Persona Grata in French mission
Persona Grata is among four British challengers in a field of 13 seeking Group Three honours in the Prix Fille De L'Air at Toulouse on Friday.
Sir Michael Stoute's Rostova, the Luca Cumani-trained Rosental and David O'Meara's All About Time complete the cross-Channel raid in hope of capturing the near £30,000 first prize.
Persona Grata, trained by Ed Walker, has been a frequent visitor to France and won two Listed races there last term.
Although she has yet to add to those triumphs in 2016, she has run well in defeat and was fifth in a Group One in Italy on her latest excursion.
"She loves her trips over to France. It looks a winnable Group Three and we'd be expecting her to run a very big race," said Walker's assistant Jack Steels.
Rosental bids to follow-up her success in the Listed Prix Dahlia at Saint-Cloud last month.
"She has been in good form at home since her win at Saint-Cloud last month and we are hopeful of another bold showing," the Newmarket trainer told www.lucacumani.com.
