Having claimed a first Derby victory with Masar, before Line Of Duty added another Breeders' Cup success to his CV, the Newmarket handler capped the year off by becoming the first British trainer to win the Melbourne Cup with Cross Counter.
Though both Masar and unbeaten Group One winner Quorto will be out of action through injury for the first part of the campaign, the year-old hopes Line Of Duty can give him another taste of Classic glory when returning in the Qipco Guineas.
Appleby said: "The plan is to start off in the Guineas. He is a horse I am hoping we are working back from a potential Derby route with.
He is an individual where I think the track will suit at Epsom. If we are happy with the Guineas and we think stepping him up in trip will be his forte, we will freshen him up and have a crack at the Derby".
With Cross Counter demonstrating stamina is not an issue in the Melbourne Cup and then on his return in the Dubai Gold Cup, he looks set to be a force to be reckoned with in the staying division back home.
Appleby said: "We knew he was a class three-year-old going down there and the way he won the Melbourne Cup, hopefully he was better than average, and he backed that up in the Dubai Gold Cup.
Although Masar is unlikely to be sighted until Royal Ascot at the earliest, Appleby has his eyes on making sure his Epsom hero is fit and ready to take aim at his main target - the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe.
He said: "I mentioned the Hardwicke at Ascot as a potential comeback as that is the most obvious race for him and at the moment timing-wise it looks potentially achievable.

There are plenty of nice races for him. The Hardwicke Stakes at Royal Ascot is a possible early target, and later maybe the Canadian International at Woodbine in October.
He's a nice horse to have in the stable, he's part of the family. He, too, is ear-marked for the international squad in the autumn. He's a very interesting colt.
He has a lot of natural pace, but his pedigree suggests he should stay the Derby trip. I was pleased with his second to Military March in the Group 3 Autumn Stakes at Newmarket in October, he went to the line well and they were seven lengths clear of the third.
He won well on very soft ground in France last start, so his programme is largely ground-dependent. For this reason, we'll save him for an autumn campaign.
I believe that because of his mental attitude. He's a relaxed character, and if he was later asked to step up in trip, I think he has the right mindset for it.
As for his physical attributes, he won six races as a juvenile, and three of them were on three of Britain's most challenging courses — Epsom, Goodwood and Newmarket.
His athleticism is a key asset. He's pleased me in his work in preparation for the Guineas and, provided there are no hiccups, I think he'll give a very good account of himself.

His previous close second to Threat in the Champagne Stakes at Doncaster was a pointer to his potential.
He's a colt with plenty of natural pace and, while we are open minded about his optimum trip long term, the more immediate plan is to go down the sprinting route, starting with the Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot next month.
Most of our two-year-olds tend to need a little time to come to hand, and in a normal year, we would be looking to unveil some nice types at the Newmarket July Meeting.
But with a later start to the season, it won't make much difference. I am confident we will see her very best going further than a mile.
BLUE POINT. We tested the waters over seven in the Dewhurst and while he didn't disgrace himself, he clearly showed he was better over six.
He looks like a sprinter. He has a big backside and is thick through the shoulders. We will work back from the Commonwealth Cup and look towards the Sandy Lane at Haydock as a starting point.
His form is rock solid. He had some niggles in the autumn so we took him out to Dubai. We went there with the intention to run, but with Thunder Snow out there, there was no point in clashing heads with him so we have taken our time with him.
