Headline names among Arc possibles

A field of 14 remain in the Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe after five horses were taken out at the latest acceptance stage.

Aidan O'Brien has removed Regent Street and Wonder Of Wonders, but the Ballydoyle trainer still has four in Sunday's Longchamp feature. They are headed by So You Think, with St Nicholas Abbey, Seville and Treasure Beach his other entries.

As expected, Casamento has been scratched by Godolphin while last year's St Leger winner Arctic Cosmos and David Wachman's Giant Step are the others to come out.

The remaining big names, last year's winner Workforce, ante-post favourite Sarafina and Ed Dunlop's Snow Fairy, have stood their ground.

Thursday sees the supplementary stage at which Danedream, Nathaniel and Meandre are possible additions to the line-up.
