When asked about the conditions he needs to race and whether he will get the trip with huge question marks over the colts stamina having not running further than six furlongs
He added: "He's bred to stay a mile, but he showed a lot of speed at two. I wouldn't think he would get much further than a mile."

Gosden said: "He's still in the race and we'll see. He'll work and we'll make a decision. We would like to see a little bit of rain."
