Mask revealed in Arc betting - Longchamp update
With the news Nathaniel is to switch agendas from Longchamp to Ascot, John Gosden is reported to be considering supplementing St Leger winner Masked Marvel for the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe, with William Hill inserting him into the betting at 16-1.
Lucy Rhodes, spokeswoman for William Hill, said ‘Having successfully substituted for Nathaniel in the St Leger, Masked Marvel will require another step up if he is to cover for his stablemate for a second time'
