Plans are in place to give Postponed the same prep run ahead of his repeat bid for glory in the Dubai Sheema Classic on World Cup night.

Trainer Roger Varian will again aim the five-year-old at the Dubai City Of Gold, before tackling the mile-and-a-half prize on March 25.

After registering victories in both the Coronation Cup and Juddmonte International on his return to Europe, the son of Dubawi had to settle for fifth on his final start in the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe in October.

Varian said: “The plan is to run him in the City Of Gold three weeks ahead of the Sheema Classic.

“He is in good cantering work at the moment and his fast work will start towards the end of January.”
