Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe 2020 Preview


Prix De L'Arc


The Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe is without a doubt one of the biggest horse races on the international calendar. Despite being held in France, this race holds a big place in UK horse racing, and each year we see countless British raiders try and win the crown.

This year we have a big late omission from the race as Love, trained by Aidan O’Brien is out of the contest. She has been the antepost favourite for some time, and this takes away the big clash of the two fillies, between her and Enable.

However, despite that a strong field still goes to post and here is our preview of the contest.

Enable to Land Third Arc

Although not an original selection, in terms of who wins the Arc, it is impossible to look past Enable. She came very close to winning her third Arc last season, we thought that was the end of her racing career but she is back again this season with another bid.

The negatives for her is that she is a year older, but this field is not to the same standard as last year’s, even more so now that Love is out of the race.

It would be a real fairy tale ending to what has been an excellent career, and we fancy her to come good on Sunday and get the job done.

German Derby Winner Proven on Ground Offers Each Way Value

Those looking for value should be looking towards a proven ground specialist, In Swoop. He’s only ran four times so far and took the German Derby in great style back in July. Crucially, this horse is proven on soft ground and we are forecast to get ground on the day that will either be described as very soft or heavy.

He was beaten by rival Mogul when running here last month but the ground that day was fairy quick by French standard, and Mogul was given a very good ride to get the run of the race. The tables are turned here and In Swoop is fancied to get the better of Mogul, and if he does that then there is no doubt he will be around the places.

Prix de l’Abbeye to be Won by Britain Again

There are many other great races across the weekend in France, with the best of those all taking place on Sunday. One race in particular stands out from the British point of view and that is the Prix de l’Abbeye.

This race is traditionally one we do very well in, and the main two contenders are both British. Battaash is a star sprinter, but as we saw last season in this race, he doesn’t go as well on the soft ground we get in France.

Glass Slippers beat him that day, and comes back looking for more again. Although Battaash is the better horse, and has beaten Glass Slippers this year, we have to side with Glass Slippers for value, as he will love the ground.
