Nathaniel could face Frankel
Nathaniel could take on Frankel in the Juddmonte International Stakes at York following his narrow King George defeat.
The John Gosden-trained four-year-old, who won the Coral-Eclipse only two weeks earlier, went down by a nose to Arc winner Danedream.
Nathaniel could renew rivalry with his Ascot nemesis at Longchamp in October, but might have a more pressing engagement against the world's highest-rated thoroughbred.
"He ate up well and is fine," said Gosden. "The great thing is that he doesn't know he got beat. He thinks it was a dead-heat!
"The races we are looking at for him are the Juddmonte International, the Arc, and the Champion Stakes at Leopardstown and Newmarket.
"He will probably run in two of those."
