The first Sunday in October means just one thing, Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe day. Europe's most prestigious flat race was first staged at Paris-Longchamp in 1920, and has been won by true greats like Corrida, Mill Reef, Treve and Enable.

We're now just mere hours away from this most famous of races taking place. Let's take a look through the current Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe betting and run through the likely runners.

Torquator Tasso caused an almighty shock when he won this race 12 months ago, returning the highest SP in the history of the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe. Marcel Weiss' star has since proved that run wasn't a fluke with a Group Two win in Germany and a cracking run to finish second on unsuitably fast ground in the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes. A small drift followed a shock defeat in the Grosser Preis von Baden, but the defending champion has been backed into third-favouritism since the ground at Longchamp turned very soft.

The Arc had been mooted as a target for the all-conquering Baaeed, after he maintained his 100% record with a stunning victory in the Juddmonte International Stakes at York. Yet, despite William Haggas openly saying a run at Longchamp was possible, Baaeed was withdrawn from the Arc field earlier this month.

Sitting atop the betting is Aidan O'Brien's Luxembourg, who claimed his second Group One victory when beating Onesto and Vadeni in the Irish Champion Stakes. Onesto was a big drifter prior to that run at Leopardstown and was understandably cut for the Arc after a hugely impressive runner-up finish.

Japanese racing has never been in a better place, and Toru Kiruta's Titleholder will travel to Longchamp on the back of two impressive Group One victories on home soil. Alpinista made it five Group One wins in a row in the Yorkshire Oaks in August, and Sir Mark Prescott's mare also sits prominently in the market.

Vadeni has been well-backed since connections confirmed their intentions to run in the Arc. As have Irish Derby hero Westover, beaten Prix Neil favourite Do Deuce and Jean-Claude Rouget's improving three-year-old Al Hakeem. Group One winners like Mishriff, Mare Australlis, Broome and Alenquer can be backed at lengthy prices.
