Treve remains on course for the Prince of Wales's Stakes at Royal Ascot next week after coming through her final piece of serious work with flying colours.

Last year's stunning Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe heroine lost her unbeaten record on her reappearance at Longchamp in April, going down narrowly to subsequent Prix d'Ispahan and Coronation Cup winner Cirrus Des Aigles in the Prix Ganay.

Criquette Head-Maarek is now preparing her filly for a first trip across the Channel and could not be happier with her condition.

"She seems fine. She had a good piece of work last Tuesday. That was the last piece of work she had to do (before Ascot) and she seems very well," the trainer told At The Races.

"There's no complications - she's on her way.

"If she wins (at Royal Ascot) she'll go for the Prix Vermeille and then the Arc.

"If she doesn't win and we have to drop her in class, we'll see."
