Dar Re Mi is poised to take her chance in the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe next weekend.
The John Gosden-trained filly was denied a third Group One success on the bounce when the stewards at Longchamp controversially demoted her to fifth place in the Prix Vermeille, a verdict upheld at a subsequent appeal.
Following the appeal in France, owner Madeleine Lloyd Webber said today: “The appeal and the Arc are two issues and we cannot connect the two, as we have to do whatever is right for the filly.
“If the filly is fit and well and if John Gosden thinks she should run, she will run and take her chance and it will be the right thing for the filly’s career.
“Dar Re Mi worked very well this morning and she is going to have her last bit of work on Tuesday.
“The Arc is a world-class race in its own right and you have to forget about where it is being held. We would be delighted if something would change (in the French rules) or if there was some modernisation of the racing rules as a result of this.
“I hope that Dar Re Mi might be a catalyst for change in the future.”
Gosden said: “There has been no decision at this stage.
“She worked this morning and went very nicely, but we will see how she is over the next few days and it will be up to the filly.”
Prior to the Vermeille, Dar Re Mi had lowered the colours of dual Oaks winner Sariska at York and is a best-priced 20-1 for Arc glory, although some firms go just half that price.
