Noel Meade is in no rush to make concrete plans for Helvic Dream following his thrilling victory within the Tattersalls Gold Cup on Sunday.
Having completed behind the reopposing Broome on every of his three earlier outings this season, the four-year-old turned the tables on his favoured mushy floor – popping out on high by a brief head on the Curragh to supply his coach with a primary Group One success on the Flat.
“There’s not a trouble on him this morning – he is in good type,” Meade mentioned on Monday.
“It was nice. He had a number of lengths to make up (with Broome) and it is nice when it occurs.”
Whereas Aidan O’Brien is contemplating races just like the Coronation Cup at Epsom and the Hardwicke Stakes at Royal Ascot for the runner-up, Helvic Dream doesn’t maintain any big-race entries at this stage.
Meade feels minimize within the floor is important for his cost and wouldn’t be averse to dropping him again in journey from a mile and 1 / 4 to a mile at some stage.
He added: “I hadn’t actually been interested by Royal Ascot as a result of I believed the bottom can be too fast for him. Ascot in October may be value interested by, however Ascot in June is certainly not on my thoughts with him anyway.
“I have never actually thought of the place he’ll go subsequent, to be trustworthy. We’ll simply have to take a seat down and have a take into consideration the place we will head.
“We would not be towards bringing him again a few furlongs. Colin (Keane, jockey) has been considering that for some time.
“The bottom is vital. We did run him on good-ish floor on the Curragh this yr and he did not function on it in any respect.
“He undoubtedly will not go additional (than a mile and 1 / 4). We’ll enter him within the Irish Champion Stakes at Leopardstown and the Champion Stakes at Ascot and we’ll take a look round and see what’s accessible beforehand.
“In regular instances you would be considering France can be a spot you’d usually get straightforward floor, however we’ll get our breath first and see.”
