They sportingly decided to bring her back into training in the hope she could become the first horse to win the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe three times.
Harry Herbert, Al Shaqab racing manager, said: “Treve is in fantastic form. I saw her last week and she looked absolutely terrific. She is fuller than she was last year and is moving beautifully, seeming to have retained all her old zest.

“Provided she’s straight enough and done enough work-wise, which I’m sure she has, she’ll give a really good account of herself.
It’s wonderful having her for this attempt for a third Arc. Everything that goes on at this time of year is a bonus as she’s a proper autumn filly.
“It seems to be that she thrives later on in the year, but, I have to say, there is a different look about her right now than perhaps I saw in the spring of last year. She had a little back issue and some foot issues (last season), but she seems really well. The way she’s moving and striding out is impressive.”
Treve faces eight rivals, with Freddy Head’s Group One winner We Are the next in the betting.
