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.

Longchamp Tips

ParisLongchamp Horse Racing Tips Today – 09/06

Roshvar has been highly-touted by trainer Francis-Henri Graffard this season but he had a nightmare in the French 2000 Guineas, breaking slowly from a wide draw having been upset by the heavy rains immediately beforehand. Giving away five lengths at the start was always going to leave him with an uphill challenge, but to his credit he did manage to make up plenty of ground before the furlong pole.

 

Back to genuine good ground today, and drawn low, he could explode onto the scene at a big price. He’s been put in at 16-1 and hopefully Pasquier can keep him near the low-drawn favourite Lazzat.

 

He continues to work very well at home and looks a great ew bet in the 2.50pm.

 

2.50pm ParisLongchamp – 1pt each-way Roshvar @ 16-1 (most firms)

How to get there

Metro

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.

Taxi

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.

Fly

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.
