Aidan O’Brien enters two of his very best horses from this season to compete for the Arc at Longchamp in France on Sunday. Derby winner, Ruler Of The World and St Leger victor Leading Light will both bid to bring the Arc to the Ballydoyle stables come 3.20 tomorrow afternoon.
Qatar Prix De L’Arc De Triomphe (Group 1)
Roger Charlton’s triple 1m2f winning colt, Al Kazeem is another British entry for the race, as well as Joshua Tree, who will be rode by champion jockey Richard Hughes in chase of the huge £2,285,600 prize.
The phenomenal Novellist was the best British hope for the race, however due to a high temperature he has been withdrawn from what could have been a fantastic way for him and jockey Johnny Murtagh to end a great season.
Orfevre is currently the 2/1 favourite with Bet365 amongst other firms, following an unbeaten 2013. He was just edged into second in the 2012 renewal of this, so another top performance is almost a certainty.
Treve is a superb, unbeaten filly who warrants huge respect, although the wide draw will make it very difficult, as it will for Al Kazeem who is drawn widest of all.
Japanese Derby winner Kizuna beat Ruler Of The World in a photo finish in the Niel, giving them both very strong claims at decent value with both of the pair at 8/1 with Boylesports.
Intello is another interesting contender and Leading Light has fantastic claims at slightly kind odds of 14/1 with BetVictor.
Qatar Prix De L’Abbaye De Longchamp (Group 1)
A number of British entries are also entered for the first race of the day, with the speedy Jwala the favourite of them all. He produced a huge surprise when winning the Nunthorpe and a similar performance gives him a fantastic chance again here.
Dutch Masterpiece has won 6 out of 7 over 5f and therefore warrants huge respect again, as do Maarek and Sole Power. The former ran well when back to winning ways at Newbury last time out and the latter looks one of the best in the sport over this distance when ground is fast so this is sure to be a competitive contest.
Jockeys Richard Hughes, Ryan Moore and Mickael Barzalona are all set to feature in the Total Prix Marcel Boussac which will be a battle between some of the best fillies’ in the sport. The champion jockey is aboard Sandiva who represents good value at 9/2 with Paddy Power.
She will have to beat Royalmania and Lesstalk In Paris though, who are both unbeaten in 2 races and look extremely talented horses.
Qatar Prix De La Foret (Group 1)
MOONLIGHT CLOUD has ran exquisitely this season and should continue that form here in the Qatar Prix de la Foret. This trip is ideal for her and at short odds of 10/11 with BetVictor, she seems very hard to oppose.
Gordon Lord Byron cannot be ruled out easily though. He won this last year and was victorious in another Group 1 at Haydock last time out, which indicates he is sure to go close.
Ryan Moore is aboard Times Up in the Qatar Prix du Cadran and is in with another chance of a victory. At 4/1 with most firms, the 7-year-old cannot be ignored and if he runs anything like he did when winning the Doncaster Cup for the second time, he is sure to go close.
Tac De Boistron and James Doyle’s ride, High Jinx are another two that warrant respect and should give good accounts in this.
A variety of British racing is also available throughout Sunday, with Huntingdon, Kelso, Tipperary and Uttoxeter providing some decent action for punters.
