Meehan said: “He is in good shape and is just having a few days off. I’m not sure whether he will go to the Morny yet. I will see what the owners say and decide at the end of the week.
“I was really keen on going there, but I might just bring him back and give him an extra bit of time as he is a horse with a future.
“Physically he has a lot of scope and he is a really exciting prospect.”

He added: “He could go the Commonwealth Cup route, but I don’t see any reason why he won’t get a bit further.
“He is a horse that strikes me will get seven and there is no reason he wouldn’t get a mile.
“It is wonderful to have the Commonwealth Cup as an alternative as it means you don’t have to campaign them over a mile in the spring as there is that lovely alternative programme.
“What it is doing is keeping those sort of horses in the country rather than being sold abroad.”
