Three-times Arc winning trainer thinks punters should focus on André Fabre in Sunday’s big race
With a family history steeped in the magic of the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe, Criquette Head-Maarek is better placed than most to pass judgement on this year’s renewal at Longchamp.
Head-Maarek’s father, Alec, won the great race four times, as did brother Freddy in the saddle, grandfather William struck twice and she herself managed three victories – once with Three Troikas in 1979 and then back-to-back with the magnificent Treve in 2013 and 2014. Many of the family’s successes came with fillies, and with Enable and Sea Of Class dominating the betting, the odds suggest the female division will hold sway once more this weekend.
