St Leger winner Kew Gardens has been given the go-ahead to take on Enable in the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe at ParisLongchamp.
The Aidan O’Brien-trained colt has had a good season with his Classic triumph at Doncaster adding to his victory in the Queen’s Vase at Royal Ascot and the Grand Prix de Paris over the Arc course and distance.
“The plan is that we are going towards the Arc with him,” O’Brien said.
“Hunting Horn is going to be left in as well and Capri as well. We have to decide whether Magical will be left in in the morning.
“She’s one we’re not sure about. If she isn’t left in, she’ll go to the Opera instead and Magic Wand might go for the fillies’ race (Opera) as well, but Forever Together won’t run again this year.”
The John Gosden-trained Enable is the even-money favourite to defend the Arc on Saturday with Kew Gardens generally available at 12-1.
