Pedigree in a boat: verdict of the bow and prediction 1-2-3
2 Hurricane path
It all depends on the weather in Paris this week ahead of a potentially seismic clash in the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe, a race filled with the best European and international talent on offer this year.
Tarnawa, the daughter of the Aga Khan of Shamardal and the winning mare of Cape Cross Tarana, was kept in training only for a crack at this race following a four-year campaign that saw her clinch the Prix Vermeille, Prix de l’Opéra and Breeders’ Cup Turf.
After a small second at St. Mark’s Basilica now retired in the Irish Champion Stakes, the return to a mile and a half is much more his bag, especially since his mother has won twice on the trip.
Classic winner Adayar and Hurricane Lane, the two Frankel foals of Godolphin, are among the best three-year-olds who attack the heels of the older generation.
Adayar, hero of Derby and King George, is the third foal of the second winner of Irish 1,000 Guineas Group 3 Anna Salai, a daughter of Dubawi and of the family of the two-time French winner of Group 2 of the mile and a half Annaba and Park Hill Stakes goal scorer Anna of Saxe. He is bred to remain the Arc travel on both sides of his pedigree and the only real concern would be heavy ground as he does not lack a foot turn.
His teammate Hurricane Lane, meanwhile, would undoubtedly benefit from milder conditions depending on his race record and pedigree. He was an impressive winner of the St Léger – having won the Irish Derby and the Paris Grand Prix over course and distance – but has to overcome the poor record of the Leger winners in the Paris showpiece, despite being without doubt classier than most. have tried recently.
Adayar v Hurricane Lane: our experts disagree on who is the best candidate for the Arc
There is no fear as to his endurance, coming from the mare Shirocco Gale Force, who was a French list winner over an extended mile and seven stages on heavy ground. Gale Force is in turn a half-sister of Seal Of Approval, winner of the British Champions Fillies & Mares Stakes.
The exceptional three-year-old filly of this season Snowfall is heading to Longchamp after a surprise loss to his potential opponent Teona, but it is worth noting the superb record for three-year-old fillies in this race in recent years.
From the late Japanese grandfather Deep Impact, who sparked so much enthusiasm at Longchamp 15 years ago, and descended from a Group 3 winning sister of the 2016 Arc heroine Found, Snowfall has a High level pedigree in middle distance and arguably sets the standard. given the weight it will receive throughout.
Japan are yet to win France’s biggest race, but they send a live competitor in Chrono Genesis, whose runner-up behind Mishriff in Dubai reads well against the backdrop of his rivals. By another Arc winner, Bago, she was impressive winning a Japanese grade 1 in June.
His compatriot Deep Bond, winner at all levels of course and distance in the Prix Foy on test day by easily beating Broome, is another not to be underestimated.
The son of young stallion Shadai Kizuna – winner of the Japanese Derby and Prix Niel – has a generally progressive profile and will not lack endurance, having finished second in the two-mile Tenno Sho in May.
