Whozthecat could return to the Curragh for the Rockingham Handicap following his excellent effort at the home of Irish Flat racing on Saturday.

Trainer Declan Carroll will consider the valuable five-furlong contest on 21 July for the six-year-old after he found only Burn The Boats three-quarters of a length too good in the 30-runner Paddy Power Sprint over six and a half furlongs.

"It was a cracking run and we were chuffed with it," said the East Yorkshire handler.

"It was a lottery of a race. We fancied him to run well but you'd be off your head to say you'd win a 30-runner handicap like that.

"We were really pleased with the run from the horse, as he was up at the sharp end all the way and did it well.

"We'll have a look at plans, but we might go back to the Curragh for the Rockingham Handicap over five furlongs.

"We'll look at that and some of those sprints back home as well later on."
