Dual Arc winner Treve is the headline attraction among the 13 names left in Sunday's Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud at the latest forfeit stage.

The five-year-old returned to action in the Prix Corrida over an extended mile and a quarter at the Parisian track last month against her own sex, proving a cut above the opposition in cruising to a four-length victory in the hands of Thierry Jarnet.

Trainer Criquette Head-Maarek has also left in Altaira in the same Al Shaqab Racing colours as her stable star.

Harry Herbert, racing manager to Al Shaqab, said: "Touch wood, Treve is in tremendous form and Criquette is very pleased with her.

"There is a bit of rain around and we would like some of that. You saw in her last race she seems to be better than ever and hopefully she will put up a bold performance and take another step in the right direction before a shot at a third Arc.

"Her last race was over a trip too short for her, so imagine how far she would have won by if it was over a mile and a half.

"It is lovely to see her come out of a race so well. We go into Sunday full of hope."

Latest Racing Stories

Andre Fabre, chasing an eighth victory in the race, can call on Manatee, Feodora and Hong Kong Vase hero Flintshire.

Fabre said of Flintshire: "He's going for the Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud and he's going to run a good race.

"The ground will suit him probably and we'll see. He's always been a consistent horse."

Alain de Royer-Dupre, who last won back in 2010 with Sarafina, could be represented by both Dolniya and Dauran.

The David Simcock-trained Madame Chiang is the sole British contender. The list is completed by Al Waab, Meleagros, Prince Gibraltar, Frine and Siljan's Saga.
