2016 Arc De Triomphe Betting Tips PT 1

The big finale of the European flat season is just a couple of weeks away as the world's most vaunted 1m4f contest is set for a rather interesting iteration of itself this time around. The Arc will ne held at Chantilly in lieu of Longchamp this year due to renovations on the course outside of Paris that traditionally hosts this massive fixture.


The line-up of contenders has started to get a lot more interesting now that we are heading towards relatively likely declarations in the next few days. While this is a provisional list and there is still just under two weeks until the contest itself actually runs.

Looking at the ante post market right now shows a clear preference for Postponed, who comes out of Roger Varian's yard and enters fresh off a solid victory in the Juddmonte International Stakes at York back in mid-August.

Prior to that, Postponed had taken the Coronation Cup at Epsom and a two-race stint in Dubai where he scored in both contests – notably capturing the big money Sheema Classic by a two length margin over Duramente. This horse has been able to beat pretty much every major contender in his division and the only real blemish against him is the fact that he is without a run at Chantilly during is 17 race career so far.

He had captured a Group 2 victory at Longchamp last year and that would have stood him in very good stead if the contest was being held in its usual location. That remains the only genuine question mark over his ability to take the victory with the same margin of ease that he has been able to demonstrate in the past year of action on the racetrack.
