Classic Cliche remains Frankie Dettori's possible Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe mount after yesterday's first forfeit stage in which the Ascot Gold Cup winner remained one of 29 left in Sunday's big race. Godolphin's racing manager, Simon Crisford, said: "Classic Cliche cantered this morning and was bright. He is scheduled to do some more work before we make up our minds."

Meanwhile, Dettori confirmed that he would switch to the John Gosden- trained Tamure, currently languishing at around 33-1, if Classic Cliche becomes an absentee. Gosden said of Tamure: "He hasn't run all year because of fast ground. He was being aimed for the Geoffrey Freer Stakes but was pulled out because of a corn. "It's a tough race to come back into but we'll give it a go."
