The world’s greatest horserace – aka "the greatest two minutes in sport" – is 101 years old this year. The Grand National and the Kentucky Derby are a big deal, but l'Arc is richer, with an extraordinary purse of £4.2 million up for grabs in 2022.

The runners and riders are limbering up and there's plenty of money being thrown at last year's 80-1 winner, Torquator Tasso, ridden by six-time Arc de Triomphe winner jockey Frankie Dettori. Can he overcome a nightmare outside stall draw to make it another 'magnificent seven'? 

Torquator isn't the favourite, though. According to the sportsbooks, Luxembourg, sitting pretty in stall 8 is odds-on for the 2022 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe. Alpinista (5-1), who took the Yorkshire Oaks last month, and Westover (10-1) are also fancied for the win. They start in stalls 6 and 7.

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 free Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe live stream from where you are.

Even if you have subscribed to the relevant 2022 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.

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.
