Henry Candy will walk the course at Goodwood before deciding whether to run Limato in the Qatar Lennox Stakes on Tuesday.
The five-year-old has been at the head of the ante-post betting for the seven-furlong Group Two, but is at his best on a quick surface, as he showed when winning the July Cup and the Prix de la Foret last season.
He has not run beyond six furlongs so far this term, over which he has been placed in the Diamond Jubilee Stakes and when trying to defend his July Cup crown.
“I’ll wait until I walk the course. He will only run if the ground is suitable,” said Candy.
“He’s in tremendous form.”
