Camelot could use the Qipco Champion Stakes at Ascot on Saturday week as a springboard towards the Breeders' Cup meeting in November.

Trainer Aidan O'Brien is also considering a race on the Dundalk all-weather as the four-year-old former three-time Classic winner edges closer to his protracted return to the track.

O'Brien said: "He may run either in Ascot or in a Listed race a Dundalk.

"We have one eye on the Breeders' Cup, he's a horse that needs good ground.

"Conditions would normally suit him in America."

Camelot has been cautiously campaigned since he suffered colic last autumn.

He has not been sighted since finishing fourth in the Prince of Wales's Stakes at Royal Ascot in June.
