Polydream has the Prix Maurice de Gheest at Deauville as a target after she returned to winning ways at ParisLongchamp on Saturday.

Having beaten Karl Burke’s dual Group One winner Laurens last season and finished second to Wild Illusion in the Prix Marcel Boussac, Freddy Head had grand plans for her this season.

After a small hold-up in the spring, she endured a rushed preparation for the French 1000 Guineas but it was still disappointing that she failed to beat a single rival.

Dropped in trip at the weekend to seven furlongs, Polydream was an easy winner of a Group Three, beating older colts in the process.

“I think we’ll go for the Prix Maurice de Gheest, a Group One over six and a half furlongs,” said Head.

“She’s very quick, she’s showing a lot of speed in her work. She did it easy the other day and is a lovely filly.

“We will try her over a mile again at some point but we’ll wait until the end of the season, probably.”

Head is still aiming Luminate at the Prix de Diane after a luckless run in the Prix Cleopatre at Saint-Cloud in May.

Winner of her first three races, she met trouble in running before flying home to be second, only to be demoted to fifth.

“She’ll still go for the Diane,” said Head.

“She should have won, she was unlucky. She should be going there unbeaten, but she’ll go there with a good chance.”
