The four-year-old has also toasted Group 1 glory at Meydan and Chantilly, and could be set for another appearance in France later this campaign in the capital.

Speaking to RTE, Newmarket leader Gosden said when asked of a chance at having a crack at America: “Having had a lot of success at Del Mar over the years, I do know that straight very well, and I always feel they should pick up the finishing wire and move it another 100 yards down.

“It’s a very short straight and a different style of racing. This is a horse who enjoys the length of the straight. I don’t think it’s going to suit him.”

“I would be inclined to look towards the Arc and Champions Day.”

2021 duel Oaks winner Snowfall, who also contests in Yorkshire this week, heads the betting for the mile-and-a-half feature event later this year after a three-win streak since the turn of the year, with Aidan O’Brien chasing a first victory in the contest since 2016.
