Enable headlines remaining 22 contenders for Arc

Enable headlines remaining 22 contenders for Arc

Defending champion Enable is the standout name featured in the 22 horses still in contention to race in this weekend’s Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe.

The John Gosden-trained horse won in impressive fashion with Frankie Dettori this time 12 months ago in the Autumn classic, with there now being the carrot for the pair to both make history at Longchamp Racecourse.

Victory for Enable would see her become just the seventh horse to win twice in the famous race in its 98-year history and become just the second horse to do so this century along with Treve, who was also a back-to-back winner in 2013 and 2014.

Meanwhile, Dettori is already the most successful jockey in the race with six wins to his name, having won two of the last three editions with Golden Horn in 2015 and Enable a year ago.

However, it remains to be seen whether or not stablemate Cracksman will also take part, with Gosden still waiting to see if weather conditions suit before making a judgement.

Aidan O’Brien will try his luck with six potential runners currently in line to feature, most notably St Leger winner Kew Gardens. O’Brien is a two-time winner at the Arc, winning most recently back in 2016 with Found, which ended a nine-year wait after Dylan Thomas claimed a maiden victory for the stable in 2007.

Capri, Flag Of Honour, Hunting Horn, Nelson and Magical join in as potential O’Brien runners, as he aims to win his third Arc title.

Two other home favourites could also be included in the race, with Defoe and Salouen also having plans to be included. Roger Varian’s Defoe last competed back in May at the Curragh, finishing third in a five-horse field, while Salouen was ridden by Silvestre de Sousa in late August at Deauville.

Sea Of Class, who has made her name in the middle distance division this season for her outstanding wins in the Irish and Yorkshire Oaks, will need to be added to the field at Wednesday's supplementary stage if she is going to take on Enable.
