Trainer Kevin Ryan says East is in great shape heading into the Poule d'Essai des Pouliches at Longchamp on Sunday.
East produced a solid effort when winning on debut at Hamilton Park in September 2018, beating Constant by half-a-length, before following that up with victory at Saint-Cloud the next month.
The three-year-old was second at Churchill Downs in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf last time out and Ryan is feeling very confident about the chances of success in Paris on Sunday.
"She is in great form and everything has gone to plan. There has been a lot of rain in Paris, but we know she handles soft ground," he was quoted as saying by Sky Sports. "She was left in at Newmarket to keep our options open, but France was always the number one.
"When you make a plan, you stick to it, so that is what we decided in the end. She has grown and has got stronger. She is just a pleasure to train and we have had a lovely run into the race with her, so I'm very happy with her."
