Overseas plan for Aljazzi

Aljazzi could make her first start outside of Britain in the Denny Cordell Lavarack and Lanwades Stud Fillies Stakes at Gowran Park.

Aljazzi (l) wins at Haydock earlier this month

The extended nine-furlong Group Three prize on September 18 has been earmarked as one of two potential targets for the three-year-old by trainer Marco Botti.

The Prix Bertrand de Tarragon over the same trip at Maisons-Laffitte on September 21 is also an option for Aljazzi, who finished down the field in the 1000 Guineas in May but made a successful return from a three-month break in a Listed contest at Haydock earlier this month.

The Newmarket handler said: "She's entered in Ireland and will probably be entered in the race in France.

"We want to step her up beyond a mile and we can't really see much in the next three or four weeks in so will probably go abroad with her.

"Although it was only a Listed race she won last time there were some decent fillies in there.

"She did well as she hadn't run since the Guineas and she probably needed the run so hopefully she will come on for it.

"She went a little bit light after the Guineas so we gave her a little bit of time just to freshen her up a bit. It was not a case of her having a setback.

"Once we have seen the entries we will know which race we will go for, while the ground will also play a part."
