After Friday morning's final declaration stage, 10 horses are entered for the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe Lucien Barriere (Fr-I) Sunday at Longchamp. In the 1 1/2-mile race, Montjeu will seek to defend his 1999 Arc victory while facing 3-year-old Sinndar. The two Budweiser Irish Derby (Ire-I) winners head the field for the French classic.
