Sottsass: triumphed in last year’s Arc for Jean Claude-Rouget and Cristian Demuro – Edward Whitaker (racingpost.com/photos) – By Racing Post staff

The first weekend in October traditionally brings together the best of the best in Europe and beyond at Longchamp, with the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe the big-race highlight on Sunday.

Several iconic performers have triumphed over the 1m4f test and this year’s race, due off at 3.05pm and broadcast live on ITV, promises to deliver another fascinating clash.

3.05 Longchamp: Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe racecard and betting

1 Torquator Tasso

Close second in 2020 German Derby to subsequent Arc runner-up; not totally forlorn at a price

Trainer: Marcel Weiss
Jockey: Rene Piechulek
Odds: 66-1



2 Deep Bond

Stout stayer; won Grade 2 over 1m7f in Japan; much more to do than when course-and-distance winner latest

Trainer: Ryuji Okubo
Jockey: Mickael Barzalona
Odds: 20-1



3 Broome

1m4f in July saw first Group 1 win; could not peg back Deep Bond here; makes little appeal

Trainer: Aidan O’Brien
Jockey: Yutaka Take
Odds: 50-1





4 Tarnawa

Carried all before her at 1m4f/1m2f in 2020; top 1m2f form latest; biggest test to date

Trainer: Dermot Weld
Jockey: Christophe Soumillon
Odds: 11-4



5 Love

Unforgettable wins over 1m and 1m4f in 2020 but that brilliance has yet to return in 2021

Trainer: Aidan O’Brien
Jockey: Frankie Dettori
Odds: 20-1



6 Raabihah

Something to find on most form but finished strongly in fifth in this race last year (heavy)

Trainer: Jean-Claude Rouget
Jockey: Cristian Demuro
Odds: 25-1





7 Chrono Genesis 

Top-class form at 1m4f in Japan and Meydan; conditions are softer than she’s used to

Trainer: Takashi Saito
Jockey: Oisin Murphy
Odds: 9-1



8 Mojo Star 

Divided Adayar and Hurricane Lane in the Derby; outgunned by latter since; asked a lot now

Trainer: Richard Hannon
Jockey: Rossa Ryan
Odds: 50-1



9 Baby Rider 

Early runs against the top three-year-olds show that he is in too deep in this company

Trainer: Pascal Bary
Jockey: Iortiz Mendizabal
Odds: 100-1





10 Adayar

Scintillating wins in the Derby and King George; outstanding three-year-old who is the one to beat

Trainer: Charlie Appleby
Jockey: William Buick
Odds: 5-2



11 Hurricane Lane

Has had tough campaign; third to Adayar in the Derby; three Group 1 wins at 1m4f/1m6f since

Trainer: Charlie Appleby
Jockey: James Doyle
Odds: 4-1



12 Sealiway

Suited by testing ground; off since June; pedigree doesn’t lend itself to step up to 1m4f

Trainer: Cedric Rossi
Jockey: Franck Blondel
Odds: 33-1





13 Alenquer

Stayed on well when winning at Royal Ascot (1m4f, heavy); excuses since; has potential

Trainer: William Haggas
Jockey: Tom Marquand
Odds: 25-1



14 Bubble Gift

Acts well on soft but never involved behind Hurricane Lane here in July; has a lot to find

Trainer: Mikel Delzangles
Jockey: Gerald Mosse
Odds: 100-1



15 Snowfall

Star three-year-old filly at 1m4f; query against her after latest start but has been supplemented

Trainer: Aidan O’Brien
Jockey: Ryan Moore
Odds: 5-1
