Who is the Arc Favorite?

03.09.2011 The Irish Champion Stakes from Leopardstown. The Aidan O'Brien trained So You Think ridden by Seamus (Seamie) (J A) Heffernan win the Group 1 Red Mills Irish Champion Stakes
BOOKMAKERS were on Saturday at odds over whether Sarafina would win her pre-race battle for favouritism with So You Think for Sunday's Qatar Prix De L'Arc De Triomphe, with the Alain de Royer-Dupre-trained four-year-old a best-priced 9-2 for Europe's richest race.

Coral spokesman Simon Clare said: "Patriotic support for Sarafina will see her start a much shorter price on the PMU but I can also see the British punters favouring her over So You Think."

However David Williams of Ladbrokes said: "It is impossible to confidently predict who will be sent off favourite for this year's Arc. Sarafina has been weak for the past 48 hours and if the big money arrives for So YouThink he could easily topple the filly at the front of the market."

The Arc field can expect "perfect ground", according to Longchamp clerk of the course Christian Delporte, speaking on the eve of the 90th renewal of the Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe.
