Ken Condon has confirmed Romanised's next run will come in the Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot.
The four-year-old came home fourth in last Saturday's Lockinge Stakes at Newbury and following a fifth place at Naas, there were suggestions he was struggling to find his previous form.
Romanised won last year's Irish 2,000 Guineas and Condon has now decided on his Royal Ascot goal.
The Kildare-handler says despite reports to the country, he was encouraged by what he saw in the Lockinge and feels the straight mile at Ascot will boost his charge's hopes of Queen Anne success on June 18.
"He came out of it very well. We were pleased. He ran very well," said the Kildare handler.
"We're looking forward to Ascot, where the stiffer mile should hopefully play more to his strengths.
"He ran a very solid race, the owner and his racing manager were very pleased and we'll aim for the Queen Anne next.
"I'd imagine he'll take his chance in all those nice races over a mile and he might step up in trip a bit further down the road. That remains a possibility."
