Key punting pointers and early market movers at Longchamp

The scene at Longchamp on the opening day of the Arc meeting
1 of 1

Few races capture the imagination quite like the Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe and the anticipation for this year's contest – particularly among the large travelling contingent from Britain – has only been increased by the return to Longchamp.


Now we're willing Enable to be crowned Longchamp's homecoming queen


Frankie Dettori and John Gosden combined with Golden Horn to win the last Arc staged at Longchamp before the redevelopment and they will carry the hopes of many punters with Enable – the 2017 Chantilly heroine.

Red-hot favourite Enable faces a strong challenge from the likes of Yorkshire Oaks winner Sea Of Class and dominant Prix Foy scorer Waldgeist in what promises to be a fascinating race (3.05).

There are plenty of other champions competing on a star-studded card featuring six Group 1s. Battaash bids to retain his Prix de l'Abbaye (4.25) crown, while Wild Illusion heads a strong British challenge in the Prix de l'Opera (3.50).


Longchamp card


Don't forget that Tipperary stages its best meeting of the year, with the mixed card featuring three Grade 3 contests and one Group 3, while in Britain Uttoxeter and Kelso host jumps fixtures.

Going report

Longchamp (first race 1.20)
Good

Tipperary (1.40)
Flat course: soft, soft to heavy in places
Hurdle course: good to yielding
Chase course: good

Uttoxeter (2.00)
Good to soft, good in places

Kelso (2.20)
Good, good to firm in places

Market movers

3.05 Longchamp: Enable out to 11-10 (from evens)
4.25 Kelso: Vaniteux into 100-30 (from 5)
5.05 Uttoxeter: Baily Sunset into 3-1 (from 6)

Final thought 

It's great that last seasons's Arc winner Enable was kept in training after such a spectacular campaign. Her presence adds so much to this year's race.
