Master Of Hounds will go for either the Qipco 2000 Guineas or the Kentucky Derby following his gallant effort in the UAE Derby.

The Aidan O'Brien-trained colt was touched off by a nose to Khawlah in the 10-furlong Group Two contest on Saturday to earn the right to go for even bigger prizes.

Cape Blanco, who was only beaten a length when fourth in the Dubai World Cup on the same Meydan card, could next go for the Singapore Airlines International Cup in May.

'Cape Blanco would have a Singapore option. Master Of Hounds is in the English 2000 Guineas and would have a Kentucky Derby option,' O`Brien told At The Races.

'We will see how they are and the next couple of weeks will tell us a lot. The Kentucky Derby is a great race. He handled the surface well out in Dubai and he's a horse that has tactical speed and we were delighted with his run.

'I`m sure the race will be considered and will be spoken about.'
