The world’s greatest horserace – aka "the greatest two minutes in sport" – is 100 years old! The Grand National and the Kentucky Derby are a big deal, but l'Arc is richer, with an extraordinary purse of £4.3 million up for grabs in 2021.

The runners and riders are limbering up and there's plenty of money being thrown at Love, ridden by six-time Arc de Triomphe winner jockey Frankie Dettori. He has bagged one of the best stalls too – could he be about to complete a 'magnificent seven'?

Love isn't the favourite, though. According to the sportsbooks, Tarnawa, ridden by Christophe Soumillon, and Adayar, ridden by William Buick are neck-and-neck to win the 2021 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe – and secure the mind-boggling £2,444,760.24 first prize. Hurricane Lane and Snowfall are also attracting plenty of bets, while Bubble Gift and Mojo Star remain the rank outsiders.

With a capacity crowd assembling at Paris Longchamp for the 1m 4f race, we're under starters orders and set for a blockbuster end to the Flat racing season! The race starts at 10.05am ET / 3.05pm BST / 00.05 AEST today, so make sure you know how to watch a Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe free live stream from anywhere.

Good news for UK fans. The 2021 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe will be broadcast live on ITV Racing, and streamed live and free on ITV Hub.  The free-to-air stream is restricted to viewers within the UK, but that doesn't mean you have to miss out.

How to watch the 2021 Arc de Triomphe abroad using a VPN

Even if you have subscribed to the relevant 2021 Arc de Triomphe rights holders, you won't be able to use them when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, such that the servers and services you’re accessing aren’t aware of what you’re doing. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.

There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN which offers a 100 per cent risk-free money back guarantee. If you're not happy with the service any time within the first 30-days, then you can cancel with no penalties at all.


Using a VPN is incredibly simple.

1. Install the VPN of your choice. ExpressVPN is the one we recommend.

2. Open up the VPN app and choose the location of the service you wish to access. For the England vs India, you may wish to choose 'UK' for ITV Hub.

3. Then head over to ITV Hub on your browser or device and enjoy the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe free live stream.
