Planteur: Back in action at Lingfield
Marco Botti's Planteur will start out on the route back to Meydan for another crack at the Dubai World Cup in Saturday's Blue Square Bet Winter Derby Trial at Lingfield.
Last seen finishing seventh behind Frankel in the Juddmonte International at York, the six-year-old was third to Monterosso in the World Cup last March.
He will face eight rivals, including stablemate Marcret, winner of the Huxley Stakes in May.
Philip McBride's Harry Buckle has been in great form this winter and appears one of the biggest threats, along with the William Haggas-trained Arsaadi and Mark Rimmer's Emerald Wilderness.
