Improving French sprinter Rangali is to take up his entry in the Coolmore Nunthorpe Stakes at York later this month.
Despite a busy juvenile season, Alex Pantall's colt has made big strides at three and collected a six-furlong Listed race at Maisons-Laffitte in May.
A drop back to five furlongs brought about an even greater performance, with Rangali winning the Prix du Gros-Chene at Chantilly on French Derby day.
He beat leading domestic rival Catcall by two lengths with William Muir's reliable Stepper Point back in fourth.
The experienced Pantall, who trained Restiadargent to finish third to Black Caviar in the 2011 Diamond Jubilee Stakes, said: "If the horse is well, I think he will run at York.
"He has won a Group Two and there are not many Group Ones for him over the distance."
