2020 Poule d'Essai des Pouliches betting odds

The Poule d'Essai des Pouliches is one of the most prestigious horse races in France, with this being the equivalent of the 1,000 Guineas in England. It means we will see several talented three-year-old fillies lining up in a bid to become the latest female champion.

The race is run over one mile and, like the French 2,000 Guineas, it has been re-routed from ParisLongchamp to Deauville, with the race now being hosted by this racetrack for the third time in five years.

Tropbeau has been all the rage in the betting market in the lead-up to this encounter, with the talented filly having proved to be highly impressive as the 2/1 favourite when winning a race at Longchamp on 11 May.

It’s no surprise to find the horse is trained by the legendary Andre Fabre who saw his runner win three times as a two-year-old, with Tropbeau narrowly beating Dream And Do and Tickle Me Green in the Prix de la Grotte.

That was on very soft ground although we can expect firmer conditions at Deauville and that might bring Simeen into play, with the J-C Rouget-trained charge having only been seen racing twice although both encounters were successful.

She won at Saint-Cloud in June 2019 before a more recent win at Chantilly and there have been plenty of positive noises coming from the stable, while the same could be said about Dream And Do who got narrowly close to Tropbeau last time out.

The horse will have the advantage of having raced at Deauville before on her career debut, while there was then a consecutive hat-trick of wins at Maisons-Laffitte before that exciting finish at Longchamp.

Tickle Me Green is another horse trading at single figure odds for the race, with the German raider finishing third in that Longchamp warm-up race and she’s another Andre Fabre contender who can’t be underestimated.

Magic Attitude has also been the subject of many bets, with the Chappet-trained horse having won at Longchamp on 14 May and that performance truly thrust her into the spotlight for this encounter.

The History of the Poule d'Essai des Pouliches

This is a highly historic horse race and it serves as the equivalent to the English 1,000 Guineas which means that it’s one of the French classics when it comes to flat horse racing.

This race was established in France in 1840, with Freddy Head remaining the most successful jockey in the race after experiencing eight successes between 1975-1997.

Charles Semblat and Criquette Head-Maarek hold the record for the most successful training performances in the Poule d'Essai des Pouliches, with seven wins apiece, while Castle Lady was the 2019 winner of the race.
