Talaayeb aimed at Sun Chariot
Talaayeb could return to the top table for the first time since finishing fourth in the 1000 Guineas if she is given the go-ahead for the Kingdom of Bahrain Sun Chariot Stakes at Newmarket on October 7.
The mile Group One prize is one of two options, alongside the Challenge Stakes on October 13 over a furlong shorter, under consideration for the daughter of Dansili.
Talaayeb failed to see out a mile and a quarter in a Listed event at Newbury in June, but the Owen Burrows-trained three-year-old bounced back to form when dropped back to seven furlongs in a Group Three at York in August.
She was last seen finishing fourth in the Sceptre Stakes at Doncaster on Friday.
The Lambourn handler said: "I have left her in the Sun Chariot and there is either that or the Challenge Stakes for her. It all depends on how the ground is and we will see how she is.
"She seems fine after Doncaster and appears to have taken the race better than I thought she would, but she has probably matured a little.
"The ground was too soft for her at Doncaster. Dane (O'Neill) said she travelled great but that she could not quicken up in that ground."
