Templegate is confident that Continuous has what it takes to win the Prix De L’Arc De Triomphe, the biggest race in the calendar. Backed by stellar performances in his last two runs, Continuous is set to dominate his rivals on Sunday. Paddy Power has even boosted the odds to 9-1, making it an enticing bet.
Continuous' winning streak
Continuous has been on a winning streak, impressing spectators with his victory at Doncaster earlier this month. Jockey Ryan Moore's decision to take up the running proved to be the right move as Continuous effortlessly crossed the finish line. With equally impressive performances in the Great Voltigeur at York in August, Continuous has proven that he can handle the Arc distance.
While Continuous has beaten the same horses at York and Doncaster, there are lingering doubts about the quality of his rivals. Additionally, the two-week gap between the St Leger and the Arc raises questions about Continuous' readiness. However, trainer Aidan O'Brien wouldn't run him if he didn't think the colt was prepared.
Worth the wait
Despite these concerns, Continuous has convincingly defeated his rivals in past races. Paddy Power's boosted odds of 9-1 are more than fair, but it may be worth waiting until the colt is officially supplemented before placing a bet.
Rivals to watch out for
Ace Impact, the current favorite, has impressed with his victories in the French Derby and at Deauville. While it's uncertain if he will handle the extra quarter-mile, he is certainly a contender. Hukum, who won the King George VI at Ascot, could also pose a threat with his staying power and favorable ground conditions.
While there are strong contenders in the race, Templegate believes that Continuous is up to Arc-winning standard and is likely to take another step forward. With his current form, Continuous is set to dominate the field and take home the prestigious victory.
Bet on Continuous
If you want to back Templegate's pick and take advantage of Paddy Power's boosted odds of 9-1, now is the time to place your bet. Remember to gamble responsibly!
