Earthlight favourite for French 2,000 Guineas win

Tropbeau heads the betting for the French 1,000 Guineas

Earthlight has been placed as the new 7/2 favourite to win the French 2,000 Guineas at ParisLongchamp, with Tropbeau the 2/1 favourite in the 1,000 Guineas.

After Earthlight’s stablemate Victor Ludorum lost his unbeaten record on his seasonal return, the former favourite has been eased to 4/1 to victory in the colts’ Classic.

The surprise winner of the Prix De Fontaineblue, The Summit, is the joint third favourite to win alongside Alson and Ecrivain.

Coral’s David Stevens said: “Victor Ludorum had been a warm favourite for the French 2,000 Guineas ahead of his seasonal reappearance, but a third-place finish when odds-on at Longchamp has seen his fellow unbeaten Andre Fabre-trained colt, Earthlight, replace him as Classic favourite.”

In the French 1,000 Guineas, Tropbeau has had her odds shortened to 2/1 for the victory after the filly made a winning return to action in the Prix De La Grotte.

Simeen is priced up at 8/1 as the second favourite, with five runners joint third at 10/1.

Stevens added: “Unlike her Andre Fabre-trained stablemate, Victor Ludorum, Tropbeau was a winner on her return to action, and as a result has consolidated her position as favourite for the French 1,000 Guineas.”

Elsewhere, Sottsass has been eased to 20/1 to win the Qatar Prix De L’Arc De Triomphe in October, after last season’s big race third was well beaten on his season return.

Enable remains the 6/1 favourite for a third win in the race ahead of her St Leger-winning stablemate Logician, who is priced at 14/1.
