2019 Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe Betting Tips, Prediction and Race Preview

Enable

Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe preview and betting tips for the Sunday showpiece race at Longchamp. Will Enable make history and win three renewals in a row or can one of the other challengers take the crown from the Queen?

When Enable was beaten into third place by Shutter Speed in a ten furlongs Newbury event back in April 2017, who would have thought she would be on the brink of claiming an historic third ‘Arc’ this coming Sunday. The John Gosden mare will be opposed by several dangerous contestants in the latest renewal of this prestigious race at Longchamp, and the leading contenders are discussed below.

Enable to win the Arc 5/1

 

2019 Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe – the main contenders

 

Enable

 A winner of twelve successive races, Enable has won the Eclipse, ‘King George’ and Juddmonte International this season to prove she is as good as ever ahead of targeting a third ‘Arc’. The John Gosden mare only just thwarted a late challenge from Sea Of Class at Longchamp last season but she had been hampered by an interrupted preparation for that race. She may be difficult to beat on Sunday and you can read about the best place to bet on Enable here.

Latest Odds – 4/6 (get 5/1 via this link)

 

Japan

Finishing fourth in the York Dante Stakes behind Telecaster did not inspire much confidence in Japan for the rest of season, but he produced an improved effort to claim third position in the Epsom Derby. Thereafter the Aidan O’Brien colt has remained unbeaten with two Group 1 victories sealed in his latest starts and he could be a serious threat to the favourite.

Latest Odds – 5/1

 

Sottsass

Victory in Prix Du Jockey Club during early June when beating the useful Persian King suggested that Sottsass was a very capable horse and he progressed from that win to seal the Prix Niel over course and distance last month. That triumph followed an extended break after that earlier ‘French Derby’ success, and he will enter this race as a relatively fresh horse.

Latest Odds – 6/1

 

Ghaiyyath

Front-running tactics are usually employed by trainer Charlie Appleby when racing his 4-year-old colt Ghaiyyath and he was an impressive fourteen lengths winner of his latest start in Germany over 1m4f last month. He was also a decent winner when scoring over 1m2f at Longchamp during early April but later that same month, he could only finish third behind Waldgeist. There were signs that day he would appreciate this longer 1m4f test.

Latest Odds – 10/1 

 

Magical

Trained by Aidan O’Brien, Magical has finished second behind Enable on three occasions but she was a decent winner of the Irish Champion Stakes last month. In seven races during 2019, she has never finished outside the first two placings but will the effects of a busy season could count against her in this contest.

Latest Odds – 10/1

 

Waldgeist

Andre Fabre’s 5-year-old colt Waldgeist has been beaten by both Enable and Crystal Ocean on separate occasions this term but has not been disgraced in those races. The 2018 Prix Ganay winner prepared for this contest by comfortably winning the Group 2 Prix Foy last month over course and distance but with just three other opponents in the race.

Latest Odds – 12/1

 

French King

Unbeaten in three starts this year, French King has raced in Germany for his last two contests with Group 2 victories secured on both occasions. The 4-year-old also won in Doha earlier this year, a race in which Hunting Horn was three lengths back in third. It is difficult to assess the overall quality of opposition faced by this French-trained colt but he will have no problems with the distance.

Latest Odds – 50/1

 

Soft Light

Supplemented for this race earlier this week, Soft Light is a stable mate of Sottsass but has failed to win in six starts this season. There is no reason to suggest he can reverse form with Japan after a fourth length fifth-placed defeat in the Grand Prix de Paris, but he finished well that day and could be decent each-way value.

Latest Odds – 66/1

 

Nagano Gold

Representing the Czech Republic, Nagano Gold was a winner of a Listed race at Longchamp back in April but has yet to prove he can be successful in group company. He did finish second behind Defoe at Royal Ascot and despite being hampered during the early stages, it is questionable whether that form can be considered top class.

Latest Odds – 66/1

 

The Japanese Arc challenge 2019

Blast Onepiece – has raced three times this year culminating in a narrow victory at Sapporo last time. He is a previous winner over this distance but seems to have a mixture of good and bad days.

Latest Odds – 33/1

 

Fierement – was beaten by Blast Onepiece on his latest start but form would suggest he is a more reliable colt with some consistent efforts during the last two seasons. A winner over two miles, he may be racing best during the later stages.

Latest Odds – 33/1 

 

Kiseki – was beaten in the Prix Foy by Waldgeist and he has not won a race for nearly two years.

Latest Odds – 33/1
