Longchamp Tips and Racecourse Guide

Longchamp, sometimes known as ParisLongchamp, is the jewel in the French Racing crown and plays host to Europe’s premier race in October, the €5,000,000 Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe over 12 furlongs.

Longchamp represents the best of what French Racing has to offer, providing an outstanding racecourse and a relaxed environment for patrons.

The racing program includes the French Guineas in May, the Prix Ganay, the Grand Prix de Paris, the Prix du Cadran and a magnificent undercard on Prix de l’Arc weekend.

The crowd swells on Arc Sunday and the recently-renovated grandstand holds a capacity of 60,000.

In response to some frustration about being drawn wide, particularly over a mile for the Guineas, France Galop have introduced a cut-away just over two furlongs from home which is used for major fixtures.

Longchamp has a sprint course on the infield which plays host to the best French sprinters in the run up to the Prix de l’Abbaye, as well as some two-year-old races.

In the Class 2 contest at Longchamp today, 100/30 Lev has been highly-touted but has disappointed outside of maiden company and was dropped 2kg by the handicapper for his last run in today’s grade.


Jean-Claude Rouget’s Zarafa has a nice pedigree but is winless on all three starts this season and is hard to fancy at 100/30 on the back of a three-month break.


5-1 Star Rock returned from a four-month absence last month in behind Race Sharp tip Pervade on his first start for Mikel Delzangles. If he runs to his rating of 42.0 he has a chance, but I think he still has a bit to find to get to that mark and it seems likely he had an injury earlier this year, as he remains lightly-raced. It’s interesting that he hasn’t won since breaking his maiden on the polytrack, as his half-brother Coachello is a polytrack specialist who hated soft turf in France. Good to soft at Longchamp may not be ideal for Star Rock.


Miss Blue Sky is the pick for Andre Fabre at 7/2. The Shamardal filly held Classic entries this spring and came back from a four-month break to land a maiden on her third career start. Unfancied at 5-1 for that Clairefontaine maiden, she travelled in the style of a filly that will be at home in today’s grade and there could be more to come, as she appears scopey.


When Andre Fabre skips grades, such as entering a maiden in a Class 1 or a maiden winner in a Black Type contest, we should all take note. Miss Blue Sky had a Listed entry this month and also holds an entry in the Group Two Daniel Wildenstein on Arc Weekend.


She will need to find a small bit of improvement to win, but if she can run to at least 40, getting 3lb from the colts, she will go very close to winning today.

How to get there


Longchamp is served by metro stations to the north-east and south-east of the racecourse. Above Longchamp, patrons can take the Metro Line 1 to Porte Maillot and then a shuttle on major racedays and Sundays from the bus stop of the 244 bus. Alternatively, they can take the Metro Line 10 to Porte d’Auteuil and the shuttle bus leaves from the top of the station at street level.

The shuttle adds time to the journey but from then it is a non-stop transfer, making the small wait worthwhile.


If you are treating yourself to a trip to Longchamp whilst on holiday or are able to split the fare, a taxi makes sense, even from Central Paris or Gare du Nord.

An Uber costs about €35 from Central Paris to the racecourse and takes half an hour.


Longchamp can be reached via Charles de Gaulle or Orly airports. Orly is much closer and is well worth selecting if you can. From there, it is a 40-minute taxi to the racecourse.
