2024 Prix Du Cadran Betting Odds at Longchamp racecourse

Saturday, 05 October 2024

This is an exciting Group 1 encounter taking place at Longchamp Racecourse on Saturday 30 September, with the runners and riders going to post at 1.33pm at the Paris track. Trueshan could be the one to beat and this horse was successful last time out, with Alan King hoping that one of his stable stars is able to perform well at this high-profile encounter.

Emily Dickinson has ran five times this season and claimed two victories in the process. Aidan O’Brien will hope that she benefits from the mares’ allowance and the four-year-old has to be respected on showings to date. Run For Oscar has run four times this season without tasting a victory although perhaps the horse can manage it here.

2023 Prix Du Cadran Tips

Trueshan is an experienced seven-year-old who could have the beating of the other five horses when it comes to the 2023 Prix Du Cadran. Alan King’s charge has achieved a number of notable victories during a stellar career, with the latest win coming in the Doncaster Cup Stakes when obliging over two miles and two furlongs on soft ground.

This victory came after wind surgery following an underwhelming performance in the Sagaro Stakes at Ascot where the horse finished fourth out of six runners. Sent off at even money favourite, the runner wasn’t able to make the pace but there was previously that British Champions Long Distance Cup win last autumn.

Emily Dickinson has the advantage of carrying less weight, with a credible run at Goodwood occurring in the Goodwood Cup Stakes when the filly was able to finish second to Quickthorn in this Group 1 encounter at the beginning of August. This came after a Curragh Cup triumph over one mile and six furlongs and she could be set to go well here.

Run For Oscar was fifth in the Sumbe Prix Kergorlay at Deauville over one mile and seven furlongs. The horse has nearly eight lengths to find against Emily Dickinson after that run in the Comer Cup, although the bookies respect the chances of a horse who finished third in the Queen Alexandra Stakes at Royal Ascot back in June.

2022 Prix du Cadran Tips

Kyprios has notched five successive victories this year and Aidan O’Brien will have high hopes that the four-year-old can sign off for the season with a victory in the Prix du Cadran. After all, this runner has beaten some impressive opponents and he claimed a narrow triumph against Stradivarius, Trueshan and Coltrane in the Goodwood Cup Stakes.

The horse then landed the spoils in the Irish St Leger, with this taking place over one mile and six furlongs on yielding ground, with a victory in the Ascot Gold Cup really marking out this horse for stardom.

Quickthorn is ready to go head-to-head with this runner and the Hughie Morrison-trained runner has landed three successive wins. There was a very decisive win in the Lonsdale Cup Stakes over slightly more than two miles and it was a fourteen-length victory which possibly marks out this horse as a potential winner.

This runner has also run and won at Longchamp this year, earning a triumph in the Prix Maurice de Nieuil - Prix Radio FG when obliging over one mile and six furlongs. Trueshan was sent off as a massive favourite to win the Doncaster Cup Stakes before being touched off by Coltrane and perhaps the latter can be a good each-way wager.

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.
