2017 ARC DE TRIOMPHE BETTING PREVIEWWithout last year's winner Almanzor and highly-rated Cracksman, ENABLE is the odds-on favourite ahead of the race. This horse has taken the Flat season by storm and will look to land a fifth consecutive Group One under Frankie Dettori. The aggregate winning distance in those races has been 20 lengths, each being won by five lengths - including the Irish Oaks, the King George and the Yorkshire Oaks.
ULYSSES posted a career best when winning the Group 1 International Stakes at York last time out, but he has form to find with Enable from Ascot and the suspicions remains that 10 furlongs is his perfect trip.
WINTER has claimed four Group Ones this year, but he was surprisingly defeated on his latest outing in the Moyglare Stud Stakes and will be trying to run at a mile-and-a-half for the first time.
ORDER OF ST GEORGE, who finished thrid last year, bounced back from defeat in a stunning renewal of the Royal Ascot Gold Cup by easily claiming a fourth straight St Leger Trial. Soft ground will not be a problem for this multiple Group One winner.
DSCHINGIS SECRET beat Hawkbill to a Group One in Germany and will appreciate the softer ground, but this field is much better than anything he has ever encountered.
ZARAK made a big impact when winning a Group One on his 12 furlong debut last month and he certainly has the potential to run well above his odds.
CAPRI was the default winner of the Irish Derby after Wings Of Eagles' injury, and was good enough to beat Cracksman that day. He had to dig deep to win the St Leger, meaning he comes here off the back of two Classic wins.
Pick of the home defence could be BRAMETOT, who enter this race on the back of a poor prep effort in a Deauville Group 2. Furthermore, he has yet to go beyond the ten and a half furlongs he covered when winning the Prix du Jockey Club.
Without Almanzor, the French challenge does not look particularly strong, either, with CLOTH OF STARS and ZARAK - who finished winner and runner-up in the Ganay earlier in May - both having a bit to find with the principal British-and Irish-trained horses, and SILVERWARE having been well beaten in each of the last two renewals.
The Japanese are represented by SATONO DIAMOND, who looked one paced in his trial. He was the winner of four of his starts as a three-year-old, including the Group 1 Kikuka Sho (Japanese St Leger) at Kyoto and the Group 1 Arima Kinen at Hanshin (by neck from Japan Cup winner Kitasan Black).
IDAHO was only just behind Ulysses when five lengths behind Enable in the King George at Ascot. On his two previous starts he won the Group 2 Hardwicke Stakes at Royal Ascot, so he could be a good each-way option.
IQUITOS is a dual Group 1 winner. That includes the Grosser Preis von Baden. Anyway, it would be a huge surprise to see him on the podium.
ONE FOOT IN HEAVEN, DOHA DREAM and SATONO NOBLESSE look to have no chance in this company.
