In the least surprising development of the year, Adayar and Snowfall have been supplemented for Sunday’s Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe at a cost of €120,000 a pop.
We could be looking at a field of 16 for the most prestigious race in Europe with the Epsom Derby and Oaks winners added to the group that stood their ground at the first forfeit stage on Monday.
Adayar is the joint-favourite in Paddy’s antepost market for the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe at 5/2, while Snowfall is available at 5/1 having slipped from the top of the early betting following her defeat to Teona in the Prix Vermeille earlier this month.
William Buick will ride Adayar, with James Doyle on board stablemate Hurricane Lane as Godolphin eye their first winner in the Group 1 blockbuster since 2002. Ryan Moore takes the mount on Snowfall for Aidan O’Brien.
Adayar is joined at the top of our antepost market by Breeders’ Cup winner Tarnawa, who was last seen running St Mark’s Basilica mightily close in a thrilling Irish Champion Stakes at Leopardstown earlier this month.
Paddy’s spokesman Paul Binfield said: “After the two big guns were added as expected today, we’re still unable to separate Adayar and Tarnawa at the front of the market with the latter currently being our biggest loser in the race.”
Epsom Derby and St Leger runner-up Mojo Star is also set to run after connections opted for a shot at the €5m race instead of a potential engagement at Ascot on Friday.
