In-form Spinning Memories out to bag another Group 3 in Prix du Palais-Royal
Spinning Memories wasted no time in getting her campaign off to a flyer in Listed company on French racing’s return fixture at Longchamp earlier this month, and Thursday’s Prix du Palais-Royal looks another good opportunity for the classy mare to add a Group 3 to her tally.
A ready winner at the same level in last season’s Prix de Meautry Barriere, Pascal Bary’s five-year-old is clearly in a good place at present and appears the one to beat in the 7f contest, which has been rerouted to Clairefontaine from Longchamp.
There was also a timely boost to the form of her recent Prix Maurice Zilber success when third-placed Air De Valse landed the feature handicap at Vichy on Wednesday.
What the trainers say
Pascal Bary, trainer of Spinning Memories
She’s a lovely mare and I think seven furlongs is perfect for her. She took her last run well and I am hoping for a very good performance.
