Britain With One Hand On The Arc?
William Hill have released a new market on the chances of a British-trained winner of the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe.
William Hill are 6-4 that the 2015 Arc winner is trained in Britain. In other words, it’s more likely that there is a British-trained champion than Treve winning a third Arc title.
“Golden Horn may lead a bumper British contingent for this year’s Arc and the UK raiding party to Longchamp could stop Treve in her tracks,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
The last British-trained winner of the Arc was Sir Michael Stoute’s Workforce in 2010.
Ahead of this weekend, Golden Horn is a heavy odds-on favourite for the Eclipse and has shortened from 2-5 to 1-3 with William Hill.
“Despite Golden Horn being odds-on, it’s still not deterring punters who seem to think he’s the biggest certainty since Frankel,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
And like Frankel, Golden Horn is unbeaten – William Hill quote 7-1 that John Gosden’s colt remains undefeated in 2015.
