2020 Prix Du Cadran Betting Tips

The 2020 French horse racing season is finishing with a flourish and we’ve got some excellent horse races to take place at Longchamp which includes the Prix Du Cadran. This is a race steeped in history and this year’s renewal promises to be a spectacular encounter where punters can study the racecard to find the horse that is going to have the best stamina.

When it comes to French staying horse races, there is none more prestigious than the Prix Du Cadran and there are two horses that are currently dominating the race card betting, with Call The Wind and Nayef Road at the top of the market and it will be interesting to see how the race pans out.

Call The Wind is a talented six-year-old who returned to the track after a 70-day absence to win the recent Darley Prix Kergorlay at Deauville. That triumph was on soft ground over one mile and seven furlongs, with more to come from a horse that finished second in this race last year and was only beaten by less than a length.

On that occasion, Call The Wind stayed on until the final furlong and this will bode well for connections this time around, although Nayef Road boasts similar credentials and the four-year-old has been among some very talented company this year.

After running a somewhat disappointing race in the Qatar Prix Chaudenay around a year ago, there have been four pretty solid performances in 2020 and it all started with a Group 3 success on the all-weather track at Newcastle.

There was then a second place behind the legendary Stradivarius in the Ascot Gold Cup and the fact that the horse kept to within ten lengths of the eventual winner was a victory of its own. Then came a narrower defeat to the same horse in the Goodwood Cup before third place at York although it’s clear that this horse will get the trip.

The History of the Prix Du Cadran

The Qatar Prix Chaudenay is a fantastic race, especially for those who enjoy watching staying horse races and this Longchamp encounter will be highly popular from an In-Play point-of-view, with several bookies likely to offer In-Play prices through the racecard when the race goes live.

The race first took place in 1837 and many legendary horses have won this famous French staying race including Marsyas who had an incredible four consecutive wins between 1944-1947.

More recent winners have included Kasbah Bliss, Molly Malone and Altano, while Call The Wind will be back in 2020 to try and win the race for a second time after triumphing in 2018.
