Postponed will face a maximum of 15 rivals in the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe at Chantilly on Sunday.

The five-year-old is unbeaten in four starts since joining Roger Varian, enjoying Group One victories in the Dubai Sheema Classic, the Coronation Cup and the Juddmonte International.

No horses were added to the field at Thursday’s supplementary stage, but Zarak was withdrawn to leave a field of 16.

There is still a chance that number could be reduced at the final withdrawal stage on Friday.

Aidan O’Brien has three contenders in Found, Highland Reel and Order Of St George, while dual Derby winner Harzand has stood his ground for Dermot Weld.

The only other remaining challenger from Britain or Ireland is the Kevin Ryan-trained The Grey Gatsby.

Other leading hopes include Japanese star Makahiki, New Bay and Left Hand.
