2010 Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe Early Betting Preview

September 20th, 2010

The 2010 Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe is almost here, and bookies have already put out early fixed odds on the event.

Run this year on October 3, this famous Group 1 distance race is contested over 2,400 metres at Longchamp Racecourse and draws many of Europe’s top thoroughbreds. Leading in the early odds for the Arc de Triomphe at Ladbrokes.com.au this year is Behkabad at a very short $4.50.

The French 3 year old Behkabad is the winner of many French Group races, including a win earlier this year in the Group 1 Grand Prix de Paris and a recent win in the Group 2 Prix Niel. Both of these races are also run at the 2,400 metre mark at Longchamp Racecourse, so you could not ask for better preparation than Behkabad has had.

Following closely in the odds is Fame and Glory at $5.00 to win. An Irish contender with wins in this year’s Gold Cup and Coronation Cup, Fame and Glory has plenty of experience at distances similar to that of the Arc de Triomphe. With the hot streak he is on at the moment, Fame and Glory does look to have the momentum to take the Arc.
