THE Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe is the race that stops a continent.
Worth a stonking £4.3million, Europe’s richest contest always throws up a top class winner.

And with it comes an absolute stack of cash for some of the best yards in the world.
This year’s race over 1½ miles takes place at Longchamp on Sunday October 3 – and it looks to be an absolute stonker.
Epsom Oaks winner Snowfall was the runaway favourite but has now drifted massively after her shock defeat to Teona – who has since been ruled out of the race on account of the expected going – in Paris.
Meanwhile, Dermot Weld’s Tarnawa has plummeted in price after finishing runner-up to St Mark’s Basilica at the Irish Champions Weekend and is now favourite ahead of Adayar thanks to her preferable draw.
Adayar, the Epsom Derby hero, and Snowfall were supplemented at a cost of just over £100,000.
Paddy Power’s Paul Binfield said: “The draw has finally allowed us to separate Tarnawa and Adayar at the head of the market with the former’s three berth meaning she’s now clear favourite with Adayar eased out a fraction due to a seemingly unfavourable stall 11.”

Arc de Triomphe 2021 tips
SunSport tipster Templegate will bring you his tip before the race.
Dermot Weld certainly holds a very strong hand in Tarnawa, who lost nothing in defeat to St Mark’s Basilica in the Irish Champion Stakes.
One to keep an eye on is Japanese horse Deep Bond, who has been slashed in price since seeing off Broome by just over a length in the Qatar Prix Foy.
The four-year-old has won £1,694,062 in just ten races.
What’s the going for the Arc de Triomphe?
The going is set to be soft with rain forecast for Sunday – which could favour this huge 50-1 shot.
Matthieu Vincent, director of racecourses and training centres at France Galop, says we are heading towards ‘very soft’ ground come Sunday.
Teona, who beat Snowfall in the Prix Vermeille this month, has been declared a non runner on account of the ground.
Philip Robinson, racing manager to owner Ali Saeed, said: “Teona has not been declared for the Arc as the ground is set to be soft, which she didn’t act on in the Epsom Oaks and took a long time to get over.
“It’s a bit frustrating as she’s in great form at home but we feel it’s best to keep her for the Breeders’ Cup.”
