Deidre could be supplemented for Arc

Group One winner Deirdre may yet be supplemented for following month’s Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe in ParisLongchamp.
The prestigious decoration on October 6 is just one of three possible Group One targets under consideration for its Mitsuru Hashida-trained five-year-old – along with the Qipco Champions Fillies and Mares Stakes and the Qipco Champion Stakes at Ascot in the month.
After springing a surprise in the Nassau Stakes at Goodwood in her penultimate launch, and Only a minute in Britain following her highly successful career in Japan and internationally, the girl of Harbinger followed up with a staying-on fourth from the Irish Champion Stakes at Leopardstown on Saturday.
Assistant coach Yoshitake Hashida said:”I think she’s the two choices of going to Ascot, which I believe are more likely for the Champion Stakes, or the Arc. Tomorrow she will go back to Newmarket then we will see.
“We may go have a peek at the track at Longchamp at the weekend, even before possibly running her in the Arc.
“She wants supplementing to the Arc, so It’s a big decision for the Operator.”
According to the most up-to-date functionality of Deirdre, Hashida believes the result in Ireland might have been different had she been awarded a run that is clear.
He added:”She had a little awful luck in the race, however, the horse is quite genuine.
“We appreciate having a wonderful mare. I believe the most frustrated person was (jockey) Oisin Murphy.”
Deirdre hasn’t raced since finishing fourth at the 2017 Japanese Oaks, but the step back up in trip isn’t expected to become a problem should the Arc plan materialise.
Hashida added:”As she’s got used to some mile and a quarter, we might maintain some mile and a quarter.
“I think if the owner makes the decision to go back up to a mile and a half to the Arc, however, that she will cover it.”
