The undefeated 'TDN Rising Star' Raclette (GB) (Frankel {GB}) will head for the Oct. 3 Prix Marcel Boussac at ParisLongchamp next. A winner when unveiled at Deauville on Aug. 8, the bay Juddmonte colourbearer added a conditions races at Chantilly on Sept. 17.

“She was very impressive last time out and she is probably one of the best fillies I have ever trained–she's got everything,” said trainer Andre Fabre.

“She has acceleration, a wonderful temperament, so far she is doing everything right. We'll go for the Boussac with her next.

“It is quite a big step going from a conditions race to a Group 1, but she was way better than her opponents last time. I can't see why quicker ground would be an issue as she has a beautiful action.

“She has already won over a mile so the dream would be the Prix de Diane and the Arc, but there's also a lot of speed on the dam's side so hopefully she'd go for the Guineas first.”

Fabre also provided an update on the benched Group 1 winner Mare Australis (Ire) (Australia {GB}), who was recovering from an injury.

Added Fabre of the 2021 G1 Prix Ganay hero, “I had some good news about Mare Australis last week from his owner. He'll be back in training this winter.”
