Kingman could yet head to the Curragh later this month in a bid for Classic compensation.

John Gosden's colt suffered the first defeat of his career in Saturday's QIPCO 2000 Guineas when half a length behind 40/1 chance Night Of Thunder, having soundly beaten Richard Hannon's charge in the Greenham Stakes at Newbury last month.

Kingman went off the 6/4 favourite but found himself in the smaller group up the far rail when the field split, which had left Gosden frustrated.

Teddy Grimthorpe, racing manager for owner Khalid Abdullah, said: "Kingman's fine - he trotted up this morning. We'll certainly look at the Irish Guineas."

The Tattersalls Irish 2,000 Guineas is on May 24.
