Deauville Tips - Sunday 29th August

Race 1 - Prix de Meautry Tips

Duhail returns to France after a cracking effort in the Sussex Stakes at Glorious Goodwood. Although he may be the classiest horse in the field, I'm not sure whether he's the quickest, and being drawn up in 12 probably won't aid his cause.

Britain are well-represented here, and the one I fancy is LIGHT REFRAIN, for William Haggas and the Queen. Things didn't go to plan in the Phoenix Sprint last time out, but Tom Marquand's mount handed Vadream a lengthy beating when winning the Summer Stakes two starts ago and she can bounce back to form in this competitive affair.

Race 2 - Prix Quincey Tips

Haggas and Marquand will fancy their chances again here with Johan, who'll attempt to make all from stall one. I'm tempted to take an each-way punt on CHARLESQUINT, who's won two of his five starts so far this season.

Gregory Benoist's mount faded a little in the closing stages as Magny Cours beat Raabihah in the Prix du Pays d'Auge last time out, but he boasts winning form on decent ground and this drop back to a mile should really suit.

Race 3 - Grand Prix de Deauville Tips

This race has been used as a trial for the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe in the past, but I doubt whether anyone in this year's field would make the grade for that historic race. We still have an exciting race to watch nonetheless, and the one I'm keen to back is SUBLIMIS, who's enjoyed a consistent campaign this far.

Andre Fabre's charge has been butting heads with the recently retired former Arc runner-up, In Swoop for most of the season, beating his rival in the Prix Lord Seymour before successive defeats at Longchamp and Chantilly. 

Sublimis ran on well for third behind two decent rivals in the Prix Radio over 14 furlongs last time out. Mickael Barzalona's mount looked a little stretched over that extended trip, though, and he should relish this drop back to a more suitable distance.
