Coventry Stakes winner Nando Parrado has been confirmed to run in the Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere at ParisLongchamp on Sunday.
The Clive Cox-trained two-year-old has enjoyed a stellar season, following up his victory at Royal Ascot in June with a second-place finish in last month's Prix Morny at Deauville.
A run in this weekend's Dewhurst Stakes had been under consideration for Nando Parrado, but Cox has now confirmed that they will instead be heading to Paris, with the soft conditions predicted in the French capital set to suit his star colt.
"With the (wet) forecast, he's actually going to travel to France on Sunday for the Lagardere," Cox told Sky Sports Racing.
"He did a really good job winning the Coventry, and at that stage we were intent on looking further with him, and he then finished second in the Morny.
"The prospect of easy ground has lured us that way - and I'm very much looking forward to it, because he's in excellent form."
Cox will be hoping to taste success with Nando Parrado on Sunday as he looks to continue what has been a successful season for the trainer with juveniles, as not only did he win the Coventry Stakes with his Lagardere hopeful, but he also triumphed in the Middle Park and Richmond with Supremacy as well as the Rockfel with Isabella Giles.
