Europe's most prestigious flat race is back, as the eyes of the horse racing world turn to Longchamp in Paris for the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe 2018 – and you can live stream the whole race no matter where you are in the world – and for free!
For the unacquainted, 'the Arc' is a Group 1 race open to thoroughbred horses aged three and over, and this Sunday a whopping £2,528,319 (don't forget that all important last £9) of prize money is up for grabs for the winner. Among the favourites will be the 2017 winner Enable, but the horse's absence through injury for part of this year may give hope to the rest of the field.
If John Gosden's thoroughbred doesn't lead the pack again, expect Yorkshire Oaks winner Sea Of Class to be among the main contenders. Crystal Ocean and Waldgeist will also be widely backed for the Paris showdown in what promises to be a thriller of a race.
Good news for viewers in the UK – the Arc will be shown live on free-to-air ITV. However, if you live outside the UK, keep reading as we’ll show you how to stream the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe from wherever you are in the world.
