Charlie Appleby hopes to get a run into one-time Derby contender Ghaiyyath ahead of an outing in the Sky Bet Great Voltigeur Stakes at York in August.
The Newmarket handler is weighing up two options for the three-year-old, who has not been sighted this season after sustaining an injury in the build-up to an intended outing in the Dante Stakes.
After tasting defeat on his debut at Doncaster the son of Dubawi subsequently posted two wins at over a mile at Newmarket, the latest in a Group Three contest in October.
Appleby said: "He will be working back from the Great Voltigeur and we will try and get a run into him before that.
"He is back in work now. Ideally I would like to get one run in before the Voltigeur but that will be his main aim.
"Would we get him ready in time for the Bahrain Trophy or would we go to Goodwood for the Gordon Stakes? I'm not sure yet but those are the sort races we could look at before.
"Potentially he could be a St Leger horse along with the likes of Brundtland and Loxley."
Ghaiyyath can be backed at 25/1 to win the St Leger with Sky Bet.
