Multiple Group 3 winner Lastotchka (Fr) (Myboycharlie {Ire}) has been purchased by Australian Bloodstock and is under consideration for the G1 Melbourne Cup in November.

The 4-year-old filly most recently won the G3 Prix Gladiateur at ParisLongchamp earlier this month. She was raced by Ecurie Noel Forgeard, Pierre Bonnier, Earl Touchstone, Charles-Henri Bonnier and Philippe Stein prior to her acquisition. The daughter of Muthla (Fr) (Muhtathir {GB}) won the G3 Prix Belle de Nuit earlier in her career.

“We completed the deal last night,” Jamie Lovett of Australian Bloodstock told Racing.com on Wednesday.

“There's a few things to play out so we are leaving her in in Chantilly for more scans at the moment. She's passed the RV (Racing Victoria) trot-up and they've seen the X-rays so far.”

Of the former Jean-Marie Beguigne trainee's appeal, Lovett added, “We really liked the form. The thing that ticked the last box was that she's obviously won at a mile and a half but interestingly enough her two Group 3 wins were at 2800 metres and 3100 metres.

“She's bought for that race and she's come in with 51kgs. She's also good residual value as a multiple Group 3 winner with a lovely pedigree.”

Australian Bloodstock won the 2022 Melbourne Cup with Gold Trip (Fr) (Outstrip {GB}), and he is currently top weight for the two-mile prize when the weights were released on Tuesday.
