Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe Tips and Race Guide

The Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe is the world’s premier turf race and is staged over 12 furlongs at Longchamp on the first Sunday of October.

Longchamp, sometimes known as ParisLongchamp, is the jewel in the French Racing crown and plays host to the ‘Arc’ in Western Paris. The race currently carries a purse of €5,000,000 and is funded by Qatari sponsorship and early closing entries in the spring.

Racing is staged over two days, but the crowd swells on Arc Sunday and the recently-renovated grandstand holds a capacity of 60,000.

The Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe was first run in 1920 at Longchamp racecourse. Its
name commemorates soldiers that celebrated the end of the First World War by parading
under the Parisian landmark.

John Gosden’s daughter of Nathaniel, Enable, won back-to-back Arcs in 2017 and 2018. The 2017 edition took place at Chantilly during the Longchamp reconstruction and she was crowned the first Arc winner at the new Longchamp, narrowly defeating Sea of Class. Enable was sportingly kept in training but failed to win a third Arc when reattempting in both 2019 and 2020. Enable was retired after the 2020 Arc.

86 entered in 2022 Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe

86 entered in 2022 Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe

86 horses have been entered in this year’s Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe and with the super mares Enable, Love and Tarnawa all retired, the market this year is headed by 2021 St Leger winner Hurricane Lane for Charlie Appleby at 9-1.

Recent York winner Emily Upjohn is 11-1 with bet365 and holds an entry. She could bid to emulate her sire Sea The Stars, a breath-taking winner of this race back in 2009.

Defending champion Torquator Tasso will begin his season in a month and is a 20-1 chance to successfully defend his Arc title this October. Those odds could look generous if he puts in a big run in the King George this July at Ascot.

The French haven’t been at their best recently and one of their best older horses is 25-1 for this, Fenelon, a long-range fancy for the Race Sharp Team.

Verry Elleegant would need to be supplemented but the Melbourne Cup winner is also on offer at 25-1. Lassaut at 40-1 and Epic Poet at 50-1 could hit the big time for Jean-Claude Rouget but are still works in progress.

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.
