2.10. Prix De ' L Arc De Triomphe in Chantilly

... and not in Longchamp due to construction work. In their 47th attempt now the
Japanese try to win that race and this time Makahiki carries their hopes. I was told
he is even better , than Nakayama Festa and Orfevre, who both missed victory by
a short margin in recent years. Also the Japanese are wise enough meanwhile to put
French ace Christophe Lemiere on board and not one of their own jockeys, who
have a tendency to misjudge the pace.

Makahiki certainly belongs on the shortlist, though i feel the party will be spoiled
again probably through the fav Postponed (IRE) or my two picks against the field,
which are LEFT HAND and SAVOIR VIVRE (IRE). Left Hand won the Prix Ver-
meille three weeks ago, what convinced his owners, the Wertheimer Brothers, to
enter him in this race and they know, what it takes to win it. Savoir Vivre finnished
second in the German Derby and subsequently won the Deauville Grand Prix.
His trainer and stable are not very prolific, so in my opinion he flies a little bit under
the radar and represents good value. Both are available @ odds around 20, though
i guess they will drift, when the Japanese punters get their bets down on race day.

After popular demand here once again the clip with Japanese punters in agony.
