French option for Regardez

Ralph Beckett is planning a trip to Deauville on July 31 for his impressive recent Newcastle winner Regardez.

Third in the Musidora but unable to show much in the Investec Oaks, the daughter of Champs Elysees landed Friday night's Listed Hoppings Stakes by six lengths.

"I think the race for her now might be the Prix de Psyche in France, it's a Group Three race over a mile and a quarter," Beckett said.

The Hampshire trainer landed another Listed race with a useful filly over the weekend when Evita Peron claimed the Eternal Stakes at Newmarket.

Newsells Park Stud's home-bred had earlier finished fourth in the German 1000 Guineas.

Beckett said: "I'm not quite sure about her. She's a possible for the Oak Tree Stakes but she's ground dependent and I'm not quite sure if Goodwood's the right track for her. We might have to look at other options."
