Amy Murphy and Alice Haynes send their two-year-old stars across the Channel to Vichy for an interesting Listed heat this afternoon, live on Sky Sports Racing.
Fix You is the ride of Maxime Guyon in the Prix des Reves d’Or (1:15), having won on debut at Thirsk for the Haynes and Amo Racing team, who have a clutch of two-year-old stars including Brocklesby winner and Coventry contender Persian Force.
Amy Murphy’s Manhattan Jungle is unbeaten in two starts, having won on debut at Chantilly before following up at Lyon-Parilly last month.
The home challenge looks to be headed by Sabya, who was behind Manhattan Jungle on debut and will be ridden by star French rider Christophe Soumillon.
The domestic flat action at Bath looks as competitive as ever, with Henry Spiller’s filly Mashaaer topping a field of seven in what should be an informative maiden (4:05).
