Frankie: Order Of St George can thrive at Arc de Triomphe trip

I’ve picked up the ride on Order Of St George in this year’s Arc and I’m every bit as thrilled as I was when I rode Camelot in the race four years ago.

I was getting a bit anxious that I might miss out on an Arc ride after Fascinating Rock failed to make the race so I am delighted that Aidan has asked me to ride for him again.

Everyone knows Aidan has had this race in mind for my horse (16/1 with Ladbrokes) for a while and the record of stayers in the race is good.

His best form is probably over further but Marienbard had run in a Gold Cup the year before he went on to win the Arc for me so I know it can be done.

I wouldn’t be too worried about the trip.

Postponed is clearly the biggest threat. It’s difficult to see any flaws in the favourite but my horse is trained by a genius. Now I’ve had the good news confirmed I can relax a bit and start looking forward to a big run.
