Juddmonte Grand Prix de Paris runner-up Neufbosc will be aimed on the Prix Niel en route to the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe.
Trained by Pia Brandt, the Mastercraftsman colt has progressed steadily this season, winning a Listed race and a Group Three at ParisLongchamp.
Stepped up to Group One company for the first time on Saturday evening, he acquitted himself well, beaten just over a length by Aidan O’Brien’s Kew Gardens.
“I am very proud of my colt. He gave everything. It is for these kind of emotions that we wake up in the morning,” said Brandt.
“I thought he could pull it off, but I can’t say I am disappointed because he tried his best. We have seen the best of Neufbosc.
“He should now be aimed at the Qatar Prix Niel on his way to the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe.”
