We bring you the latest ante-post betting markets after a big weekend of action, including 2020 Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe odds and 2021 Guineas betting.

Flat racing fans had a feast of action to enjoy over the weekend. Not only did we see the final Classic of the season handed out at Doncaster, but we also had Irish Champions Weekend and some key Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe trials from Longchamp to enjoy.

Let’s recap some of this weekend’s star performers, and how their victories have impacted various ante-post betting markets.

Let’s start with the Arc, which takes place at Longchamp, which takes place on Sunday 4th October. Love and Enable remain locked in battle at the head of the betting, but there’ve been some interesting moves behind the top two.

Ghaiyyath sat third in the market when the starter sent them on their merry way in the Irish Champion Stakes. William Buick went straight to the front, with many expecting a carbon-copy of the front-running victories Ghaiyyath secured in the Coronation Cup, Coral-Eclipse and Juddmonte International earlier in the season.

Magical, who’d finished behind Ghaiyyath at York, took much closer order this time around, pulling upsides the leader as they rounded the bend at Leopardstown. This time, Ghaiyyath wasn’t able to pull clear, and Aidan O’Brien’s filly prevailed late on to retain her Irish Champion Stakes crown.

Magical was then cut from 20/1 into 8/1 to win the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe with Betfair. Betfair also pushed Ghaiyyath out from 8s to 12/1.

Stradivarius warmed up for a surprise tilt at the Arc in the Prix Foy on Sunday. John Gosden’s star stayer was backed into odds-on before the off, but couldn’t find a way past Anthony Van Dyck, who stayed on strongly to claim his first win since scooping Derby glory at Epsom in 2019.

The second Arc Trial at Longchamp, the Prix Vermeille also went the way of Ireland, as Dermot Weld’s Tarnawa destroyed hot-favourite Raabihah. Christophe Soumillon’s mount powered home from the rear of the field, beating the home favourite by a convincing three lengths.

Betfair quickly installed Tarnawa as a 16/1 shot in the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe betting, with Anthony Van Dyck moving into 16s from 25/1 with bet365.

Bet365 also pushed Raabihah out from 8s to 16/1, with Stradivarius drifting even further afield, landing on a fresh price of 20/1 to win Europe’s most prestigious flat race.

Aidan O’Brien went toe-to-toe with his two sons in the Moyglare Stud Stakes at Leopardstown on Sunday. The youngest of the three O’Brien’s, Donnacha came out on top, as Shale got the better of Pretty Gorgeous to hand the fledgling trainer his second Group One triumph.

Shale and the beaten favourite, Pretty Gorgeous saw their odds for the Fillies’ Mile cut on the back of that display, and both can currently be found at 5/1 with William Hill.

The current market leader for this important Group One is Indigo Girl, who outlined her own Fillies’ Mile intentions with an excellent win in the May Hill Stakes at Doncaster on Friday. John Gosden’s mount looks a highly-progressive filly, and she’s impeccably bred. William Hill is taking no chances with Indigo Girl, making her their 5/2 favourite for the Fillies’ Mile, which will be run at Newmarket on Friday 9th October.

The following afternoon, some of the finest juvenile colts in the business will battle it out in the Dewhurst Stakes. Plenty of top-colts announced their Dewhurst intentions over the weekend, none-more-so than Thunder Moon, who powered to victory in the Vincent O’Brien National Stakes.

Prior to the National Stakes,  Lucky Vega, Master Of The Seas and Battleground had dominated the market. After Battleground came out, Thunder Moon was backed into a single-figure price, and Joseph O’Brien’s colt rewarded his supporters with an excellent victory over two of his father, Aidan’s two-year-olds, Wembley and St Mark’s Basilica.

Thunder Moon now tops the Dewhurst Stakes betting on a price of 5/2. Sitting just behind Joseph O’Brien’s colt we find Chindit and Albasheer, the front two from Saturday’s Champagne Stakes at Doncaster. Master Of The Seas drifted back to 7/1 for the Dewhurst, after fading to eventually finish fourth at Leopardstown. Battleground remains a 6/1 shot, with Lucky Vega – who didn’t seem to see out the seven-furlong trip on Sunday – also drifting to 7/1.

Prix Vermeile winner, Tarnawa comes into 6/1 second-favouritism, with Fancy Blue and Peaceful – who were both beaten by Champers Elysses in the Matron Stakes – also sitting on single-figure prices to win on Champions Day.
