We’re posting our Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe tips and also have selections for the other six races at Longchamp on Sunday, which will be covered by ITV and Sky Sports Racing.
As well as Europe’s most prestigious contest, there are five more Group One events, plus a handicap – and we’ve got expert picks from PA’s Keith Hamer.
Unbeaten in two starts and should make it three in the Prix Marcel Boussac for master trainer Andre Fabre, judged on the cosy way she got up late on here in Group Two company last month.
1.50 VICTOR LUDORUM
Another Fabre juvenile who is two from two and looks the answer to the Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere after claiming emphatic victories at this track and Chantilly so far.
Can make turf history by becoming the first horse to win the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe three times.
The remarkable mare has carried all before her in a glittering career that has yielded 13 wins from 14 starts, including 10 Group Ones.
A hat-trick of Arcs would be the icing on the cake and Enable can do what even the brilliant Treve could not quite manage.
Her bid for immortality was thwarted by Golden Horn, who lifted Europe’s premier prize in 2015 for the same John Gosden-Frankie Dettori trainer-and-jockey combination as Enable.
Our selection was an easy winner when the race was rescheduled to Chantilly in 2017 and managed to hang on from Sea Of Class as the showpiece event returned to its spiritual home last year, despite having a restricted campaign.
It has been more straightforward this season, with victories in the Eclipse, King George and Yorkshire Oaks, which have highlighted all the elements of her amazing talent.
This will be the smallest Arc field Enable has faced and she holds all the aces.
French Derby winner Sottsass could give her the most to do, while Waldgeist, fourth last year, may creep into a place.
3.55 WATCH ME (nap)
This Coronation Stakes heroine can return to winning ways in the Prix de l’Opera on her first run over a mile and a quarter.
The step up in distance should suit the filly, who is trained by Francis-Henri Graffard, after she put in good late work to finish fourth to Romanised in the Prix Jacques le Marois at Deauville.
Has speed to burn and Charlie Hills’ sprinter is another headline act on the card as he tries to regain the Prix de l’Abbaye.
He blitzed the opposition two years ago, but was below par when fourth to Mabs Cross 12 months ago.
The five-year-old has been in scintillating form this season and his performance to win the Nunthorpe at York in record time was sensational.
If the same Battaash turns up, then the opposition will be fighting for place money only.
5.05 ONE MASTER
Sprang a surprise when getting up close home to win last year’s Prix de la Foret and William Haggas’ mare can repeat the trick.
She has not won since, but this will be the first time she will be running back over seven furlongs.
5.40 POST VAR
Deserves to pick up a decent prize in the Grand Handicap Des Flyers after finishing third of 17 at Deauville and then going down by just a nose in a 15-runner competitive heat at this venue.
