Trainer Karl Burke gave the Classic-winning Laurens three weeks off after her success in the French Oaks, otherwise known as the Prix de Diane, and is bringing her back for the Group One over a mile and a half on August 23 when she would take on older fillies.

“I watched her canter this morning (Monday, July 23). She’s moving brilliant and she looks fantastic,” said Burke.

“She had a good, easy three weeks after the Prix de Diane. She put on 22 kilos during that time, but you wouldn’t know looking at her. She’s got such a big frame.

“She’s back in her full routine now and hopefully heading to the Yorkshire Oaks.”
