The excitement is certainly building ahead of the 2012 Prix de l’Arc, set to get underway on Sunday with a field packed with potential winners.

In 2011, it was the year for Danedream. Becoming only the second German horse ever to win this race, it was yet another great Prix de l’Arc memory. Unfortunately though, due to an infection, Danedream will not be taking part this year.
So, who are the main contenders?
The favourite is a household name when it comes to horses – Camelot. The Aidan O’Brien trained horse will be ridden by the popular Frankie Dettori and is without doubt the star attraction on Sunday.
There is a joint favourite too though with Japan’s Orfevre many punter’s pick for success in Paris this weekend. Winner of the Japanese Triple Crown, this tremendous horse showed encouraging form in a Prix Foy victory in the lead up to this one.
It may well come down to a shoot-out between Camelot and Orfevre – both available at 3/1 for the win – but it is worth looking at those next in line to make an impact.
Saonois, Shareta and Sea Moon are all at the 9/1 mark, while at 10/1 you have the likes of Masterstroke, St Nicholas Abbey and Great Heavens.
It is definitely a strong field and this should be yet another fantastic day in the history of this race, with the main entertainment value coming thanks to the prospect of Camelot and Orfevre doing battle for the win.
