Dancing Rain remains in the mix to defend her Qipco British Champions Fillies' And Mares' Stakes title at the five-day stage.

William Haggas' four-year-old had a great time of it last season, winning the Oaks at Epsom before her success on Champions Day.

Unfortunately she has not run this season due to injury, but her name is at the top of 10 acceptors for the Group Two contest.

Stablemate Vow may also run for Haggas.

John Gosden's Great Heavens, who was supplemented into the Arc, may still run in the race that was her original end-of-season target.

There are two possible French challengers, Jehannedarc from Alain de Royer-Dupre's stable and Andre Fabre's La Pomme DAmour.

Dermot Weld's Sapphire has enjoyed a good season and may make the trip over while Aidan O'Brien's Oaks winner Was will look to regain the winning thread.

Hughie Morrison's Shirocco Star, the Ed Dunlop-trained Testosterone and the supplemented Semayyel, who represents Clive Brittain, complete the possibles.
