The Kimpton trainer revealed he had to give the Investec Oaks winner a racecourse gallop at Kempton in preparation because his grass gallops at home were too dry.
"She worked at Kempton on Friday because the grass gallop at home is very dry and therefore very quick, so we haven't been able to get on the grass," Beckett told At The Races.
"She's in good nick and I'm hoping we'll be able to run. I'll see how we are early in the week and we'll plan away from there. I'd like to run her."
Talent, who has not raced since finishing last of seven in the Irish Oaks at the Curragh in July, would bid to become the first Epsom Oaks winner to beat the colts in the St Leger since User Friendly in 1992.
