Connections of Siyarafina will make a final decision on Thursday morning whether to supplement the filly for the Emirates Poule d’Essai des Pouliches at ParisLongchamp on Sunday.

Siyarafina did not work as well as expected in her final turf gallop to lower the chances of her going for the Classic, which is also known as the French 1000 Guineas.

The deadline for supplementary entries is 11.30am French time on Thursday.

Owned by the Aga Khan, Siyarafina had put herself under serious consideration to be added to the field after she came from last to first to win the Prix du Louvre at ParisLongchamp last month and follow-up her debut success just 18 days earlier.

“She wasn’t as good as she normally is in a gallop and we have had a lot of rain. We have to decide tomorrow, but I’m not sure,” said trainer Alain de Royer-Dupre.

“The filly is OK. I’d say it’s not 50-50, less than that.

“We have the Prix Saint Alary and many other possibilities for her.”
