Alpinista is 12-1 for the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe at Longchamp after length-and-a-quarter victory in the Group One Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud extends winning streak to six races

  • Victory was all the more impressive as the Prescott stable has struggled for form
  • Luke Morris’s mount won three Group One races in Germany last season
  • Alpinista could also go for the King George at Ascot later this month
  • Morris believes ‘all roads will lead to the Arc’ for the five-year-old mare

Alpinista is 12-1 for the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe at Longchamp in October after a successful seasonal comeback in the Group One Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud.

The length-and-a-quarter victory extended the winning sequence to six races for the Sir Mark Prescott-trained five-year-old mare.

Luke Morris’s mount won three Group One races in Germany last season which included a defeat of 2021 Arc winner Torquator Tasso in the Grosser Preis von Berlin.

Alpinista’s win was all the more commendable given the Prescott stable has struggled for form, with less than a dozen runners and no winners since mid-May.

Morris said: ‘I feel she’s only just starting to come to hand now. I think all roads will lead to the Arc.’

Alpinista’s win followed victory in Hamburg on Saturday of Torquator Tasso. He could go for the King George at Ascot on July 23.

Frankie Dettori was beaten by a head in third on So Moonstruck in Sunday’s German Derby. The prize went to Peter Schiergen-trained Sammarco.
