USER FRIENDLY, who will lead a team of seven challengers from Britain for Sunday's Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe, went smoothly in her final exercise for the race yesterday morning.

After the unbeaten filly worked over one mile with three stable-mates, her trainer, Clive Brittain, said: 'My only worry with her has been that she gets there spot-on, and she will be now.'

There were 21 left in at yesterday's forfeit stage, with Dr Devious, Mashaallah, Rainbow Corner, Saddlers' Hall, Sapience and Seattle Rhyme all set to join User Friendly. St Jovite is the sole representative from Ireland, but at the supplementary stage tomorrow, Market Booster is expected to join the line-up along with the Criquette Head-trained Petit Loup.

ARC DECLARATIONS: Mashaallah, Dear Doctor, Subotica, Sapience, Vert Amande, Saddlers' Hall, Arcangues, Art Bleu, Saganeca, Magic Night, Rainbow Corner, Dr Devious, Polytain, St Jovite, Seattle Rhyme, Seattle Savour, Jolypha, Soiree Mondaine, User Friendly, Trishyde, Verveine.
