Aidan O'Brien looks set to have three leading chances in next weekend's Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe.

The Chantilly showpiece is on the agenda for Gold Cup winner Order Of St George, together with King George VI And Queen Elizabeth Stakes victor Highland Reel and top-class filly Found, who has finished second on her last five outings, all at Group One level.

O'Brien's star three-year-old filly Minding has a number of options at Ascot on Champions Day.

The Ballydoyle trainer said: "Order Of St George, Found and Highland Reel are in the mix at the moment for the Arc.

"Minding may run next at Ascot. She has three options with the Fillies And Mares, Champion Stakes and the QEII.

"Promise To Be True could go for the Boussac (at Chantilly), and we will decide on other plans for France during the week."

Meanwhile, O'Brien reported his Cheveley Park Stakes one-two Brave Anna and Roly Poly to have taken their exertions at Newmarket on Saturday well.

He added: "All the horses have come out of their races well at Newmarket yesterday. The two fillies, Brave Anna and Roly Poly, could go to the Breeders' Cup. Fast ground in Santa Anita would suit them."
