Longchamp Sunday Preview

13:15 - Flighty Lady 8/1

The meeting we have all been waiting for is finally here and the first race on the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe card comes in the Prix Marcel Boussac over a mile.

In this Group One we have sided with the Gavin Hernon trained Flighty Lady who will benefit hugely from her experiences in some good contests already this season.

She has raced three times in her with two good thirds and getting off the mark in Deauville in tough, wet conditions and will appreciate any rain that falls before Sunday.

13:50 - Victor Ludorum 15/8

Another hot two year old contest on Arc day is the Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere Sponsorise Par Manateq and the favourite Victor Ludorum for trainer Andre Fabre looks to have bundles of potential.

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.

15:05 - Enable 8/11 & Waldgeist 16/1

The big race of the meeting is of course the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe over 1 mile 4 furlongs and we have a win and each way selection for the richest Group One on turf.

We think there will only be one winner on Sunday and that will be the record breaking Enable for John Gosden.

The mare has raced 14 times in her career going on to win 13 of them and including all these victories, 10 of them came in Group One company spread across three different countries.

She is unbeaten in her last 12 races, looking at her peak even at the older age of five and there is no other horse in the world that can currently compete with her.

She is a horse in a million and what could possibly be her last ever run on a racecourse she is bidding to become the greatest flat horse to ever grace the sport.

Our each way punt the Andre Fabre trained Waldgesit who has won three Group One contests during his illustrious career with one of them coming on his first run of the season in the Prix Ganay beating rival Ghaiyyath comfortably at Longchamp.

He is a very versatile horse that 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.

15:55 - Terebellum 5/1

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 have sided with 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.

16:30 - Battaash 4/5 & Glass Slippers 20/1

Another feature on this Group one card is the Prix de l'Abbaye over five furlongs and with a hefty field of runners going to post we have a win and each way selection.

Our big punt is arguably the fastest horse on the planet in Battaash for Charles Hills and this five year old is just getting better and better with age.

This season he has only been beaten by the superstar Blue Point but in other races has landed the Group Two Temple Stakes at Haydock, King George at Goodwood and in his last run got rid of his York hoodoo and took the Group One Nunthorpe Stakes.

He heads to this race in fine form and won this back in 2017 so it would not be a huge surprise to see him do it all over again.

With a big field there are some nice prices for the each way market and the Kevin Ryan trained Glass Slippers heads into this in fine form.

In his last two races he has landed a Listed and Group Three contest in France and if coming on again in tough company can give a bold showing.

17:05 - Hey Gaman 20/1

Our final selection comes in the Prix de la Foret over seven furlongs and we have sided with the James Tate trained Hey Gaman who looks overpriced to us.

The 20/1 shot 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.
