Teppal could be seen in the Prix de la Foret at ParisLongchamp on Arc day as David Simcock plots an autumn campaign.

The Camacho filly took her record to three wins from as many starts when winning the French 1000 Guineas in May, but then ran below her best behind Alpha Centauri in the Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot.

Simcock said: "She had a bad blood test after Ascot. She has had a month quiet and is just starting up again. We will look for an autumn campaign for her.
