Jockey Donnacha O'Brien says there are numerous races open to Saxon Warrior following his display at Sandown on Saturday.
The three-year-old, who won the Qipco 2000 Guineas Stakes at Newmarket in May, produced a valiant effort in the Coral-Eclipse at Sandown last weekend when finishing runner-up to John Gosden's Roaring Lion.
Saxon Warrior, who triumphed at the Curragh, Naas and Doncaster last year, was running just seven days after finishing third in the Irish Derby although there were no signs of fatigue during the race.
Attention is now being turned towards the bay colt's next outing and O'Brien revealed there are several different options on the table.
"He ran a cracker. A week after having a tough race in the Irish Derby he's run a blinder," the jockey told At The Races. "I didn't have any excuses but at the same time he did back up quickly and I think it's massive for him to run so well.
"He travels well, he has pace enough for a mile and a mile and a quarter. We have plenty of options for him, now."
