It’s nice to see an Irish-trained horse head the market for Europe’s richest race, with Aidan O’Brien’s Luxembourg generally available at 3/1 for tomorrow’s Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe at Longchamp (3.05).

O’Brien won it a couple of times, his latest success with Found in 2016, and while Luxembourg’s season didn’t quite go to plan because of an injury, he looked full of class when winning the Irish Champion Stakes at Leopardstown last month.
