Wicklow Brave could be aimed at the Emirates Melbourne Cup later in the year.
Willie Mullins' seven-year-old was fourth behind Big Orange in the Goodwood Cup last month and connections were delighted with the run and are considering sending him to Australia for a crack at the Melbourne Cup.
"Unfortunately he wasn't quite as good as Big Orange, but he ran a blinder and acquitted himself well," owner Nick Peacock explained.
"We'll see what the handicapper does. I think we'd like to go to the Melbourne Cup, but we'll have to see what the handicapper does.
"He could probably do with going up by a couple of pounds. With his current rating he would be right on the edge of getting in, I think, and it would be a big risk to take him there, with the cost and everything else, if you're not sure you're going to get a run.
"Willie has mentioned the Lonsdale Cup as a possible next race for him and I suppose the Irish St Leger might be the last opportunity to run if he was going to go to Australia."
