Horseracing fans in for a treat on Sunday with top quality card at ChantillyPublished September 26, 2017
Order Of St George – 12-1 e.w. sportingbet for Arc
Ryan Moore To Ride Order Of St George in Arc – 4-1 Ladbrokes
Signs Of Blessing – 7-1 Betfair Sportsbook for Prix de L’Abbaye
Sobetsu – 5-1 William Hill for Prix de L’Opera
ITV Cameras head to Chantilly on Sunday to cover one of the best Flat cards of the season, the feature being the Qatar Prix de L’Arc de Triomphe, Europe’s richest race with prize money totalling 5 million euro. Betting for the 1m 4f contest is dominated by the outstanding filly Enable who is easily the most likely winner but at odds-on the daughter of Nathaniel is worth opposing with a value each-way alternative and with testing ground almost guaranteed the Aidan O’Brien-trained Order Of St George makes plenty of appeal at the 12-1 on offer with sportingbet.
Stamina is going to play a significant role in this year’s race if weather forecasters have got it right, something which holds no fears for the 2016 Ascot Gold Cup winner. Third place in last year’s Arc showed the five-year-old to be no one-trick pony and the son of Galileo goes into the 2017 renewal in tremendous form following a bloodless win in the Irish St Leger earlier this month. Ladbrokes offer 4-1 about Ryan Moore partnering Order Of St George in preference to Winter, Highland Reel and Capri, odds which look very generous with the possibility of heavy ground prevailing.
Massive performance from Order of St George. What a horse he's been. Congrats to connections. 🏆 https://t.co/ZGCsmNII8e— AIRO (@AIRO_Owner) September 10, 2017
The supporting card includes the Group 1 Prix de L’Abbaye which can go to the main home contender Signs Of Blessing ( 7-1 with Betfair Sportsbook ) who has won his last two starts at Chantilly. The six-year-old made all for a comfortable victory at Deauville last time and should take plenty of catching at the chief expense of last year’s winner Marsha.

With Winter expected to take her chance in the Arc the Charlie Appleby-trained Sobetsu should take plenty of beating in the Group 1 Prix de L’Opera. Beaten less than two lengths by Ballydoyle’s dual Guineas winner in Goodwood’s Nassau Stakes the daughter of Dubawi has since gone on to record a comfortable victory at Deauville and with soft ground unlikely to inconvenience the filly rates a fair bet at the 5-1 available with William Hill.
