Which horses should I pick to finish in the top six in the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe?
Clearly this is no easy task, but then the prize is pretty darn large so the bookie isn’t going to make it too simple. It would be a major surprise if the winner of the last two renewals, Treve, fails to finish in the top six, and indeed the even money favourite (at the time of writing) should feature in the top three, if not make it her third win in as many years.
Elsewhere, John Gosden has a couple of very handy runners in the form of Golden Horn and Jack Hobbs. Golden Horn has won six of his seven runs to date, including the Derby at Epsom, the Coral Eclipse and the Irish Champion Stakes. Jack Hobbs was second to Golden Horn in the Derby but won the Irish version later that month and has since triumphed in the Semptember Stakes at Kempton.
Andre Fabre’s three-year-old colt New Bay has already shown some decent form at Longchamp, winning twice and placing second once, while Andrew Balding’s Elm Park could well feature in the top places despite a relatively poor showing this season.
We would strongly advise saving your coins up for when the final field is declared for this one, and also earning enough coins to add a few combinations to cover a few bases. For what it’s worth, our top six prediction is as follows:
- 1. Treve
- 2. Golden Horn
- 3. New Bay
- 4. Free Eagle
- 5. The Grey Gatsby
- 6. Found
So study the form, earn the coins and get your predictions in and you might just earn a very impressive prize of €33,333. Good luck!
