Heffernan did his homework

Seamie Heffernan has been watching old renewals of the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe in an attempt to plot the best path to success on So You Think at Longchamp today.
The jockey has been burning the midnight oil ahead of the biggest ride of his career on Aidan O'Brien's giant Australian import. The question that seems to be on the lips of every pundit is whether So You Think will be as effective over a mile and a half given all of his best form is over 10 furlongs.
"I've only ever ridden him over a mile and a quarter and I've been very happy with him over that trip," said Heffernan. "The Arc is the Arc and if you don't run them, you don't find out. Hopefully everything works out. The bigger field might help him."
