Enable

After the final classic of the season, the St Leger at Doncaster, attention now turns to the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe.

Europe’s most prestigious horse race returns to ParisLongchamp after two years at Chantilly, with Enable pencilled in as the short-price favourite.

Who will come out on top in the 1m 4f contest? Ladbrokes runs the rule over the ante-post betting.

Favourites

Wonder-filly Enable is the 11/10 favourite to retain her crown after returning from injury to comfortably defeat Crystal Ocean in the September Stakes last time out.

Sea Of Class recorded a second successive Group 1 triumph in the Yorkshire Oaks last month. She’s 6/1 for William Haggas.

Enable’s trainer John Gosden could also run Coronation Cup winner Cracksman. The four-year-old is 7/1 but is only likely to turn up if there’s significant cut in the ground.

Andre Fabre’s Waldgeist is the best hope for the French. The Galileo colt landed the Prix Foy over the weekend and is 9/1 to provide Fabre with a first win in this since 2006.

Wild Illusion and With You also hold entries, though neither have a quote thus far.

Double-figure fancies

Kew Gardens further enhanced his middle distance credentials with victory in the St Leger. A drop to 1m 4f wouldn’t be ideal but Aidan O’Brien’s charge is available at 14/1.

King George and Queen Elizabeth II Stakes 1-2 Poet’s Word and Crystal Ocean are 16/1 apiece. The latter has form to find on Enable after their recent duel at Kempton.

O’Brien may also opt to supplement Forever Together after the three-year-old impressed behind Sea Of Class in the Irish Oaks in July.

The Galileo filly is 20/1 and would appreciate soft ground or better.

Long-odds outsiders 

Stradivarius and Lah Ti Dar are both available at 25/1, although the pair appear destined to head to British Champions Day at Ascot instead.

It could be a similar story for Kitesurf, while Study Of Man will need a significant step up to challenge over 1m 4f if entered.

However, it’s Brundtland who piques our interest at a tasty price. The Godolphin runner completed the hat-trick with a course and distance win at Longchamp on Sunday. He’s 25/1.

Capri and Defoe are slightly further back at 33/1 alongside a number of other runners, including Talismanic and Knight To Behold.
