Irish 2,000 Guineas winner Phoenix Of Spain is likely to step up in trip for his next outing.

Charlie Hills was left scratching his head after the grey ran a lacklustre race at Goodwood behind the recently-retired Too Darn Hot in the Sussex Stakes.

He holds entries in the Juddmonte International at York and also the Irish Champion Stakes at Leopardstown on September 14.

“He had a canter (on Tuesday) and moved really nicely. We are just scratching our heads,” said Hills.

“Whether the track suited him, I’m not sure, as plenty of horses don’t handle Goodwood.

“We don’t know where we are going to go straight away, but the next week or two will tell us where to go.

“I think we are definitely looking to step him up to 10 furlongs, he is in a couple of 10-furlong races now and that is something we will look towards.

“We have a couple more tests to do this week and we will know a bit more.”
