Anapurna, Lah Ti Dar and enbihaar give a Powerful hand in the Qatar Prix de Royallieu in ParisLongchamp to John Gosden.
Saturdays race was increased for this seasons renewal in status and distance – with the nine announced runners set to tackle a mile and also three-quarters in quest of Group One glory.
The area is led by Enbihaar, who completed a hat-trick of wins at Group Two degree with a narrow victory at the Park Hill Stakes at Doncaster last month.
Angus Gold, racing manager to owner Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum, said:Shes a lovely filly, but shes got a couple of others of Johns (Gosden) in addition to everybody else to contend with, such as the Oaks winner (Anapurna).
She has done nothing but enhance annually, and everyone loves her. Shes a filly that is thoroughly good, so she will run very well.
It would be great to win a Group One together with her.
Lah Ti Dar came near breaking her Group One Minute when a behind stablemate Coronet from the Grand Prix on her beginning, since when she has finished a distant third behind Gosdens superstar mare Enable in the Yorkshire Oaks.
John has been very pleased with her prep, which is a race we have had allowed for her year, said Simon Marsh, racing and bloodstock manager to Lah Ti Dars owner-breeders Lord and Lady Lloyd-Webber.
I believe she will be very comfortable in the softer ground and she finished second at the St Leger this past year, therefore theres no reason to believe she will not stay the excursion.
You have to respect Johns other two fillies, that are both high-class. But Lah Ti Dar deserves to be there, and that I think shell run a big race.
The Gosden trio is performed with Anapurna – winner of the Investec Oaks at the end of May at Epsom.
She made her first start in last months Prix Vermeille as that traditional victory, but could only finish seventh behind company Star Catcher – that dominated under Frankie Dettori.
Mark Weinfeld, of owners Helena Springfield Ltd, stated:Anapurna is in good form.
She seems to have a great enough attraction (stall four) and weve got Frankie (Dettori) on board, so fingers crossed.
Were always optimistic. She had been boxed in when she didnt actually have a race and could not get out, and ran in the Vermeille.
Well see how she has on. She is in the race on Champions Day in Ascot (Qipco British Champions Fillies & Mares Stakes) later in the month, but well get Saturday from the way before we make some plans.
