Ruth Carr will let the dust settle before deciding on plans for the remarkable Sovereign Debt following his second successive Pattern-race success at Epsom on Saturday.

The eight-year-old defied a 5lb penalty for his victory in Sandown's Group Two bet365 Mile with another admirable performance to take the Group Three Diomed Stakes.

While it was suggested she might supplement Sovereign Debt for the Group One Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot or consider the Sussex Stakes at Glorious Goodwood, Carr may stick to the level her new stable star is comfortable with.

"I've no more thoughts from what I had after the race," said the North Yorkshire trainer.

"We'll see how he is over the next few days and get together with the owners and see what we're thinking, whether we step up (in grade) or not.

"We're not actually any worse off for the Group Three on Saturday. He had a Group Two penalty so it hasn't changed things massively as far as the programme book goes.

"He's eight years old and it's quite nice to keep him in a grade where he's enjoying it, his confidence is high and where he can keep doing it and getting his head in front."
