Lammtarra, the Derby winner, will not run again until the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe on 1 October but, according to Simon Crisford, Godolphin's racing manager, "is in good form and is back in fast work".

The Saeed bin Suroor-trained colt, who returned from a 10-month lay off to defeat Tamure at Epsom, maintained his unbeaten record in the King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Ascot last month. Now he is to continue his regime of running only in the season's best races and go to Longchamp without a prep race, attempting to become the first since Mill Reef in 1971 to win the Derby and the Arc in the same season.
