We are now just two weeks away from the return of UK racing and three weeks away from the resumption of Irish racing (all being well).
French racing is continuing all week as was the case last week with some exciting races set to take place, details of which can be found below:
– Gold River @ Paris Longchamp on Thursday
– Romati and the Durtain @ Compiegne on Friday
– GD PX Bordeaux and the Derby Du Midi @ Bordeux Le Bouscat on Saturday
– De Barberville @ Paris Longchamp on Sunday
We also have a few international races of note this week, details of which are:
The Yushun Himba (Japanese Oaks) takes place on Sunday 24th May over in Tokyo – this is a Group 1 race which should prove popular due to the high-class nature of the race.
The final leg of the Hong Kong Triple Crown takes place at Sha Tin on Sunday (24th) as well – the Champions and Chater Cup is the final Group 1 race of the season and the favourite, Exultant, should prove popular with bettors as he looks to be the back-to-back winner of the race and make it a three-timer for trainer Tony Cruz.
Racing over in Australia and the US continues to take place at their usual rate – due to time difference the US racing is more favoured with UK punters. Overall then it looks like horse racing is slowly starting to return after Covid-19. We just all have to continue to be patient and before we know it our favourite sport will be back to how we enjoy it.
