The Arc traditionally takes place on the first Sunday in October, with this year's race set to be staged on 1st October at 3.00 BST.

Where is the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe held?

The race takes place at Paris-Longchamp racecourse on the outskirts of the French capital. The track is located on the Route des Tribunes at the Bois de Boulogne and it boasts multiple tracks, ranging in length from five-furlongs to two-miles.

Longchamp, recently redeveloped, has capacity for 50,000 spectators and it is home to more than half of the Group 1 races run in France annually.

Like with all racing, the Arc is available on bet365's Sports Live Streaming platform.

In Britain, there is currently terrestrial coverage from ITV Racing, while Sky Sports Racing will also offer full live coverage of every race across the two-day Arc meeting at Longchamp.

Who is the most successful Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe trainer?

Legendary French trainer Andre Fabre has won the Arc an unmatched eight times. His wins came with Trempolino (1987), Subotica (1992), Carnegie (1994), Peintre Celebre (1997), Sagamix (1998), Hurricane Run (2005), Rail Link (2006) and Waldgeist (2019).

John Gosden is the modern-day standard setter for UK trainers with three wins via Golden Horn (2015) and Enable (2017, 2018).

Who is the most successful Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe jockey?

Ever the man for the big occasion, no jockey has ridden more Arc winners than Frankie Dettori's current tally of six. The iconic Italian has triumphed with Lammtarra (1995), Sakhee (2001), Marienbard (2002), Golden Horn (2015) and Enable (2017, 2018).

Dettori is set to retire at the end of 2023 and he may be on board 8/1 Emily Upjohn for John & Thady Gosden in what would be his final ride in the Arc – with connections pin-pointing this race in the wake of her Coronation Cup win at Epsom in early June

Who are the most successful Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe jockey horses?

There have been eight repeat winners of the Arc but, as yet, no horse has ever managed to win a third time. 

Ksar (1921, 1922) won the first two runnings, while superstar filly Enable (2017, 2018) is one of only two repeat winners this century, joining the outstanding French filly Treve, who scored for Criquette Head in 2013 and 2014. 

Enable and Dettori finished second to Waldgeist in 2019, having led inside the final furlong on ground that was heavier than desired, while in 2020 she finished an honourable sixth behind Sottsass in what proved to be the final start of her illustrious career.

Who are the fancied horses in the 2022 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe?

The ante-post market has been headed by 5/1 Auguste Rodin since he won the Epsom Derby for Aidan O'Brien. His stablemate Luxembourg started his 4YO season off in fine fettle and rates a 14/1 chance for what would be his trainer's third Arc win after Dylan Thomas in 2007 and Found in 2016. 

The latter led home a remarkable one-two-three for the Irish trainer as Highland Reel and Order Of St George followed her in. 

The Owen Burrowes-trained Hukum (14/1) would become the oldest Arc winner in more than 90 years if he can land the spoils, while Epsom Oaks winner Soul Sister is 16/1 to follow in the footsteps of Enable – winner of that fillies' Classic in 2017 en route to landing her first Arc in the autumn.
