Sefton an option for Graphic

The Earl of Sefton Stakes at Newmarket's Craven meeting is a potential target for Graphic following his victory at Doncaster on Saturday.

The five-year-old won four times during a successful 2013 campaign and claimed the Doncaster Mile by a neck on his seasonal bow.

He could now test the water at Group Three level on April 17, but only if trainer William Haggas is confident his charge has recovered from his weekend exertions.

Haggas said: "He got a bit tired in the end, but he did it well and I think it was probably a career-best run, so we can only be pleased.

"The plan before Doncaster was to go to Newmarket for the Earl of Sefton, but he did have a hard enough race on Saturday.

"We'll see how he is over the next week or so and decide whether he'll go to Newmarket or not, but it's not certain at this stage."
