Surprise Investec Derby winner Serpentine will head to France for his next outing in the Juddmonte Grand Prix de Paris.

The Group One on September 13 takes place at ParisLongchamp on the same day as the Prix Vermeille and Prix Foy, but there will be no Prix Niel this season as a result.

Serpentine made every yard of the running at Epsom – winning by five and a half lengths, having only broken his maiden a week earlier.

“The plan with him is to go for the Grand Prix de Paris on the same day as the Arc trials,” said trainer Aidan O’Brien.

“The lads (owners Coolmore) wanted to keep him at a mile and a half, with a view that he could go for the Arc or something like that.

“Santiago, we always had marked down with the Leger – which is why we’re going to Goodwood with him in between – (and) I wouldn’t imagine Serpentine will go the Leger.”
