Arc field down to 16


Just 16 horses remain in Sunday's Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe after the latest forfeit stage.

Zarak was withdrawn at Thursday's supplementary stage to leave a field of 16, but that could be reduced before Friday's final declaration stage.

Ante-post favourite Postponed is unbeaten in four starts this season and the five-year-old remains on course to represent Roger Varian in the Chantilly feature.

Dual Derby winner Harzand has stood his ground for Dermot Weld along with Found, Highland Reel and Order Of St George from Aidan O'Brien's Ballydoyle yard.

Kevin Ryan is reponsible for The Grey Gatsby, the only other runner from Britain or Ireland, while last year's French Derby winner New Bay is likely to take his chance for Andre Fabre.

Other leading contenders include Japanese star Makahiki and Left Hand, with Migwar, One Foot In Heaven, Silverware, Siljan's Saga, Vedevani, Talismanic and Savior Vivre completing the field.

Conor McGregor will fight Eddie Alvarez for the lightweight belt at UFC 205 in New York on November 12 live on the eir Sport pack. The eir Sport pack is free to all eir broadband customers. To learn more about setting sport free visit www.eir.ie/sport .
