SILVESTRE DE SOUSA: Longchamp Sunday thoughts

It’s a huge weekend for horseracing with the pick of the action being the Arc de Triomphe on Sunday where all eyes will be on Enable as she goes for a record third win. There is also Group One action at Newmarket on Saturday but unfortunately the weather has claimed the cracking card at Ascot where I had four nice rides to look forward to.



Arc de Triomphe

I really enjoyed filming the Zoom Room preview of the Arc meeting earlier in the week with Johnny Ward and Bill Esdaile (see below). Sadly, Love has been taken out of the race which is a real shame. The ground looks set to be really bad, but I still reckon Enable will re-write the history books. In fact, I think John Gosden will train the first two home with the strong stayer Stradivarius set to chase her home…
