Ray Flanagan offers Prix Del Arc Day at Longchamp selections
A magnificent renewal of the famous race but with conditions racing very soft there might be a shock in the offing.
3 pts ew- Broome-3.05 Longchamp- 50-1 P Power/ SkyBet-5 places (Would not appear good enough on paper especially factoring in King George form. Broome, though ,is an out and out stayer who will relish a fastly run big field race on very soft ground. Looks well worth a decent each-way bet with five places on offer with some firms.)
1 pt ew- Thundering Nights-3.50 Longchamp-12-1 P Power- 4 places (Decent enough level of form in Ireland which may have been underestimated by both punters and pundits. Will not mind soft conditions and capable of bold showing for in-form stable.)
1 pt ew-Njord-5.00 Longchamps-14-1 P Power- 4 places ( Similarly soft ground enhances his chance and this durable handicapper is well capable of running another big run having been somewhat unlucky at Leopardstown latest)
