John Gosden is cool on the idea of running Roaring Lion in the Qipco 2000 Guineas at Newmarket on Saturday week.

The Qatar Racing-owned colt failed to strengthen his Guineas claims after he could only finish third in the Craven Stakes, in which he was sent off the 8-13 favourite, at Newmarket last Thursday.

Gosden feels Roaring Lion will be seen in a better light when stepped up in distance, and could swerve the Guineas in preference towards running in the Dante Stakes at York on May 17 - and then the French Derby at Chantilly on June 3.

The Clarehaven handler told At The Races: " The way he trains, it looks like the Dante-Prix du Jockey Club (French Derby) will be a smart move for him."
