Leading Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe hope Postponed continues to please trainer Roger Varian with the big race at Chantilly just over a week away.

The five-year-old has enjoyed a perfect season to date, winning three Group Ones in succession, including the Coronation Cup and the Juddmonte International.

Varian said: “Postponed is in great form. He worked this morning and worked well.

“We don’t mind everyone asking about him. The day we don’t have a favourite for the Arc is when we will be upset that we are not getting the attention.

“It is a nice position to be in.

“He is in good form and where he needs to be with eight days to go. Fingers crossed that it all goes well between now and next weekend.”
