Massaat may race against Ribchester once again in the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes at Ascot in October, according to trainer Owen Burrows.
The duo could come up against Ribchester for the second time in two months after the pair met last weekend.
Massaat finished third behind eventual winner Ribchester in the Pric du Moulin on Sunday but Burrows' charge has been in impressive form of late.
He has already won at Newbury this summer and Burrows believes Massaat will fair better when he meets Ribchester again.
Burrows told reporters: "He ran a solid enough race against the best older miler around.
"Jim (Crowley, jockey) said Ascot would suit him better and both Angus (Gold, racing manager) and Sheikh Hamdan (owner) are keen to go for the QEII on Champions Day.
"He's also in the Prix de la Foret but judging by what i saw on Sunday, that won't suit him."
