The duel-Classic winner, who also took the 1,000 Guineas at Newmarket for Aidan O’Brien, remains with an entry in the Coronation Cup with every possibility that she will return to the scene of her greatest triumph next month.

Ballydoyle’s star filly won on all three appearances as a three-year-old and has not been seen since she took the Yorkshire Oaks in August.

The daughter of Galileo excelled on her step up to the one-and-a-half-mile trip at the Downs and York last summer but will drop back to one-mile and two-furlongs in County Kildare should she feature for her handler.

O’Brien remains with a flurry of representatives in line for the Group 1 event on Sunday, including Japan, Mogul and last year’s Derby winner, Serpentine.
