Lah Ti Dar enbihaar and Anapurna Provide John Gosden a Strong hand in the Qatar Prix de Royallieu at ParisLongchamp.
Saturdays race was increased for this years renewal in standing and distance – together with the nine declared runners place to handle a mile and also three-quarters in hunt of Group One glory.
The area is headed by Enbihaar, who completed a hat-trick of wins at Group Two level using a success at the Park Hill Stakes at Doncaster last month.
Angus Gold, racing manager to owner Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum, said:She is a beautiful filly, but shes got a couple of other people of Johns (Gosden) as well as everybody else to compete with, including the Oaks winner (Anapurna).
She has done nothing but enhance all year, and everyone loves her. Shes a good filly, so hopefully shell run very well.
It would be nice to win a Group One with her.
Lah Ti Dar came near breaking her Group One Minute if a behind stablemate Coronet in the Grand Prix on her start, because when she has finished a distant third behind the superstar mare Permit of Gosden from the Yorkshire Oaks.
John has been really pleased with her preparation, and this is a race we have had earmarked for her year, explained Simon Marsh, racing and bloodstock manager to Lah Ti Dars owner-breeders Lord and Lady Lloyd-Webber.
I think shell be very comfortable from the softer floor and that she finished second in the St Leger this past year, so there is not any reason to think she will not remain the trip.
You have to honor Johns other two fillies, who are equally high-class. But Lah Ti Dar deserves to be there, and I think she will run a big race.
The Gosden trio is performed with Anapurna – winner of this Investec Oaks at Epsom.
She left her first start in last month Prix Vermeille because that traditional victory, but would only finish seventh supporting secure companion Star Catcher – that dominated under Frankie Dettori from the front.
Mark Weinfeld, of owners Helena Springfield Ltd, stated:Anapurna is in great shape.
She seems to have a great enough attraction (stall four) and weve got Frankie (Dettori) on board, so fingers crossed.
Were always hopeful. She had been boxed in if she couldnt escape and conducted in the Vermeille, and did not actually have a race.
We will see how she has on. She is in the race on Champions Day at Ascot (Qipco British Champions Fillies & Mares Stakes) later in the month, but well get Saturday from the way before we make any plans.
Although Aidan OBrien sends Delphinia and South Sea Pearl from Ireland, roger Varians Pilaster is a fourth British challenger.
The German raider Satomi of Markus Klug along with andre Fabres Musis Amica, the Carlos Laffon-Parias-trained Mutamakina are the other hopefuls.
