Connections high on Galikova's Arc chances

CONNECTIONS of Galikova reckon the Prix Vermeille winner has a solid chance of becoming just the third three-year-old filly in 30 years to win the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe.

The Freddy Head-trained daughter of Galileo is as short as 6-1 to win at Longchamp on Sunday, having won impressively over the course and distance last time.

Head won the race four times as a jockey, two of those successes coming on three-year-old fillies in the shape of San San in 1972 and Three Troikas in 1979,and he reckons the weight that Galikova will receive from the horses in front of her in the betting gives her a great chance.

Galikova will get 8lb from favourite Sarafina and 11lb from both So You Think and Workforce and Head said: "I won two with three-year-old fillies when I was a jockey so I know that three-year-old fillies do well in the race. The weight is very good for them because they receive a lot of weight."
