The Arc Trial, currently known for sponsorship purposes as the Dubai Duty Free Legacy Cup, is a Group 3 flat horse race in Great Britain open to horses aged three years or older. It is run at Newbury over a distance of 1 mile, 3 furlongs and 5 yards (2,217 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in September.

The event was established in 1997, and the inaugural running was won by Posidonas. It initially held Listed status, and was promoted to Group 3 level in 2004.

Despite its title, the Arc Trial rarely serves as a trial for the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe.
