Ribcester fancied to see off home challenge in Sunday's Prix du Moulin

Ribchester – 11-10 with Betfair Sportsbook

This weekend sees some of the best Flat racing of the year in Britain and Ireland with Group 1 contests taking place at Haydock, Leopardstown and the Curragh. But there is also high-class action taking place on the other side of the channel at Chantilly in the shape of Sunday’s Prix du Moulin, one of the leading international races over a mile during the season.

Sponsored by Qatar, the race won twelve months ago by the Andre Fabre-trained Vadamos, is usually run at Longchamp but with that course undergoing extensive redevelopment at the moment it is the home of the French Derby which plays host for a second time. Ten horses stood their ground at the latest forfeit stage headed by the Richard Fahey-trained Ribchester who will attempt to get back on the winning trail following a below-par effort ( probably due to the soft ground ) when runner-up behind Here Comes When in Goodwood’s Sussex Stakes.

Godolphin’s impressive Queen Anne Stakes winner could be joined by another horse owned by that powerful enterprise with Marois runner-up ( behind stablemate Al Wukair ) Inns Of Court who is available at a standout 9-2 with Skybet. That horse’s handler Andre Fabre also has the option of running Deauville Group 3 scorer Lady Frankel, in an effort to give her great sire a first Group 1 victory, unless Eminent manages to complete the feat first on Saturday evening in Leopardstown’s Champion Stakes.

Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum, like Godolphin, is likely to be strongly represented with recent Hungerford Stakes winner Massaat and the Jean-Claude Rouget-trained Taareef. The former is as short as 5-1 with bet365 but a 10-1 chance with Paddy Power and Betfair Sportsbook, the same price currently on offer with most bookmakers about the latter who was ill-suited to the pedestrian pace when disappointing in the Marois last month. Rouget could be double-handed courtesy of third favourite Zelzal, an 11-2 chance with Skybet.

Harry Dunlop is expected to drop Robin Of Navan back in trip, saying: “ The plan is to run. We’re keen to try the mile.” Recent Haydock scorer Sea Of Grace is a possible for William Haggas while Deauville and Lancaster Bomber are still in the mix for the Ballydoyle stable of Aidan O’Brien.
