Camelot could break Japanese hearts and see off the challenge of their favourite Orfevre in Europe's most prestigious race the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe at Longchamp on Sunday.
Orfevre, ridden by French jockey Christophe Soumillon, runs at the horse racing centre in Lamorlaye, north of Paris, on October 3. Orfevre faces a tough task if he is to deliver Japan their first win in Europe's most prestigious race the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe after he was drawn on the wide outside for Sunday's showpiece event at Longchamp.
Orfevre -- Japan's 2011 horse of the year -- is the 13th challenger sent by the Japanese in the past 33 years to try and conquer a race they compare to the quest for the Holy Grail.
