Sruthan will return to action in the Invesco Pension Consultants Desmond Stakes at Leopardstown on 14 August.

Paul Deegan's stable star has beeen on a short break since finding the ground too fast when well beaten in the Lockinge Stakes in May.

Prior to that he had won the Concorde Stakes on his final start of last season and the Gladness Stakes first time out this campaign.

"He didn't handle the ground at Newbury and he's been on a bit of a holiday," said Deegan.

"All going well he'll have three more runs this season, the Desmond Stakes, the Solonoway and the Concorde Stakes at Tipperary.

"There's a nice programme for him and then we can start again next season.

"While it didn't work out in the Lokcinge, we learned a lot about him and he handled the travelling. He just needs a bit of dig in the ground to be seen at his best."
