Nantes’ two best turf races, the Grand Prix de Synergie and Prix d’Anjou Bretagne are run under the same conditions, both being run over one mile (1600m) and worth a total of €52,000.

Nantes Best Trainers & Jockeys

Jumps

As the case with many French jumps tracks, Francois Nicolle figures prominently on the prize money tables, with the multiple-time champion trainer having plenty of blue-blooded horses for the stronger contests.

That doesn’t, however, paint the entire picture of Nicolle’s relationship with Nantes. Aside from the 2018 season where he saddled seven winners, Nicolle has had varied success at the course.

In 2019 Nicolle sent 14 runners to the western French track, with only one winner, for a strike-rate of 7%. In 2017 Nicolle saddled two winners from eight runners, and in 2016 two winners from 12 runners.

By his lofty standards, Nicolle’s stats at the course leave little to be desired and with runners from his yard rarely missed in the betting, it may be worth approaching his runners at with caution round here.

The most consistent pairing in recent seasons has been Yannick Fertillet and Arnaud Chaille-Chaille who tied with four wins each in 2019, operating with strike-rates of 17% and 36% respectively.

Benjamin Berenguer led the way for jump jockeys at Nantes in 2019, but as with trainers, it didn’t take a great number of winners to do so.

Berenguer rode four winners across the season but did so from just 13 rides, operating at a strike-rate of 31%

Clement Lefebvre followed Berenguer home with three winners from his 18 runners in 2019, for a strike-rate of 17%.

Lefebvre led the way among jumps jockeys at Nantes in both 2016 and 2017 and is the only jockey to figure towards the top of the standings with any real consistency across seasons.

Flat

There often isn’t much between stables upon the final trainers’ standings, but two constants in recent seasons, have been Henri-Alex Pantall and Norbert Leenders.

Both Pantall and Leenders led the standings in 2019 with three wins apiece, with Pantall edging his rival by €16,000 in prize money.

Another trainer to note on his rare foray to Nantes is Yann Barberot, who in 2019 sent just eight runners to the track, with three of them were first past the post for a 38% strike rate.

Leenders’ best recent campaign came in 2017 where he saddled 6 winners, amassing €115,000 in total prize money, nearly €20,000 clear of his nearest rival, again, Henri Alex Pantall.

The season before, saw Henri Alex Pantall have his best recent campaign at Nantes with seven winners from 47 runners, with almost €140,000 in total prize money.

Alexandre Roussel has been in a league of his own among riders at Nantes across the last two season’s where he has ridden 18 winners from 76 rides, operating at a 24% strike-rate.

Across that same period, no other jockey has reached double figures, with no real trend or consistency seen by jockeys in behind Roussel, he’s the man to follow at the track.
