Adayar, best rating of Arc contenders

Hero of the Epsom Derby and the King Georges, then fourth in the Arc last season, Adayar took advantage of a favorable entry to win easily on his return to Doncaster. The Godolphin representative tops the rankings with a rating of 127. Undefeated in three outings this season and successive winner of the Tenno Sho and Takarazuka Kinen at the end of the first half, the Japanese title holder ranks second with a rating of 124.

The line of the Irish Champion Stakes

Among the last preparatory events for the Arc, which promises to be exciting despite the absence of crack Baaeed, the Irish Champion Stakes hold particular attention. On this occasion, the Irish Luxemburg (122) won at the expense of the French Onesto (121), hero of the Paris Grand Prix, and Vadeni (123), net winner of the Jockey Club. Defending champion and overtaken by a hard fight in the recent Grand Prix of Baden-Baden, Torquator Tasso then points with a rating of 120, as Mountaineerremaining on the trifle of seven victories (including five at the highest level), and Westover, brilliant winner of the Irish Derby before disappointing in the King George. Noticed in the Jockey Club and winner of the Prix Guillaume d’Ornano in Deauville, Al-Hakeem comes in slightly behind with a rating of 115.
