Kachy was declared for the Armstrong Aggregates Temple Stakes at Haydock on Saturday alongside 4-5 favourite Battaash.
The five-year-old, who is 6-1 for Saturday's Group Two contest, impressed in winning at Chester’s May meeting on his latest start, but trainer Tom Dascombe reportedly expressed some doubts earlier in the week about turning out again this month.
However, both Dascombe and owner Dave Lowe have decided to give Kachy the chance to tackle last year’s Prix de l’Abbaye winner Battaash in the five-furlong dash.
He said: “I think the horse has shown a preference for not having too many races too quickly in the past, but he certainly seems to be a different horse this year so we’re not going to concern ourselves too much with that.
“The Temple is at Haydock, which is one of our local tracks, and we’ll be getting 5lb off Battaash which we won’t get in the King’s Stand (at Royal Ascot).
“I don’t think it is all about Battaash, though, it’s a proper race.”
