Lucky 15 horse racing betting tips from Longchamp on Sunday.
It’s Arc Day, the sun is shining in Paris, and all eyes are on Longchamp for what promises to be a fantastic day’s racing.
When SOLE POWER (5/2 bet365) gets the necessary breaks he is nigh on unbeatable over five furlongs and that is exactly what connections expect of him this afternoon. Richard Hughes rides him better than any other jockey and, back to his favourite trip, he is the one they all have to try and hold off inside the final furlong.
Trainer John Quinn is pretty adamant that THE WOW SIGNAL (7/4 William Hill) is the best two-year-old he has had in his care and an unbeaten record that includes the Prix Morny suggests he is top class. I suspect this may well be his last race of the season before a well deserved rest but if he is a serious Classics contender for 2015, then he needs to win this and do so with aplomb.
This may be one of the most competitive Arc’s in recent memory with any number of runners good enough to take this valuable prize. A recent visit to the Newmarket gallops included a conversation with Taghrooda’s trainer John Gosden who, although more than happy with his own charge, kept on mentioning Japanese raider JUST A WAY (7/1 Coral). We all know his stamina is a little questionable and he has never won beyond 10 furlongs but he destroyed his field in the Dubai Duty Free and won his prep race in Tokyo all be it running on strongly over a mile. If he gets home (and these are often falsely run races followed by a sprint for the line), then he is the one they all have to beat.
OLYMPIC GLORY (5/1 Ladbrokes) has not really lived up to connection’s high expectations this season but back in France he can be a different kettle of fish and may get the cut in the ground he needs these days too be seen at his best. It does look rather as if his whole season has been geared toward this event and with the absence of Kingman, he could well win what may be his last contest before retirement to stud.
