Eight top-level Group One winners are among 14 hopefuls in Sunday’s 100th running of Europe’s richest race, the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe.
Adayar will bid to become only the third horse to complete the Derby, King George, Arc treble at ParisLongchamp.
Godolphin trainer Charlie Appleby also saddles St Leger winner Hurricane Lane.
Breeders’ Cup Turf victor Tarnawa and Oaks winner Snowfall head a formidable Irish challenge, but Love has been ruled out with a high temperature.
Chrono Genesis and Deep Bond will seek Japan’s first victory in the mile-and-a-half race, which boasts Sea The Stars, Treve and Enable among recent winners.

‘A great race’ in store
Appleby is seeking his first Arc as Adayar looks to repeat a treble only completed previously by Mill Reef in 1971 and Lammtarra in 1995.
“There’s no horse unbeaten going into that Arc, so we’re all singing off the same hymn sheet, and it’s going to be a great race,” he said.
The going is expected to be very soft and trainer Roger Varian withdrew the 20-1 chance Teona on Thursday because of the wet conditions.
Snowfall, a record 16-length winner of the Oaks at Epsom in June under Frankie Dettori, will be ridden this time by Ryan Moore.
Dettori had been lined up to partner Love, but is set to miss out on his 33rd ride in the Arc.
