Enbihaar, Lah Ti Dar and Anapurna give John Gosden a hand in the Qatar Prix de Royallieu at ParisLongchamp.
Saturdays race was increased for the renewal of this year in standing and distance – together with the nine announced runners place to undertake three-quarters and a mile in search of Group One glory.
Enbihaar, who completed a level at Doncaster heads the field.
Angus Gold, racing manager to owner Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum, said:Shes a lovely filly, but she has a few other people of Johns (Gosden) as well as everyone else to contend with, including the Oaks winner (Anapurna).
Shes done nothing but enhance annually, and everyone loves her. Shes a filly that is great, so hopefully she will run well.
It would be great to win a Group One with her
Lah Ti Dar came near breaking up her Group One duck when a behind stablemate Coronet from the Grand Prix on her penultimate start, since when shes finished a distant third behind the superstar mare Permit of Gosden .
John has been really satisfied with her preparation, which is a race weve had allowed for her all year, explained Simon Marsh, racing and bloodstock director to Lah Ti Dars owner-breeders Lord and Lady Lloyd-Webber.
I think she will be very comfortable in the softer ground and she finished second in the St Leger last year, therefore theres no reason to believe she will not stay the excursion.
You have to respect Johns additional two fillies, who are both high-class. However, Lah Ti Dar deserves to be there, and I think she will run a big race.
The Gosden trio is completed with Anapurna – winner of this Investec Oaks at Epsom.
She left her first start in the month Prix Vermeille because that Classic victory, but could only finish seventh behind company Star Catcher – who dominated under Frankie Dettori in front.
Mark Weinfeld, of owners Helena Springfield Ltd, stated:Anapurna is in good form.
She seems to have a nice enough draw (stall four) and we have got Frankie (Dettori) on board, so fingers crossed.
We are always hopeful. She was boxed in when she did not actually have a race and couldnt escape, and conducted at the Vermeille.
We will see how she has on. She is in the race Champions Day at Ascot (Qipco British Champions Fillies & Mares Stakes) later in the month, however we will get Saturday out of the way before we make some plans.
While Aidan OBrien sends Delphinia and South Sea Pearl in Ireland, roger Varians Pilaster is a fourth largest challenger.
Andre Fabres Musis Amica, the Carlos Laffon-Parias-trained Mutamakina along with the German raider Satomi of Markus Klug are another hopefuls.
