Workforce Prepares for Arc Title Defense

WORKFORCE continued his preparation for the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe on Sunday week with a racecourse gallop at Sandown on Tuesday.

Last year's Arc and Derby winner worked over nine furlongs with stablemates Dux Scholar and Confront. Confront led the trio before Workforce was pushed to lead three furlongs out, going on to finish narrowly ahead of Dux Scholar.


Ryan Moore took the ride on Workforce, despite still not being entirely recovered from the arm injury that has kept him off the racecourse since Glorious Goodwood.

A lot will depend on the turf condition at Longchamp.
Workforce hasn't been disgraced in any of his races this season by any means. But that said, Workforce also doesn't look nearly the same horse as a 4yr.old that we saw smash the Epsom Derby record and win the Arc as a 3yr.old. In my opinion, you're just throwing $$$ away if you're backing Workforce for a repeat Arc win this year. Sarafina, So You Think, Galikova, Snow Fairy, Reliable Man, and possibly even St Nicholas Abbey are all likely to get home ahead of Workforce at Longchamp this year, IMO.
