Bookies Hoping For Result In The Arc

Treve is the Even-Money favourite for the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe with William Hill and there remains a steady stream of support for her, despite her price being pushed out from 8-11 since the start of the week.


“Treve will be incredibly popular in France on the day, while British punters are keen on Golden Horn. Both horses have cost us fortunes already this year and we’re hoping the Arc may produce a surprise winner,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.


Jack Hobbs was the notable scratching from the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe line-up after the latest stage, with John Gosden determining that he would not face his stablemate Golden Horn and instead be routed to the Champion Stakes for which he is the 11-4 favourite with William Hill.


Free Eagle has entered the equation for trainer Dermot Weld and is a 16-1 chance with William Hill. He has only had six starts so far and remains open to progress, having won the Prince Of Wales’s Stakes at Ascot in June, before being bumped around by Golden Horn in the Irish Champion Stakes.
