Great Heavens added to Arc field

JOHN Gosden's Irish Oaks winner Great Heavens has been supplemented for the Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe at Longchamp on Sunday.

Not sighted since her brilliant display at the Curragh in July, the Lady Rothschild-owned filly was expected to line up in the Qipco British Champions Fillies' And Mares' Stakes at Ascot on October 20.

However, with stable companion Nathaniel a significant withdrawal earlier in the week after suffering a setback, Rothschild and Gosden have decided to add Great Heavens to the field for Europe's premier middle-distance prize.

Bayrir and Saonois have also been supplemented as anticipated, while Reliable Man is the only withdrawal, leaving a field of 18 possible runners.
