Dawn could rise in France

Trainer Jim Bolger has mapped out a possible plan for Dawn Approach which could include a trip to France for the Prix Jacques le Marois at Deauville in August.

The 2000 Guineas winner endured a terrible time in the Derby, but just 17 days later Bolger worked miracles to get him back to winning form in the St James's Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot on Tuesday.

The Sussex Stakes at Goodwood, the Prix Jacques le Marois and the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes back at Ascot could now be on the agenda.

"He's very well, I'm told this morning he's bucking and squealing, so he'll pick up quickly," Bolger told Channel 4 Racing.

"He's entered in Goodwood, there'll be the Jacques le Marois as well and then there's back here for the QEII, so we'll be picking from them."
