Classic winner Magical Lagoon (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}), who won the G1 Irish Oaks last year, will be aimed toward the G1 Queen Elizabeth S. Down Under, Yulong CEO Sam Fairgray confirmed to TDN AusNZ on Wednesday morning.

An impressive winner of the G2 Ribblesdale S. at Royal Ascot for former trainer Jessica Harrington, the Northern Hemisphere 4-year-old is now berthed with Australian Champion Trainer Chris Waller.

“She's with Chris Waller and he's very happy with her, she's settled in well,” Fairgray said. “He'll take her towards a trial at the end of next month and we'll just see how she progresses from there. Ideally, all going well, the Queen Elizabeth would be a good target for her.”

Out of the Lagunas (GB) mare Night Lagoon (Ger), the 305,000gns Tattersalls October Book 1 yearling purchase is also a half-sister to four-time Group 1 winner and sire Novellist (Ire) (Monsun {Ger}). Fifth in York's G1 Yorkshire Oaks in August, the bay was unplaced in the G1 Queen Elizabeth II Cup at Hanshin in November.
