Connections of Expert Eye have not ruled out the possibility of stepping him back up to a mile and supplementing him for the Qatar Sussex Stakes at Goodwood.

The Sir Michael Stoute-trained three-year-old got his career back on track at Royal Ascot when winning the Jersey Stakes – his first victory since last year’s Vintage Stakes at the Sussex track.

Expert Eye is already entered for the Group Two Lennox Stakes over seven furlongs, but would have to be added to the field for the Group One Sussex over a mile at a cost of £70,000.

Teddy Grimthorpe, racing manager to owner Khalid Abdullah, said: “He is looking at going to Goodwood. We will see how he is and see how he goes, then make a decision.

“We would look at both races (Lennox and Sussex Stakes) and see how we go from there.

“He won the Vintage over seven furlongs last year and on the way he won the Jersey (over seven), you would expect him to get the mile.

“It was a great effort by the team to get him back no question.

“With horses there is always something and it is just a case of getting the right balance and having all the right parts coming together, which the team did at Ascot.”

A step back up to Pattern company appears to be on the cards for the John Gosden-trained Monarchs Glen following his victory in the Wolferton Stakes at the Royal meeting.

Grimthorpe added: “He could go to something like the Group Three Rose of Lancaster at Haydock now.

“Nothing really went right out in Dubai for him. It was good to see him back winning.”
