Racing fans from around the world are descending on Longchamp in Paris this weekend for the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe - Europe’s richest flat race, boasting a prize-money pot of €5 million.

A Group 1 race, open to thoroughbred horses aged three and over, 'the Arc' has been dominated in recent years by trainer John Gosden's Enable.

The thoroughbred returns to Paris once more this year with Frankie Dettori as jockey in a bid to win the race for a record third consecutive time.

Enable is being well backed by the bookies to pull off the feat, and the clear favourite will have to fight off the challenge of a smaller than usual field of just 11 other horses this time out.

The five-year-old's main rivals this year both appear to come from Aidan O'Brien's stable with his pair of Japan - drawn next to Enable in stall 10 - and Magical both also strongly tipped.

The great news once again for viewers in the UK is that the Arc will be shown live on free-to-air ITV.
