Harzand among 19 confirmations for Sunday's Arc

Harzand looks set to take his place in Sunday's Prix de lArc de Triomphe after recovering sufficiently from the injury he sustained during the Irish Champion Stakes three weeks ago.

Jockey Pat Smullen, who has ridden the 3yo in all of his six races, confirmed the news to At The Races on Tuesday.

"Harzand's in tremendous form, I'm really happy with him," Smullen said. "I rode him (Tuesday morning) and he felt well, it's all systems go.

"It looks like the ground is going to be on the quick side but you never know, they might get a drop of rain between now and raceday. Hopefully it's not an over-big field, you don't want to be out on the wing."

Roger Varian's Postponed continues to top the ante-post market after an unbeaten season that has seen him land the Sheema Classic in Dubai, the Coronation Cup at Epsom and the Juddmonte International at York.

The only other potential runner for Britain is Kevin Ryan's The Grey Gatsby while Aidan O'Brien has left in Found, Order Of St George and Highland Reel for Ireland.
