Anodor may have a prep run before going for the Poule d’Essai Des Poulains.

Trainer Freddy Head will consider the Prix de Fontainebleau at Longchamp in April before going back there in search of Classic success in the French 2000 Guineas a month later.

“He’s doing very well – he is in full training. The French Guineas, that will be the aim for the moment,” said Head.

“I think maybe he will have a prep race in the Fontainebleau.”

Anodor was a leading juvenile last year, winning his first two races before only being beaten a length by Royal Marine in the Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere on his latest start.

Head is looking to give Call The Wind a run on home soil first, before sending him to Meydan for the Dubai Gold Cup on March 30.

“He’s due to run in Dubai in the Gold Cup. He could run before that in France,” he said.

“I’m very happy with him.”

Call The Wind, a son of Frankel, ended a fine 2018 campaign with victory in the Prix du Cadran at Longchamp in October.

Head is also looking forward to greeting Polydream back to his stable in the next week, following a winter break.

“She is still on her holidays. I am expecting her back next week,” he said.

“I don’t know what we will do with her yet. As far as I know, she is very well.”

Polydream enjoyed Group One success in the Prix Maurice de Gheest but had no luck in running when beaten in the Prix de la Foret.

Her season ended on a sour note when she was withdrawn from the Breeders’ Cup Mile, because vets believed her to be lame – much to Head’s annoyance.
