Favourite Enable is set to head the field for Sunday's Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe at Chantilly.

The filly, from stall two, could give jockey Frankie Dettori a record fifth win in Europe's richest horse race.

Enable, trained by John Gosden, was supplemented on Wednesday morning at a cost of 120,000 euros (£105,000) after not being entered at the first stage.

A total of 18 runners have been declared, with five representing Irish trainer Aidan O'Brien.

O'Brien withdrew last year's runner-up Highland Reel and Derby second Cliffs Of Moher on Thursday.

Jockey Ryan Moore has chosen to ride Winter for O'Brien ahead of Order Of St George, who will be partnered by the trainer's son Donnacha.

Wayne Lordan rides Capri, Seamie Heffernan will be on Idaho while Seventh Heaven, the mount of Pat Smullen, completes the O'Brien contingent.

Other contenders include Sir Michael Stoute's Ulysses, second to Enable in the King George but winner of the Eclipse and Juddmonte International either side of that.

The French challenge is led by Brametot, winner of the French Guineas and Derby, and Zarak.

The race has prize money of 5m euros, with 2.85m euros (£2.5m) going to the winner. It is taking place at Chantilly while Longchamp racecourse undergoes a redevelopment.
