No Frankel clash for Camelot
Camelot could have one more outing before bidding to complete the Triple Crown in the Ladbrokes St Leger - but he won't face Frankel at York.
The 2000 Guineas and Investec Derby hero kept his unbeaten record intact with a determined victory in Saturday's Irish Derby and is now set for a midsummer break.
A trip to Town Moor is firmly on the agenda as he aims to become the first horse since Nijinsky in 1970 to win the Guineas, Derby and Leger in Britain, but plans in the meantime are up in the air.
What does seem unlikely, however, is that the three-year-old will be taking on Frankel in next month's Juddmonte International at the Knavesmire.
Trainer Aidan O'Brien said on Sunday afternoon: "Camelot seems fine this morning and ate up well.
"Obviously the St Leger is the race we're looking at and he'll either have a racecourse gallop or a race in between.
"We will do the same after all the big races and wait a week before sitting down to discuss what will happen.
"To be honest, there aren't that many options between now and then. The Juddmonte International at York wouldn't be an ideal prep for the St Leger as he'd be coming back to a mile and a quarter - he is a strong traveller and we worked hard at getting him to settle."
