The unbeaten Quorto is on course to feature in the National Stakes at the Curragh next month, trainer Charlie Appleby has revealed.
The Dubawi colt has enjoyed a good campaign to date as she followed up a debut win at Newmarket in June with success in the Group 2 success Superlative Stakes at the same course last month.
Appleby had entered him into the Champagne Stakes at Doncaster on September 15 although he has now confirmed the Group 1 National Stakes in Ireland the following day is now the primary aim.
He said: "He is doing well and he will head straight to the National Stakes. That will be his next target.
"I've been delighted with him since the Superlative and we've liked him from the start. At the end of the day, they have got to go and do it (on the track), but you couldn't have been happier with how he performed.
"What he showed was what we were all happy to see and that was a good gear change. He is an exciting horse."
