John Gosden hopes Highgarden can use the Tattersalls Musidora Stakes at York as a stepping stone towards a potential outing at Royal Ascot.
The daughter of Nathaniel will jump up in class for the Group Three prize after finishing third in a novice contest on her return at Sandown last month.
Gosden said: “Highgarden goes to the Musidora. I think she strikes me as a Musidora and Ribblesdale type, but we will see after the Musidora.
“That was a very nice race at Sandown. She got a little caught for toe, but then stayed on and was suddenly running on again at the end.
“She is a Nathaniel and wants a mile and a half now.”
