After a couple of creditable efforts at the Dubai Carnival, Mount Athos made a winning return to British action in Saturday's Aston Shoes Puma Casual Park Stakes at Newbury and owner Dr Marwan Koukash is unsurprisingly keen to see his charge head Down Under later in the year.
Mount Athos could make just one more competitive appearance before his third bid for Melbourne Cup glory in November.
"He ran in Hong Kong in December, then he went to Dubai and then won on Saturday. It's a long year if he is going to Australia, so he needs to have a break. He doesn't need to show any more and we know what he can do.
