.

Prix Gontaut-Biron betting tips – Sottsass seeks win on Arc trail

In the other 1m 2f race, the Group 3 Prix Gontaut-Biron for older horses (14:50), Sottsass turns out under a penalty. Jean-Claude Rouget’s 2019 Prix du Jockey Club hero swerves the Juddmonte International at York for this.

Sottsass ran third in last year’s Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe and that event is once again his end-of-season target. Rouget feels that his Prix Ganay scorer is better served by dropping in grade here.

After shaping as though needing the run on reappearance last season, Sottsass notched a hat-trick. His ready two-length victory over Persian King at Chantilly in Classic company reads very well in the context of this.

The runner-up has since landed a Group 2 and a Group 1, so the form looks solid. Sottsass should also have little to fear from the re-opposing third, Motamarris.

Only Waldgeist and Enable, who has since won a third King George at Ascot, were too good for the four-year-old Siyouni colt in the Arc.

He again needed his reappearance run when turned over at odds-on by old rival Shaman, but Sottsass resumed winning ways last time out.

Although only scrambling home from the veteran Way To Paris by a head, the runner-up has found a new lease of life this season. The popular grey has since landed the Group 1 Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud.

The six rivals Sottsass faces in the Prix Gontaut-Biron all have questions to answer. Even though race terms are against him, he should be winning this if another tilt at the Arc is the goal.

Skalleti best of remainder

On his run behind Persian King last time out and record over the trip, Skalleti is the danger. Trained by Jerome Reynier, the five-year-old grey gelding won seven of his eight starts last season.

Skalleti was in the form of his life, posting a hat-trick of Group success at the end of the campaign. His run of seven consecutive victories saw him score on all types of going.

They include three victories over the Prix Gontaut-Biron distance. In the second of those, the Group 2 Prix Dollar on Arc weekend, Skalleti ran out three-quarters of a length too good for Mountain Angel.

The runner-up has since landed an ultra-competitive renewal of the Wolferton Stakes at Royal Ascot. Leo De Fury, beaten 3 1/2 lengths in fourth, won a Group 2 on reappearance.

That gives substance to the form. Skalleti has shaped as though this could be his optimum trip and Pierre-Charles Boudot is back on board.

Although only third on both his starts this term, they were over a mile. Skalleti looks the only real danger to Sottsass here.
