John Gosden is looking towards the Juddmonte Royal Lodge Stakes with promising juvenile Roaring L ion.

The Kitten's Joy colt has won both of his two starts to date, triumphing by six lengths at Kempton last time and prompting Gosden to eye a switch up to Group Two level at Newmarket on September 30.

He said: "He has won his first two starts and he might be running at Newmarket, hopefully in the Royal Lodge Stakes at the end of the month."

Stablemate Persuasive could also be in action at Headquarters, with Gosden targeting the Kingdom Of Bahrain Sun Chariot Stakes on October 7 following her third place in the Matron Stakes at the beginning of the month.

He said: "She was a little bit unlucky in Ireland - she came late from a wide draw off a slow pace. She will go for the Sun Chariot Stakes now."

Journey is also on course for a Group One assignment after having to settle for second in the Prix Vermeille last Sunday.

Gosden added: "All being well, she will try to retain her British Champions Fillies & Mares Stakes title on Champions Day at Ascot. It gives a nice five-week break between races."
