We Are out of Diane

Unbeaten filly We Are will miss Sunday's Prix de Diane at Chantilly.

The daughter of Dansili did not see a racetrack until April, but won a maiden at Longchamp and followed up three weeks later at Saint-Cloud in conditions company.

Stepped up to the highest level for the Prix Saint-Alary back at Longchamp, she hacked up by three lengths and was strongly fancied to add a Classic to her record.

However, trainer Freddy Head is not happy with his charge and has ruled her out of the 10-furlong heat, also known as the French Oaks.

"The filly is not well," said Head.

"Maybe she has a virus or something, she is having tests.

"I've just not been happy with her for the last two days and I'd rather not run.

"I suppose we'll now maybe look at Deauville."
