The ‘World’s Greatest Horserace’ returns on Sunday, with 14 runners currently still entered into the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe at Longchamp.
The 1m4f contest is scheduled at 3:05, with several British and Irish runners making the trip across the English Channel on the weekend.
Our team have made their early calls for the contest, with three selections from the current ante-post market.
Here are a trio of runners to consider for the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe on Sunday.
HURRICANE LANE (6/1 – Various)
Aiming to become the first-ever runner to complete the St Leger-Arc double, Hurricane Lane could well be a contender in this contest for Charlie Appleby.
The Frankel colt has been majorly impressive this season, winning five of his six starts including the Irish Derby and Grand Prix de Paris.
The three-year-old has proven to be versatile across the middle distances and on different ground types, so he could well prove to be of some value at 6/1.
CHRONO GENESIS (10/1 – Various)
A superstar mare in her native country, Chrono Genesis makes her second start overseas after dominating the middle distance contests in Japan.
Takashi Saito’s recruit has raked in over £7milllion in prize money for her connections and has won four Group 1 contests in her career.
She looks like a huge talent and her price of 10/1 over this distance looks generous at this stage.
TEONA (25/1 – William Hill)
Roger Varian’s Teona had shown some promise as a two-year-old and after a bumpy summer, she finally arrived on the scene two weeks ago.
The filly caused an upset in the Prix Vermeille, overturning the well-backed and hugely talented Snowfall over C&D earlier this month.
The three-year-old will need the rain to stay away in the coming days, but she could well be of some each-way value here.
