Ambivalent may aim to bounce back from her display at Glorious Goodwood in the Darley Yorkshire Oaks later this month.
Roger Varian's filly claimed Group One glory under an inspired ride from Johnny Murtagh in the Pretty Polly Stakes at the Curragh in late June, but she was unable to repeat that performance in the Nassau Stakes, in which she finished ninth.
Varian feels his four-year-old was unsuited by the track at Goodwood and could be given the chance to redeem herself at York on August 22.
"She didn't really take to Goodwood, but she's come out of the race perfectly well," said the Newmarket-based trainer.
"She's in the Yorkshire Oaks, but we'll just see how she is in the next week or two. That certainly wouldn't be ruled out."
