Sir Mark Prescott's superstar filly Alpinista could be set to swerve the Group Two Lillie Langtry Stakes at Glorious Goodwood and instead head over to Germany in August to bid for Group One glory.
Alpinista stole the show at Haydock in the Group Two Lancashire Oaks last time out, staying the 1m4f the best of the chasing pack to make it back to back wins.
The four year old daughter of Frankel had shown last season just how good she can be when chasing home the superstar Love in the Epsom Oaks and now she has trained on again this season with this win being the biggest of her career.
Having started the season off landing a Listed event at Goodwood over 1m4f, the step up to the Group Two was the natural progression and she stays so well.
Going forward it looks as though she is set to step up again in trip with the Lille Langtry at Glorious Goodwood the obvious event, but now the handler has expressed that he could alternatively be saved for a trip to Germany for the Group One in the Grosser Preis Von Berlin at Hoppegarten next month.
