Connections of Sangarius have not yet decided where he will make his next appearance following a recent comeback victory at Lingfield.

The son of Kingman looked a top-class prospect in the making when winning the 2019 Hampton Court Stakes at Royal Ascot for trainer Sir Michael Stoute and owner-breeder Khalid Abdullah.

However, Sangarius was not seen in competitive action again for 12 months, and could only finish fourth in the Brigadier Gerard Stakes at Haydock, albeit with three quality operators in front of him in Lord North, Elarqam and Telecaster.

He made his all-weather debut in last month’s Listed Quebec Stakes – and proved he retains plenty of ability in beating Bangkok and Dubai Warrior by a nose and a neck.

A trip to Saudi Arabia has since been mooted for the winner, but plans have not been finalised.

Abdullah’s racing manager, Teddy Grimthorpe, said: “We haven’t made any firm plans. We’re just sitting chilly for the moment – we’ll see how he is and see how he’s going.

“Prince Khalid is considering his options. Once he has decided, we’ll make that available.

“There are a number of things (under consideration).”
