2010 Arc de Triomphe Betting

September 29th, 2010

As we close in on the race, the 2010 Arc de Triomphe betting is remaining quite steady as the race favourites seem to be locked in. This is great news for punters who like to take early odds, as you can get odds right now that are much better than they will be come race day.

Still topping the early odds over at Ladbrokes.com.au is Behkabad at $4.50 to win. This really does all come down to Behkabad’s wins in top races at the same distance as the Arc de Triomphe (2400m), as well as his experience at Longchamp Racecourse. While $4.50 is quite short for early odds, it’s certain that these odds will get shorter on race day.

Comparatively, the second favourite Fame and Glory is not even close to being as well-prepared for the race, yet the Arc de Triomphe betting odds have him at just $5.00 to win. His Gold Cup and Coronation Cup wins may have gotten him a lot of support in Ireland and the UK, and it is the best prep for the Arc that a British horse could reasonably get, but is it good enough to beat Behkabad?

Another potential champion in the race is Workforce, in the Arc de Triomphe betting at $6.00 to win. In a short racing career, Workforce has taken two wins and a second place in five starts. Most of these races have been over 2000 metres in length as well, so the young colt has proven himself to be a stayer.

Planteur has also intrigued punters, and is getting odds of $7.00 to win in the 2010 Arc de Triomphe betting. Finishing behind Behkabad in his last two starts, Planteur has not won a race since his Prix Noailles win in April. Regardless, his losses to Behkabad were by razor thin margins and so the slightest shift of fortunes in his favour could give him the race.
