Mohican Heights has since been prepped to line up in one of the world’s greatest races in which he is drawn high, 15 of 16, and will be partnered again by Andrea Atzeni.
David said: “The owner is very keen to have a go and, with such an open-looking race, I don’t see why not.
“He ran very well at Ascot and will be sharper for that – and probably one day will show his true colours at Ascot.
“He hasn’t run badly at all in a race that wasn’t run to suit him. But he has come out of it well and didn’t have a hard time.
“We know we are rolling the dice slightly – like a lot of others.”
