If you had told me a year ago that I would be writing this preview as the highlight of racing on the 1st weekend in June, I would have laughed at you and happily laid 1000/1 against it, but here we are. On what should be Derby and Oaks weekend, the highlight of the European pattern racing is switched instead to the French Guineas. The return of French racing on 11th May has brought some welcome relief from the tedium of Netflix and the Belarus Premier League, but moreover, it has shown the good quality of racing available in France.
