O’Brien’s dual Guineas winner missed an outing at Goodwood due to the soft ground and connections are keen to try a new trip and get him back in the winners’ enclosure

AIDAN O’BRIEN is ready to step Churchill up in trip for next week’s Juddmonte International at York.

O’Brien’s colt skipped the Sussex Stakes at Goodwood and connections are hoping the dual Guineas winner can bounce back to winning ways on his first try at a mile and a quarter.

Should Churchill run, he will renew his rivalry with Barney Roy who beat him in the St James’s Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot. 

O’Brien told “Churchill looks like he is going to go there. We are happy with him and we are looking forward to it.

  • TREBLE 6.50 Wolverhampton – African Beat: ‘Bound to be in the mix returning to this trip.’  (add to your betslip)

“If he is going to go there (mile and a quarter) we need to try it now. We always thought it would be well within his compass.”

Irish Derby winner Capri could head for the Betway Great Voltigeur in a bid to boost his William Hill St Leger claims.

O’Brien added: “Capri is in it and Venice Beach is in it. That type of horse they are all there. The horse that won at Leopardstown the other night (Spanish Steps) is in it.

“So we have three or four possibles for that.”

Plans are also in place to drop Washington DC back down to the minimum trip on the Knavesmire for a second shot at the Coolmore Nunthorpe Stakes.

He gained his second win of the season after landing a six furlong Group 3 at the Curragh on Sunday.

He added: “That is where he could end up next. A fast pace and following the other horses will suit him. That’s very possible.”
