Teaplanter looks at the French Meeting today at Maisons Laffitte and he likes the look of 11/2 Zariyma.
Maisons Lafitte 2:55
There is plenty of action in the UK today on the Bank Holiday, but the French racing throws up what looks a very interesting bet today.
Redcold heads the market for this fillies conditions race over a little more than 10 furlongs and with a rating of approximately 90, she should take plenty of beating. However she has now raced 4 times and was put well in her place last time and she makes limited appeal at the odds.
The horse that is of great interest here is the once raced Zariyma for Alain De Royer Dupre. She made her debut at this venue just over 2 weeks ago and she showed a great deal of promise when finishing 4th to Jollify. In that contest she was trapped against the rails for much of the straight and could not really build any momentum. When she did get out the leaders were gone beyond recall and David Andree Surveillant simply nudged her out to the line. However under a considerate ride she did make nice progress in the final furlong and she left the clear indication that she would benefit a lot from the outing. She does have to reverse form with Dorset Dream who was 2nd, but she looks very much like she can improve past that rival and she is potentially a very decent middle distance in the making.
The ground will be quite testing, but as a daughter of Authorized, this should not be an issue. Alexis Badel takes over today and she looks very decent value here at 11/2.
1.5 points each way Zariyma at 11/2 with Bet365, William Hill and Betfair Sports
