2021 Prix du Moulin Betting Odds at Longchamp racecourse

Monday, 06 September 2021

The Prix du Moulin de Longchamp takes place at the beginning of September every year, with this being a Group 1 flat French horse race where horses aged three or older compete at the Parisian race track, with the race having been in operation since 1957 and it attracts a number of star performers on an annual basis.

Persian King was the 2020 winner when touching off Pinatubo and Circus Maximus, with the race actually being named after the Moulin de Longchamp, with this being a windmill which is held on the actual racecourse grounds.

Baeed Heads Betting for 2021 Prix du Moulin

It’s clear that Baeed is the horse that will take all the beating for the 2021 renewal at ParisLongchamp, with the William Haggas-trained charge having enjoyed an unbeaten year to date and the leading horse racing betting sites all have the runner at odds-on in the betting.

The son of Sea The Stars has been showing an impressive turn of foot in previous renewals, with the horse starting the season as a relatively untested colt although he started the three-year-old campaign with a triumph at Leicester before two victories at Newmarket.

The win in the Group 3 Thoroughbred Stakes at Goodwood was particularly eye-catching, with a step to Group One company being the logical move and the bookies are certainly not prepared to take on Baeed for this race, with the other contenders trading at 4/1 or bigger.

Who Can Beat Baeed in the Prix du Moulin?

There are a number of other horses being chalked up for this Group 1 encounter, with Poetic Flare probably the runner who is most likely to participate and he was runner-up in the recent Prix du Haras de Fresnay-le-Buffard Jacques le Marois when being narrowly beaten by a neck against Palace Pier.

Previously to this Poetic Flare finished runner-up in the Sussex Stakes at Glorious Goodwood and the bookies anticipate that there could be another second-placed finish according to the latest odds, although trainer Jim Bolger reckons the horse is still open to further improvement.

Victor Ludorum and Order of Australia are next in the betting, with the former having run disappointingly at Deauville when last lining up, although the Prix Messidor victory in his previous race suggests he could be a contender. Order of Australia was shortly behind Poetic Flare in the same race and Aidan O’Brien’s Minstrel Stakes winner could be a good each-way bet.
