Prohibit: Ascot preparation in France
Prohibit, a fast-finishing third in Saturday's Temple Stakes, is set to head to France for his next start.
Robert Cowell has his eyes on the Prix du Gros-Chene at Chantilly on June 5 after his six-year-old stayed on strongly in the Temple to finish third behind Sole Power and Kingsgate Native at Haydock.
"We were thrilled with his run, he's stepping up to the mark each time," said Cowell.
"He's very consistent. He's in a Group Two at Chantilly on June 5 and then he's in the King's Stand, so he'll probably do both.
"Sprinters don't tend to fully mature until they are five or six, and each time we've upped him in class he's handled it.
"He's never run a bad race for us - you could never once say he has been outclassed."
