Challenge Cup date for Captain
Ayr Gold Cup hero Captain Ramius is to step back up to seven furlongs for the Betfred Challenge Cup at Ascot for his next start.
Trainer Kevin Ryan had the Heritage Handicap at the Berkshire track on October 6 in mind for the six-year-old before he lifted Europe's richest sprint handicap on Saturday.
"He'll go to Ascot. That was always the plan after Ayr," the North Yorkshire handler told At The Races.
"We've got a couple of weeks to get him nice and fresh again. He's got good form on the course and that will probably be his last race of the season.
"I don't think we'll take him back to Dubai. He'll have a nice winter break here and then see where we are with him. We have a few in the Ascot race and there will be only be 18 runners so all those that get in the race will run if they are OK."
