Postponed: Will break from stall seven in the Arc.

Postponed will break from stall seven as he bids to crown his fantastic season with victory in the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe at Chantilly on Sunday.

The Dubawi entire is unbeaten in four starts for Roger Varian this year, enjoying Group One triumphs in the Dubai Sheema Classic, the Coronation Cup and the Juddmonte International.

He faces 15 rivals in Europe's premier middle-distance event on Sunday as he lines up under regular rider Andrea Atzeni.

Aidan O'Brien's trio of runners appear to have fared less well in the draw.

Top-class filly Found will start in stall 12 under Ryan Moore, King George winner Highland Reel is next door in stall 11 for Seamie Heffernan and Gold Cup hero Order Of St George, the mount of Frankie Dettori, is widest of all in stall 16.

Dermot Weld's dual Derby winner Harzand looks well positioned in stall six, with the only other British or Irish representative, the Kevin Ryan-trained The Grey Gatsby, in stall two.

Other leading contenders include Japanese star Makahiki (14), last year's third New Bay (eight), Silverwave (four) and Left Hand (15).
