Connections say Coronation Stakes winner Alpine Star will head to Deauville for the Prix Jacques Le Marois on August 10.
The three-year-old earned an impressive four-and-a-quarter-length victory when returning to action following a 302-day break at Ascot in June.
She proved far too strong for Sharing, taking the top prize in the Coronation Stakes, but had to settle for second last time out in the Prix de Diane Longines at Chantilly.
Alpine Star looks set to drop down in trip to a mile for this month's Deauville showpiece if the conditions remain favourable.
"Alpine Star has an entry in the Jacques Le Marois on the 16th," said Alan Cooper, racing manager to the owners.
"If all goes according to plan she could go to Deauville, but we just need to keep an eye on the ground. There's very hot weather forecast, but then there could be thunderstorms, so we'll watch out for that.
"Her form appears very strong, with Fancy Blue winning again at Goodwood. The three-year-old fillies appear to be very strong this year which is exciting, it's good for racing."
