When is French racing back?

Racing in France was suspended back in the middle of March, though French authorities have cleared the sport to return at ParisLongchamp on Monday 11th May. The card will feature no less than four Group races, including the Group 3 Prix de Fontainebleau - which is a recognised trial for the French 2000 Guineas - and the Prix de la Grotte, which tests the credentials of those hoping to go for the French 1000 Guineas. Also on the card is the Group 3 Prix de Saint-Georges over five furlongs, and the Group 2 Prix d'Harcourt over a mile and two furlongs. Ghaiyyath was a remarkable winner of the latter last year for Charlie Appleby, William Buick and Godolphin.
