Exciting juvenile Bruges is likely to bid to maintain his unbeaten record in the Juddmonte Beresford Stakes next month.
The David Myerscough-trained colt is still in the Urban-i Champagne Stakes on September 15, but is more likely to run nearer home in the Group Two contest over a mile at the Curragh 15 days later.
“He is unlikely to run in Doncaster,” said Myerscough.
“He’s probably going to stay in Ireland for the moment. There’s the Beresford Stakes over a mile at the Curragh at the end of September and that’s the more likely target.”
Bruges has made a good impression from two starts, making a winning debut at the Curragh in June and then taking a Listed race at Leopardstown in early July.
“He got a nasty stone bruise which held him back a bit. We’ve given him chance to get over that and he’s back in full work now and we’re very happy with him,” added the Newbridge-based handler.
