Part-owned by Australian Lloyd Williams, Order Of St George ran third in the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe as part of an Aidan O'Brien-trained trifecta.

He will step up from 2400 metres to 3200 on Saturday in the Group Two race which also features Quest For More who ran ninth in last year's Melbourne Cup.

Trip To Paris, fourth in the 2015 Melbourne Cup, is also among the enrtries.
