Trainer Tom Dascombe has revealed sprinter Kachy will now not run in the July Cup at Newmarket later this summer.
The six-year-old produced a career-best performance on Saturday during the Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot.
He made the majority of the running before Blue Point took charge and won his second race of the week.
Kachy battled valiantly to finish third and the six-furlong division has been blown wide open after Blue Point's retirement.
However, Dascombe claims he wants Kachy to learn to win again and will now miss the July meeting at HQ.
"He's come out of the race absolutely fine, we're very happy with him. We were very pleased with the way he ran and the determination he showed at the finish," said the Malpas-based trainer.
"His strength is obviously his blistering early speed and I think he prefers it when he can open up a gap over the rest of the field, rather than being chased. That is why I think he's possibly better over six furlongs than five.
"We're going to take him out of the July Cup. I'm keen to try to get his head in front again and I can't sit here today and say he's going to go and win a July Cup."
