Willie McCreery's Fiesolana will head back to France for her next start in the Prix Maurice de Gheest at Deauville.
A Group Two winner at Newmarket for McCreery, she was bought by Flaxman Stables for £960,000 but stayed in the same yard.
Not disgraced over a mile recently, she will drop back in trip for the Group One.
"Fiesolana will run in the Prix Maurice de Gheest on August 16 over six and a half furlongs at Deauville," McCreery told At The Races.
"I just think she struggles to see out the mile in Group One company. All her best wins last season were over seven so we'll try her over six and a half.
"Hopefully there'll be cut in the ground, they've had a wet summer in France and I hope it continues."
