Noel Meade is considering a range of great race options for his Group 1 winner, Helvic Dream.
Meade has enjoyed endless success at the highest level on vaults in his career, but the four-year-old’s Tattersalls Gold Cup victory at the Curragh in May was by far his biggest on the flat.
The Power gelding has not raced since but is reported to be in good shape as Meade expects suitable ground conditions.
The County Meath coach said: “We are waiting on soft ground, but he wouldn’t be ready until mid-September. He entered the Irish Champion Stakes (Saturday week), but to be honest I don’t not really think it is realistic with the terrain and the probable quality of the terrain.
“However, if the ground was soft, he could run there – because the plan is to go and get the Prix Dollar at Longchamp on Arc weekend and then, if it gets soft, we might have a chance at the English Champion Stakes. He’s in great shape. “
Meade had a welcome return on the winning streak in Roscommon on Monday with Too Bright, and added: “We’ve been tearing our hair out for the last five or six weeks, but I hope they come back to them- same now. “
