The Montjeu colt has displayed admirable versatility so far this year, winning twice over a mile and a quarter before stepping up to two miles to take the Queen's Vase at Royal Ascot.
He came back to a mile and three-quarters to claim Classic glory at Doncaster earlier this month and will now pit his wits against the world's top mile-and-a-half performers in France.
Epsom Derby hero Ruler Of The World, Camelot and Kingsbarns are the other potential Ballydoyle representatives in the Arc.
O'Brien told At The Races: "The four (Arc) horses are Ruler Of The World, Leading Light, Camelot and Kingsbarns.
"I think we're going to supplement the Leger horse and then obviously we'll get closer to the weekend (before knowing) about ground (conditions) because Camelot would only run if it was good or better.
"He (Leading Light) obviously hasn't done a lot (since Doncaster) - it's not that long ago - but everything he's done we've been happy with."
