Miss France could be stepped up in trip
Andre Fabre's 1000 Guineas winner Miss France will be stepped up in trip for the Prix de Diane next time out, as long as the ground is not too soft.
While the master trainer has no doubts at all about his filly staying the 10 furlongs in Chantilly, he will switch her sights to the Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot if the going is not deemed suitable.
The daughter of Dansili shrugged off a lacklustre reappearance as a three-year-old in the Prix Imprudence to hold off Lightning Thunder by a neck in the Newmarket Classic to give Fabre his first win in the race.
"For the moment, we are thinking that Miss France will run in the Prix de Diane next," Fabre told Press Association Sport.
"We will just have to keep an eye on the weather. I am confident that she will stay 10 furlongs, no problems.
"The ground is the worry with her, not the trip. If it was soft for the Diane we could go for the Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot."
