Check out our best bets for Arc weekend at Longchamp

One of Europe's most prestigious events lights up Longchamp on Sunday afternoon as the Prix de l'arc De Triomphe will see the premier middle distance performers scorch the French turf in what is set to be a hum-dinger of a renewal. However, there will be a real Flat extravaganza over the weekend at Longchamp and lots of the action will take place in front of the ITV Racing cameras, and our man Steve Chambers picks out his best bets for the weekend here...

Saturday - 13:33 Longchamp - Qatar Prix de Royallieu

Unable to make the cut for the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe on Sunday former Melbourne Cup winner Verry Elleegant has been re-routed to the Group 1 Prix de Royallieu on Saturday and the seven-year-old mare will be a leading fancy for the 1m 6f contest, and she has to be the one they all have to beat. However, there's a fascinating Aidan O'Brien-trained raider in the shape of EMILY DICKINSON, who makes much more appeal at 5/1 with the bookmakers.

Yet to train the winner of this prestigious Group 1 for fillies and mares, Emily Dickinson could be the starlet to shine brightest as she ran an absolute cracker when fifth in the St Leger at Doncaster in September, as she was only beaten three lengths by impressive winner Eldar Eldarov. She may only have one win to her name from eight career starts and that came in maiden company at Naas, but she's run well in some decent events this campaign, and receiving weight from her older rivals like Verry Elleegant then she could well bound to victory for Ballydoyle on Saturday.

Saturday - 15:25 Longchamp - Qatar Prix du Cadran

A sensation in the staying division this season, Aidan O'Brien's Kyprios looks to cement his status as the prominent stayer in Europe by bounding to Prix du Cadran glory at Longchamp and the Ballydoyle raider is a red-hot 4/5 favourite to claim a sixth win out of six this campaign. The Gold Cup hero has leapfrogged the likes of Stradivarius and Trueshan to become the top stayer this campaign, and only a long season could hinder his chances, but he looks a rock-solid jolly for this event.

So much is his dominance in the betting that there could be value elsewhere and the classy six-year-old SKAZINO could be overpriced at its current 20/1 is the each-way value in the race. A seven-and-a-half length fourth in this race 12 months ago behind Trueshan, Skazino showed his class earlier in the campaign when winning a Group 2 event at Longchamp over two miles and a repeat of that effort should see him go close. The extra four furlongs could be his downfall here, but he's most certainly one of the proven class acts of the race and he should be able to make it into the top three.

Sunday - 15:05 Longchamp - Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe

An enthralling renewal of the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe will be the feature race on Sunday afternoon as a field jam-packed with quality will do battle for one of Europe's most prestigious Flat race and last year's winner Torquator Tasso will bid to retain a crown he won 12 months ago with a shock win. Aidan O'Brien's Luxembourg is the current market leader, while the likes of Sir Mark Prescott's winning machine Alpinista and French raider Vadeni will be notable contenders at the head of the market.

But, with a maximum field of 20 heading to post then there's some eye-catching each-way opportunities for punters and the 40/1 outsider SEALIWAY could prove to be an excellent value play against the aforementioned fancied quartet. Francis-Henri Graffard's four-year-old is having his second crack at the Arc and he didn't disgrace himself last season when finishing an excellent fifth, and he kicked on from that run by landing the prestigious Champion Stakes at Ascot on British Champions Day. He's failed to get his head in front this campaign, but has been trying his luck at the highest level with regularity and hasn't been disgraced, and while the step back up to 1m 4f may not be ideal, he is sure to have benefited from last year's experience and he can duly grab a place at monster odds.

Sunday - 16:25 Longchamp - Prix de l'Abbaye

Richard Fahey's The Platinum Queen looks tailor-made for the Prix de l'Abbaye as she has a sparkling turn of foot from the gates and in receipt of huge weight from the rest of the field on Sunday she could well steamroller clear to land the 5f dash. However, not since 1978 has a two-year-old been victorious in the Group 1 sprint, so the 11/4 available is worth taking on and a value alternative is the way to go.

One that could run well at a price is Clive Cox's CATURRA, who is a whopping 33/1 to land this prize, and has to recapture his best form, but last year's Flying Childers Stakes winner showed he had speed to burn as a juvenile and if he can show that here then he could play a role. Last seen finishing way down the field in the Flying Five Stakes at the Curragh, he had shown positive signs earlier in the season when third in the King George Stakes at Glorious Goodwood over five furlongs, so if he can replicate that run here he could cause a monster shock.
