Deauville Tips - Sunday 22nd August

Race 1 - Prix Morny Tips

Asymmetric2:50pm Darley Prix Morny - Finale des Darley Series (Group 1) 6fGET 11/2 HERE
New customers only. 18+ T&Cs and wagering requirements apply.

Armor tops the betting here after running away with the Molecomb Stakes at Glorious Goodwood. I, however, was more taken with ASYMMETRIC's win in the Richmond Stakes the following day, and he can hand Alan King his second Group One of this flat campaign.

To find a clear path to the post from off the pace, Asymmetric had to muscle his way through a wall of horses ahead of him. Once Martin Harley's mount found clear air, he put that race to bed in good style, beating Khunan and Gubbass by half-a-length.

The only horse to have beaten Assymetric this season is Lusail, who won the Gimcrack at York earlier this week. Unlike Armor, King's raider is proven over this trip and the prospect of very soft ground won't phase King and his connections.

Race 2 - Prix Jean Romanet Tips

Thundering Nights3:25pm Darley Prix Jean Romanet (Group 1) 1m2fGET 4/1 HERE
New customers only. 18+ T&Cs and wagering requirements apply.

I'm keen to side with THUNDERING NIGHTS, after that brilliant performance in the Pretty Polly Stakes last time out. Joseph O'Brien's filly travelled smoothly throughout, opened up a lead at the furlong pole and held Santa Barbara at bay to land her first Group One.

When you consider Santa Barbara has won two Group Ones on US soil since then, to beat her when giving her 12 pounds has to be judged as a massive effort. Thundering Nights boasts some really useful form on ground verging on heavy, and I fancy she may be the one to beat.

Race 3 - Prix de Pomone Tips

Raabihah4:00pm Darley Prix de Pomone (Group 2) 1m4½fGET 6/4 HERE
18+ only. Ts and Cs apply. Gamble responsibly.

Following an impressive win in the Prix de Psyche here at Deauville last August, RAABIHAH jumped to the head of the betting for the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe. 

That remains the last time Jean-Claude Rouget's charge won, but Cristian Demuro's mount has been runnning well in defeat, finishing fifth in the Arc and a close second on all three of her starts this term. Having been touched off by Magny Cours over nine furlongs last time out, Raabihah should be much more comfortable over this extended distance and this looks the easiest task she's faced for some time.

Race 4 - Prix Kergorlay Tips

Skazino4:35pm Darley Prix Kergorlay (Group 2) 1m7fGET EVENS HERE
18+ only. Ts and Cs apply. Gamble responsibly.

This looks a fairly straightforward assignment for SKAZINO, who's won two pattern races this term and finished a close second behind Valia - who runs in the Prix de Pomone - last time out.

Red Verdon, who sits second in the betting, was beaten 20 lengths behind Skazino Prix Vicomtesse Vigier in May. Third-favourite Alkuin was also beaten 25-lengths by the favourite when they met in the Prix de Barbeville. Skazino should take all the beating.
