This year’s current favourite and one of two for trainer, Aidan O’Brien. This very talented 3 year old colt has won 5 of 6 career starts so far, including two Group One contests.
He fulfilled his early promise with a fine victory in the Irish Champion Stakes at Leopardstown last time out.
He beat an impressive looking field that day, which featured a few of the other horses running in this year’s Arc.
He promises to stay a mile and a half and it seems different ground conditions will not be too much of an issue for him, plus he will have the assistance of two-time Arc-winning jockey Ryan Moore on board.
Trainer has never won the Arc with a 3 year old, but Luxembourg deserves to be at the top of the market and is very highly respected.
