Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe Each Way Ante-Post Selections 2022

Ornesto 10/1

The first of the two selections is the Fabrice Chappet trained Onesto who looks to have solid place claims off the back of what he has done this season and at 10/1 represents value.

A three year old son of Frankel that has took his form to a new level this season since being stepped up in trip and having very close form with the 4/1 favourite Luxembourg, being over double the price makes him interesting.

Needing his first run of the season over the wrong trip of a mile, he went to Saint-Cloud and landed the Group Two Prix Greffulhe in good style.

A superb fifth in the Group One Prix du Jockey Club behind the likes of Vadeni, Modern Games and Al Hakeem, he then went up in trip to 12f at ParisLongchamp in the Grade Prix de Paris and in a superb finish he stayed on well to win the race by a neck.

Back down to 10f last time out he was a 1/2 length second the Luxembourg in the Group One Irish Champion Stakes and now getting back to a course and distance he gave a career best over, at 10/1 he looks a solid shout to hit the frame.

Highly progressive this season and will handle both good and soft ground.

Al Hakeem 33/1

At a much bigger price is the Jean-Claude Rouget trained Al Hakeem whos pedigree suggests he should no get 12f but from the way he races he looks like will improve for a further 2f.

A very consistent horse this season, picking up from where he left off as a juvenile, he started this term over a mile at Chantilly winning a Conditions Stakes and then up to 10f at the same track took the Listed Prix de Suresnes.

Improving with every run he stayed at 10f and finished a valiant fourth of 15 in the Prix du Jockey Club ahead of Onesto, flying home late to suggest that the step up to 12f would suit.

Seen once more since still at 10f at Deauville in the Group Two Prix Guillaume d'Ornano, he was on top close home and went on to win well enough.

Saved since August for the Arc he looks a huge price at 33/1 and could shock a few people.
