David Griffiths' stable stalwart may be in the twilight of his career at the age of 10, but proved the fire still burns brightly when landing the City Walls Stakes at York in July.
After finishing a creditable fourth when aiming for a third victory in the King George Stakes at Goodwood, the veteran returned to the Knavesmire for the Nunthorpe last Friday, but trailed home last of 11 runners.
Griffiths said: "All being well, we'll be going to Beverley for the Bullet.
"The Nunthorpe didn't go to plan as he was in the stalls too long before the race and that was that, really.
"The ground wasn't brilliant that day, either, so that didn't help, but he hardly had a race at York and is fresh and well."
