Dawn Approach is likely to run in both the Qipco Sussex Stakes at Goodwood and the Prix Jacques le Marois at Deauville after returning to his best at Royal Ascot.

The impressive 2000 Guineas winner showed his self destruction in the Derby to be a one-off when holding off Toronado in the St James's Palace Stakes and he is likely to meet that rival again at the Glorious meeting on 31 July.

If all goes well there he is then due to head to France and a meeting with impressive French Derby winner Intello in the Jacques le Marois on 11 August before Ascot on Champions Day in October.

"We're looking at the Sussex Stakes and the Jacques le Marois and the QEII at the end of the year," said Bolger.

"My personal hope would be that he'd run in all three and win all three!"
