Who To Follow At Longchamp On Sunday

Horse To Follow - Terebellum

The 1 mile 2 furlong Prix de l'Opera is always a superb spectacle on Arc day and this year is no exception with some special fillies and mares going to post.

We like John Gosden's Terebellum who looks to be the second string from the yard but we don't believe the race will go that way, racing three times in her career to a high standard.

She scored on her debut at Goodwood in a Class 4 that she was truly too good for, Newbury was next up in a Listed event on soft ground where she ran well again finishing third but learning a lot in a better field.

On her latest start she snatched her second win of her career again on soft ground at Deauville in a Group two that is leading form stepping up in Class.

Trainer To Follow - Andre Fabre

At the Arc meeting although there are British and Irish raiders that hold decent chances you have to respect the home runners and with that the leading French trainer Andre Fabre has some superb runners.

He has Waldgeist as his biggest chance in the Arc who we believe will put in a superb performance in behind Enable and pick up some nice place money for the third time in a row.

He is a very versatile horse that has won three Group Ones in his career and has run to a fair standard on all different types of ground, having winning form on soft to good ground which always keeps him involved.

He won nicely last time over course and distance in the Group Two Prix Niel which gives him a nice lead into the contest that in he last two years he has finished fourth and third and should give another strong run.

Another strong fancy from his yard on Sunday is Victor Ludorum and this two year old colt has raced twice in France at Longchamp and Chantilly over a mile and has won fairly comfortably on both occasions that this step up to a Group One won't be out of his depth.

It will be a lot tougher for him but already winning over course and distance and being under the master French trainer makes him very appealing.

Jockey To Follow - Oisin Murphy

What can we say about Oisin Murphy and the season he has had winning week in week out and we believe he will round his season off in style by going well at the Arc meeting.

He has a few nice rides with our favourite of his being The 20/1 shot Hey Gaman who has had a very smart season winning on her first two runs of the season at Leicester and then over course and distance in a Group Three race at Longchamp.

He was then second twice in a row in stronger contests at the Curragh and Goodwood with him showing he could cut it in Group Two company.

His latest run at Newbury was below standard on soft ground but having previous form in those conditions it may be a blip and he can go well on Sunday.
