Arc de Triomphe: Templegate tip, complete runner guide, latest odds and weather forecast for ‘world’s best race’

, Arc de Triomphe: Templegate tip, complete runner guide, latest odds and weather forecast for ‘world’s best race’

‘THE world’s best race’, the Arc de Triomphe, is back on Sunday October 2 – and it looks like being a cracker.

Baaeed won’t run, but the field is still stacking up for the £5million betting bonanza in Paris.

Torquator Tasso sprung an 80-1 shock in the Arc de Triomphe last year

Won down the years by superstars such as Enable and Sea The Stars, whoever passes the post first this year can lay claim to being among the very best in the world.

But that’s not to say the race doesn’t throw up its fair share of shocks.

Who can forget last year, when 80-1 Torquator Tasso surged home to win.

Here, Sun Racing takes a look at all the latest runners and top tipster Templegate reveals his ante-post pick.

Templegate’s Arc de Triomphe tip

ALPINISTA looks rock solid for the Arc.

She continued her fantastic winning streak when taking the Yorkshire Oaks in fine style last month to make it a brilliant five Group 1 wins in a row.

She stays the distance well and performs on any ground, so it won’t matter what the weather is doing in Paris.

She came up against reigning Arc champion Torquator Tasso in Germany last summer and gave him a proper hiding, which is another plus.

Sir Mark Prescott’s superstar will head to France a fresh horse and looks a fair price to make the frame at least.

Coral’s John Hill said: “The addition of Coral-Eclipse winner Vadeni will make the Arc an even stronger race this year.

“He needs to bounce back from his run at Leopardstown, however he was not far behind Luxembourg, so he is likely to have his supporters in the betting.”

Arc de Triomphe weather forecast

The Arc was run on heavy going last year.

The forecast for the days before the race this year shows the French capital can expect quite a bit of rain.

According to, Longchamp racecourse can expect rain every day from four days before the race.
