HARZAND remains an intended runner in the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe at Chantilly next month, his trainer Dermot Weld confirmed on Wednesday.

The dual Derby winner could finish only eighth in last Saturday’s Irish Champion Stakes, with Weld later revealing Harzand had been struck into during the race after he was found to be lame behind afterwards.

On Sunday Weld said Harzand’s Arc bid would depend on the speed of his recovery, and the trainer added on Wednesday that the Aga Khan-owned colt is “continuing to progress”.

Harzand’s price for the Arc ranges in ante-post markets from as big as 12-1 with the likes of Ladbrokes and Coral to as short as 8-1 with William Hill and Betfair.
