Tac De Boistron will be aimed at the Prix du Cadran at Longchamp on October 6 after his effortless win at Chester on Saturday.
The six-year-old returned to Europe after a stint with Mick Kent in Australia where he was unplaced in two starts in the Geelong and Melbourne Cups.
His Chester win came at his second start for new trainer Marco Botti when he bolted in by eight lengths.
“I think we’ll probably send him back to France for his next race,” Botti said.
“The Prix du Cadran on Arc de Triomphe day would look the next logical step.
“The way he handles soft ground is obviously a plus because the odds are it is likely to have some cut in the ground by then.
“Soft ground is the key to him. When he ran in the Melbourne Cup the ground was way too firm so there is not much point in aiming him at that again as he’s very unlikely to get his ground.
“He won a Group Two in France last season on soft ground so we’re hoping a return there will work.
“He was very impressive on Saturday.”
