Jim Bolger is hoping to run Derby hero New Approach twice more this season as the colt continues to recover from a muscle problem.

The son of Galileo has not run since his Epsom triumph after soreness related to his injury ruled him out of a double bid in the Irish Derby last month.

“New Approach is coming along well. I’m not sure where his next race will be, but we are looking at the possibility of him having another couple of races this year,” Bolger told the Racing Post.

“He’s in the Juddmonte International, the Irish Champion Stakes, the Arc and the Breeders’ Cup and he may run in two of those races.”
