Boom and Bust: Goodwood possible

A return to Goodwood is being considered for Boom And Bust following his determined victory on Shergar Cup day at Ascot.

The five-year-old won last year's Betfred Mile at Glorious Goodwood and was far from disgraced when defending his crown in the prestigious handicap earlier this month, finishing fourth from a poor draw.

He continued his progress with a fine display under Kieren Fallon at the weekend and the Betfair Summer Double Second Leg back on the Sussex Downs could be his next port of call.

"He's come out of the race bouncing, he's moving well and I'm very pleased with him at the moment," said Tregoning.

"We haven't made any definite plans at this stage, we're just going to have a think about things, but top of the ground is important to him.

"I wouldn't be worried about coming back to seven furlongs with him as he has plenty of pace and there's a chance he could go back to Goodwood for a valuable seven-furlong handicap later this month as we know he likes Goodwood."
