AIDAN O'BRIEN confirmed to the Racing Post on Wednesday that all is well with Fame And Glory, and that his no-show for Sunday's Prix Foy at Longchamp was simply a result of a "change of plan".

Having missed the Tattersalls Millions Irish Champion Stakes at Leopardstown last weekend, this weekend's Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe trial represented another warm-up opportunity for the big race on October 3.

However, Fame And Glory was not amongthe forfeits for the Foy, prompting Coral, Blue Square and 888sport to make Behkabad favourite forthe Arc.

Nearly all firms eased Fame And Glory, but Ladbrokes kept him at 3-1 and Behkabad at 6-1.

O'Brien said: "There has beena slight change of plan for Fame And Glory. We have decided he will go straight for the Arc and the horse is well."

Coral made Behkabad 9-2 favourite (from 11-2), while Victor Chandler went the same price (from 6). William Hilland Paddy Power quote 5-1 (from 6).

The Jean-Claude Rouget-trained Behkabad was not the only market mover for the Arc on Wednesday, as Planteur was cut to 8-1 (from 10) by VC and Paddy Power, and Ladbrokes St Leger favourite Rewilding was cut to 16-1 (from 20) by Hills and to just 12-1 (from 16) by VC.
