Euchen Glen is back in work as he continues to recover from the season-ending tendon injury he sustained last year.

The six-year-old was an impressive winner of John Smith’s Cup at York last July, beating Thundering Blue by two and a quarter lengths, with the winner going on to win a Group Two, as well as being Group One-placed.

Trainer Jim Goldie had been planning to run in the Ebor on the way to a possible Melbourne Cup bid, but those plans were scuppered when Euchen Glen sustained the injury that has kept him on the sidelines since.

However, while the Authorized gelding has been back training, Goldie underlined there are no definite plans in place yet.

He said: “Whether we run him this year is debatable.

“We will probably give him two months of training, scan it again and take a decision then.

“The vet advised us to put him in training, just to get him going again and stretch it out, and see how that goes.

“He’s won on soft ground so there would be some interesting options at the end of the year, but we’ll take our time.”
