Love now favourite for Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe with Enable still strong in market

The three-year-old filly is as short as 7/2 following her Oaks display.

After a busy weekend of racing, Love has shot to the top of the Arc market following a scintillating display in the Oaks.

The three-year-old filly won the Oaks in incredible fashion by 9 lengths, justifying 11/10 favouritism. Bookmakers were quick to react, and cut her as short as 7/2 for the Arc from 20/1 before the race. She is a best price of 4/1

She has taken a massive 72% of all bets for the race through oddschecker over the weekend. Enable is the second most popular horse since Saturday, but a long way behind Love, with 8% of all bets.

She has now won both the 1000 Guineas and the Oaks this year and if Aidan O'Brien decides to go to the Arc with her, she will be a massive player.

Two time Arc winner and last year year's runner-up, Enable, could only manage second in the Coral-Eclipse, unable to make up the ground on Ghaiyyath in the closing stages.

Frankie Dettori didn't give the superstar mare a hard time though, and she will come on plenty for the run.

 

With this in mind, her price has largely stayed the same to make it a third Arc. She is a best price of 5/1 with a few firms, but as short as 7/2 with one. 

The Arc is clearly the main aim this season so to run such a pleasing effort on her seasonal reappearance was very encouraging.

Ghaiyyath, who was big as 25/1 before Sunday, has been cut into a best price of 9/1 following another brilliant front running display. The globetrotting five-year-old has now put in two mightily impressive displays this season, answering a lot of the doubts that people had about him.

Punters think Enable will be able to overturn the form with him if they meet again at Longchamp, but the King George later this month may be where they lock horns again first.

However, currently, both are behind Love in the market, who could put together an unforgettable campaign this season.

Her Oaks effort was her best to date and really wet the appetite for when she goes up against older horses. Aidan O'Brien has another star on his hands, she looks very special and entirely deserves her place at the top of the betting for the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe.
