Henry Candy's Limato recorded a first Group One win with victory in the July Cup at Newmarket.
The four-year-old gelding, ridden by Harry Bentley, won by two lengths ahead of Suedois, who finished second by a head from Karl Burke's Commonwealth Cup-winning filly Quiet Reflection.
Afterwards, Candy hinted that he would enter Limato in the Sussex Stakes at Goodwood rather than the more orthodox choice of Haydock’s Sprint Cup in September.
"He's exciting and absolutely amazing to watch," Candy said.
"He does give the jockeys that ride him the most fantastic feel.
"I would think he'd stick at this trip. It would be rather fun if he ran in the Sussex Stakes (at Goodwood). I wouldn't rule it out totally - it's a thought.
"I thought he ran a cracking race in the Lockinge and I thought he settled very well. My horses weren't right at the time and I thought he got the mile that day."
Bentley says Limato's late veer during the run in was in part due to a jockey error.
"I got a good position and he took me there too well. I had to come when I did and I had in the back of my mind that he stays further than six and I got away with it," he explained.
"He knew where he'd come out of the paddock and he's a clever sod. To do that in a Group 1 and still win like that shows how good he is."
