No immediate plans for Ulysses

Plans for Ulysses remain fluid following his return to winning ways at Goodwood.

The son of Derby hero Galileo and Oaks victor Light Shift was hugely impressive when shedding his maiden tag at Newbury in May, but was bitterly disappointing when bidding to emulate his father in the world's most famous Flat race at Epsom.

Alan Cooper, racing manager for the owners Flaxman Stables Ireland, said: "We were delighted with him at Goodwood and he's come out of the race in good shape, so hopefully we can go forward from here.
