He went on: “Estidkhaar ran no race whatsoever and he never travelled. Kool Kompany will come back in trip for the Jersey as I don’t think he quite saw out a strongly run mile. “Moheet had a bit of an issue at the gates and he lost about five lengths which he could never make up, while we also had some trouble in running. He could well go to Ireland now as he didn’t run a bad race.” Frankie Dettori was handed a three-day ban, which will run from May 17, after being found guilty of careless riding aboard Moheet. Andre Fabre is keen to have a rematch after his Godolphin-owned star Territories put up a fine performance to finish second. The master French handler was quick to admit his charge was beaten by a better horse on the day, but he was undeterred by the result, even though Gleneagles won with some authority by two and a quarter lengths. Press Association “He was not unlucky – he had a fair race. He has to come from off the pace, but the winner had some distance between us and we could not get that back,” said Fabre. “We were beaten by a better horse. It is the hardest thing to admit that you are beaten by a better horse, but today we do admit it. “One of his targets is the St James’s Palace Stakes. We will think about it. He will probably be better in a smaller field and going round a bend. Coming from behind off a bend will be easier for him. I expect we will meet again.” Richard Hannon was delighted with the performance of third-placed Ivawood, feeling he saw out the trip. The Marlborough handler was quick to point out potential targets for the son of Zebedee, along with his three other runners Moheet, Estidhkaar and Kool Kompany. He said: “He ran a super race and he got a mile, so it is conversation over as far as that is concerned. “He will probably go for the Irish 2,000 Guineas now, then the St James’s Palace Stakes. The winner won very well and we’ve got no excuses. “They still raced in two groups and looked as if they were always in front this side, and we probably finished first of those on the far side. We’re very pleased, he ran a super race.” Several of the horses behind Gleneagles in the Qipco 2000 Guineas at Newmarket could be sent to either the Curragh or Royal Ascot for another go at the Ballydoyle colt.
