Bringing Order to Arc


London – Aidan O’Brien says it is “more likely” Order Of St George will run in the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe rather than the Emirates Melbourne Cup.

The grand five-year-old stayer won the Irish St Leger for a second time at The Curragh on Sunday and is now in the frame to contest the big race at Chantilly, in which he finished third last year, on 1 October.

Order Of St George would have to carry top weight in the Melbourne Cup on 7 November and is 20-1 with Sky Bet, but the Ballydoyle handler at this stage has a preference for the Arc.

O’Brien told the Herald Sun: “We haven’t decided yet between the Arc and the Melbourne Cup for Order Of St George but it’s probably more likely that he will go for the Arc.” – Press Association
