Postponed could be bound for the Breeders’ Cup Turf should he be none the worse for his run in the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe.

Roger Varian said of his top-class middle-distance performer who won at York last week:

“He’s a great horse and I’m so pleased with how he’s come out of the race,” Varian told At The Races.

“You’re never quite sure when you run him back off a setback. You want that first run back to bring him forward and not send him backwards again.

“It’s certainly brought him forward. He’s come out of the race bouncing. He looks tighter and fresher for the run. I couldn’t be more pleased with how he looks since the Juddmonte.

“It was important to achieve that Group One win over 10 furlongs. Whether he needs to go over 10 furlongs again, possibly not. He’ll step back up to a mile and a half for a crack at the Arc next time.

“I think we’ll go straight to the Arc.

“If he comes through the Arc unscathed, we’d consider a crack at the Breeders’ Cup Turf and I should think that would be it for the year, but we’ve got a big one to focus on right now.”
