2024 Prix Du Jockey Club Betting Odds at Chantilly racecourse

Sunday, 02 June 2024

Big Rock could be set to become the latest winner of the Prix Du Jockey Club, with Christopher Head-trained runner having scored four successive wins. Three of these have come at Chantilly Racecourse and it’s easy to see why the bookmakers are running scared of a horse who is certainly the one to beat over this distance.

Chaldean and Paddington are other each-way alternatives and the former was in good shape at Newmarket in early May when obliging. The horse also enjoyed a string of wins as a two-year-old and only has one blot on the copybook when unseating his rider on 22 April, with Paddington also having rock solid credentials.

2023 Prix Du Jockey Club Tips

Big Rock is ready to claim a fifth successive win and this could come in the French Derby, with the horse set to secure a victory in the Prix Du Jockey Club after a string of impressive victories. On 9 May 2023, there was a win in the Prix de Guiche when the 6/5 favourite was able to oblige by a distance of five lengths over one mile and one furlong.

Big Rock previously won at Longchamp on 9 April, with this coming in the Prix la Force, with previous victories coming at Chantilly. Christopher Head has saddled a horse who is on an upward trajectory, with the descendant of Rock Of Gibraltar set to run a big race although the latest horse racing betting odds suggest it’s not a done deal.

Chaldean was a winner at Newmarket last time out, with the three-year-old obliging in the 2,000 Guineas Stakes and it would end up being a highly successful season if the horse was able to add the French Derby as a success story. The Andrew Balding-trained runner was able to beat rank outsider Hi Royal by nearly two lengths.

Indeed, Chaldean has been a solid performer throughout his career, although Paddington is another runner who can’t be discounted and there have been three consecutive wins for the three-year-old. The horse was most recently successful when landing the spoils as the 5/6 favourite over one mile at the Curragh but needs to find more here.


2022 French Derby Tips

Modern Games hasn’t looked back since winning a nursery handicap at Doncaster Racecourse in early September. Sent off as the 2/1 favourite, he obliged by three-and-a-half lengths and that has paved the way for further success at Newmarket and Del Mar.

However, the fact that the runner hasn’t been seen at the time of writing means that there could be other horses that come into the reckoning and that includes Native Trail. This is another charge from the Charlie Appleby stable, with the horse recently finishing second to Coroebus in the 2000 Guineas.

Previously to this, Native Trail won the bet365 Craven Stakes at Newmarket and it’s likely that the runner will be tilted at the 2022 French Derby where he has to stand a decent chance of securing a victory.

Appleby is likely to have a few darts to throw at this 2022 Prix du Jockey Club race and that could include Nations Pride. The horse has enjoyed a four-race winning run up to this stage and recently won a Listed Race at Newmarket to demonstrate his credentials after obliging as the 7/4 second favourite.


2021 Prix du Jockey Club Betting Tips

The 2021 Prix du Jockey Club looks to be a wide open betting heat on the French racing calendar, with several horses trading between 4/1 and 5/1 right now. Bookmakers such as bet365 are finding it difficult to split many of the runners and it will be interesting to see how the French Derby betting market pans out as we get closer to Sunday 6 June when the race is scheduled to take place.

The 2020 Prix du Jockey Club winner was Mishriff, with the John Gosden-trained runner managing to land the spoils as part of a successful season which also saw the horse win the Newmarket Stakes. Now we look at the 2021 French Derby odds and work out the best runners to back.

St Mark’s Basilica Slight Betting Favourite to Win

The bookies are finding it hard to split a clutch of horses although St Mark’s Basilica is the current market leader and trainer Aidan O’Brien will have high hopes for a horse who was crowned as the leading juvenile horse in Europe last year even if his rating was a good deal lower than several other runners.

The win in the Dewhurst Stakes at Newmarket Racecourse in October means that he’s well regarded by the leading horse racing betting sites when it comes to pricing up the Prix du Jockey Club betting odds, with many punters looking to place an each-way bet on a runner who previously finished second in the Vincent O’Brien National Stakes at The Curragh.

Adhamo and Makaloun Among Prix Du Jockey Club Favourites

Adhamo is trained by French handler Freddy Head and there has been everything to like about the upward trajectory that the horse has recently been enjoying including a couple of wins in 2021 for the three-year-old.

The horse already has a win to his name at Chantilly this season after winning the Prix du Belvedere and Adhamo followed this up with a victory in the Prix la Force at Longchamp, with Maxime Guyon likely to be on board a runner who must have solid each-way claims.

Makaloun is another horse to be respected, with Jean-Claude Rouget having a potential superstar on his hands and the three-year-old also ran impressively as a juvenile which means the bookie odds for the French Derby could make him favourite.

There were four consecutive victories last year including a Group 3 win in the Prix de Conde, while the horse finished third when sent off as betting favourite to win the Criterium de Saint-Cloud on 24 October.


Legendary French trainer Andre Fabre is no stranger to success when it comes to the big races in this country, with the three-year-old having been seen most recently at Longchamp Racecourse, although he could only manage third place in the Prix de Fontainebleau.

However, the horse landed a hat-trick of wins last autumn when scooping victories at Longchamp (twice) and Chantilly, with the Godolphin horse likely to be supported on the day.

Pao Alto is another interesting contender who could yet go off favourite for the Prix du Jockey Club considering that he showed an amazing turn of pace to win a recent Group 3 race.

The Prix de la Force is known as a Classic trial and Pao Alto was cut from 20/1 to 7/1 following an impressive performance which saw French champion jockey Maxime Guyon help the horse to a third victory in four outings.

Winning trainer Christophe Ferland said: "He had enough work behind him to run well on his comeback, but of course today wasn't the main objective.

"He's done it very well and he's a lot calmer than he was last year. He showed a nice change of gear and I hope we can keep him progressing all the way until the start of July [the Prix du Jockey Club]. He will stay the 2,100m at Chantilly.

"There's no definite plan before that, today was as far as we had thought about. He was a sick horse last autumn, I gave him lots of time to recover and he's thanked us for it today."

The History of the Prix du Jockey Club

The Prix du Jockey Club is one of the longest-standing horse races in the French flat horse racing calendar, with three-year-olds competing for a large purse and it’s a race which attracts all the leading lights.

The race is actually a nod to the Jockey Club at Newmarket, with the French Derby being a copy of the English equivalent. Some of the recent winners have included Sottsass, Study of Man and Brametot.
