Canada a precaution for Fairy
Ed Dunlop has played down speculation that Snow Fairy could be re-routed from the Arc to the E.P Taylor Stakes in Woodbine Canada a week later.
The Newmarket trainer has stressed he is merely keeping all avenues open for his top-class mare.
The Arc at Longchamp on Sunday week, in which she finished third last year, remains the target for the seven-times Group One winner, subject to ground conditions.
"Everything's fine, we'll have a weather watch and wait and see," said Dunlop.
"Every opportunity is there for Snow Fairy. It (the E.P Taylor) is a precaution. It's not a planned run.
"It's purely there as an option for her if the ground is very soft (at Longchamp) or whatever."
