John Gosden runs three in Prix de Royallieu

Enbihaar, Lah Ti Dar and Anapurna give a hand at the Qatar Prix de Royallieu at ParisLongchamp to John Gosden.

Saturdays race was increased in space and status – together with the nine declared runners set to undertake three-quarters and a mile in pursuit of Group One glory.
The field is led by Enbihaar, who completed a hat-trick of wins at Group Two level at Doncaster.
Angus Gold, racing manager to owner Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum, said:She is a lovely filly, but she has a couple of others of Johns (Gosden) in addition to everyone else to contend with, such as the Oaks winner (Anapurna).
She has done nothing but improve annually, and everybody loves her. She is a filly that is thoroughly excellent, so hopefully she will run very well.
It would be great to win a Group One with her
Lah Ti Dar came close to breaking her Group One duck when a close-up third behind stablemate Coronet from the Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud on her beginning, since when she has finished a distant third behind Gosdens celebrity mare Permit .
John has been very satisfied with her preparation, which is a race weve had earmarked for her all year, said Simon Marsh, racing and bloodstock manager to Lah Ti Dars owner-breeders Lord and Lady Lloyd-Webber.
I believe shell be quite comfortable in the softer floor and she finished second in the St Leger last year, so theres no reason to believe she will not stay the trip.
You have to honor Johns additional two fillies, who are both high-class. However, Lah Ti Dar deserves to be there, and that I believe shell run a big race.
The Gosden trio is completed with Anapurna – winner of the Investec Oaks at Epsom at the end of May.
She made her first start in the Prix Vermeille of the month as that Classic triumph, but could only finish seventh supporting company Star Catcher – that dominated under Frankie Dettori in front.
Mark Weinfeld, of owners Helena Springfield Ltd, stated:Anapurna is in good form.
She looks to have a great enough draw (stall four) and we have got Frankie (Dettori) on board, so fingers crossed.
Were always optimistic. She was boxed in when she couldnt get out and conducted in the Vermeille, and did not actually have a race.
We will see how she gets on. Shes at the race Champions Day at Ascot (Qipco British Champions Fillies & Mares Stakes) later in the month, however, well get Saturday out of the way before we make any plans.
While Aidan OBrien sends Delphinia and South Sea Pearl from Ireland, roger Varians Pilaster is a British challenger.
Andre Fabres Musis Amica, the Carlos Laffon-Parias-trained Mutamakina along with Markus Klugs German raider Satomi will be the hopefuls.
