The improving three-year-old ran a creditable fourth in the Prix Vermeille Arc trial in France on Sunday.

This was after she had completed a four-timer where the daughter of Bated Breath brought up victories in a Redcar maiden, a Windsor handicap, a Listed heat at Newmarket and a Group 3 in France.

Lanigan was pleased with her run at ParisLongchamp on Sunday, after Stephane Pasquier’s mount eventually faded into fourth place having forced much of the pace.

The Newmarket handler told Attheraces: “They went very hard and she ran her heart out.

“In hindsight, we probably should have ridden her a little bit more conservatively. He (Pasquier) gave her a very good ride, but they went quick and I think she had a hard race.

“We’ll probably just sit until Champions Day (October 20) and if the ground is good or better, we’ll aim for that.”

Lanigan’s improving three-year-old could clash with the likes of St Leger second Lah Ti Dar, the experienced Bateel and Yorkshire Oaks winner Sea Of Class in the Group 1 at Ascot.

John Gosden’s Lah Ti Dar is the current 2-1 favourite, with the French-trained Bateel in at 6-1.
