Strong Irish representation at Longchamp for Arc weekend

The John Oxx-trained Goodwood Cup winner Saddlers Rock is one of 14 possible runners in the Prix du Cadran at Longchamp on Sunday.

He could be joined in the line-up by Ascot Gold Cup victor Colour Vision. Goodwood runner-up Askar Tau has been confirmed, while High Jinx, who was second in the Lonsdale and the Doncaster Cup, could also make the final field.

Moyglare winner Sky Lantern and Aidan O’Brien’s Magical Dream are amongst the big names for the Prix Marcel Boussac, while Purr Along, Agent Allison and My Special J’s add further interest.

Ballydoyle dominate the Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere with five entries, which include Cristoforo Colombo, with Ashdan and Taayel from the John Gosden yard having also been confirmed.

Richard Hannon’s Olympic Glory and the David Lanigan-trained No Jet Lag also have the option.

Sole Power and last year’s hero Tangerine Trees are part of a strong British contingent in the Prix de l’Abbaye, for which 23 horses are still in the hat, at Longchamp on Sunday.

July Cup winner Mayson, Maarek, Swiss Spirit, Borderlescott and Spirit Quartz are among the huge overseas party, with Wizz Kid the sole French interest.

Eleven thoroughbreds, including the O’Brien-trained Starspangledbanner and Clive Cox’s Lethal Force, are still in contention for the Prix de la Foret.
