Fergall could have Flat run
Seamus Mullins could look to options on the all-weather for Fergall after his fine run at Ascot.
Fergall chases home Brain Power at Ascot
Third behind Champion Hurdle-bound Brain Power in the Wessex Youth Trust Hurdle – formerly the Ladbroke – he is having a mid-season break.
With a rating of 140 over hurdles but just 84 on the level, Mullins can look at some nice Flat prizes for the 10-year-old.
"He ran a blinder at Ascot, and the fact we tried to win the race cost us second," said Mullins.
"The second (Consul De Thaix) was the only one making any ground, and the fourth and fifth were a long way back.
"Unfortunately he's gone back up in the weights now but we'll just sit tight with him.
"This isn't his time of year, as he doesn't like soft ground.
"There's no point running in the County Hurdle as he's not a Cheltenham horse, so it's a case of watch this space.
"With the extra money in all-weather racing now that could be something we look at."
