Connections change Laurens' plans
Owner John Dance has confirmed Laurens will now run at York next after connections decided to change her route this season.
The four-year-old was last in action at the end of July and she got back to winning ways over a mile in the Prix Rothschild at Deauville.
That win was Laurens' first since October 2018 and trainer Karl Burke had started to assess a number of options.
The Prix de la Foret was the number one target over seven furlongs but it now appears that York and Ireland are next on the agenda.
Dance told reporters: "We have decided against the Prix Jean Romanet, it's a quick enough turnaround and we definitely want to go back for the Matron, but that is six weeks away.
"We've digested her last run and had a look at her sectional times, the speed she was showing, and we're itching to try her over seven furlongs again.
"She hasn't run over it since her two-year-old days, but she's bigger and stronger and is showing more and more speed and we'd all like to try the Foret, which would mean missing the Sun Chariot the day before.
"If this is her last season, which it probably will be, I don't want to look at her in a field thinking, 'I wonder how she would have fared over shorter?'."
