York’s Juddmonte International in August is seen as a likely objective for Poet’s Word following his surprise victory over Cracksman in the Prince of Wales’s Stakes at Royal Ascot.

There are several options over a mile and a quarter and a mile and a half for the progressive five-year-old entire now that he has landed his first Group One triumph.

The Coral-Eclipse and the King George VI And Queen Elizabeth Stakes next month are among the alternatives for trainer Sir Michael Stoute to consider.

“I don’t think he’ll go for the Eclipse, he could go for the King George, but Sir Michael also has Crystal Ocean (winner of the Hardwicke Stakes) and there wouldn’t be a lot between them,” said Bruce Raymond, racing manager to owner Saeed Suhail.

“Sir Michael usually makes the right judgement in these things. I’m sure that horse will go for the King George. Whether Poet’s Word does or not, it’s up to Sir Michael.

“A good race for Poet’s Word would be the Juddmonte International at York, which I think he’ll go for. Whether he’ll run before that, I don’t know.”
