David Simcock is looking at running Algometer in Saturday’s Sky Bet Grand Cup at York, with stablemate Curbyourenthusiasm also entered.
The five-year-old is expected to strip fitter for his reappearance at Goodwood where he finished sixth of seven in a ten-furlong Listed race.
Simcock said: “I’d like to think Algometer will definitely run – I’ll probably leave Curbyourenthusiasm until the Northumberland Plate.
"Algometer lacked sharpness, pace at Goodwood. Now he is another year older he is probably a touch slower. He will have been rusty – he’d been a long time off. And he had a health issue at the end of April which cost us a couple of weeks."
Algometer is a 12/1 chance with the sponsors for Saturday's feature.
The trainer also has two entries in the mrgreen.com Live Casino Ganton Stakes at the track on Friday and underfoot conditions will determine whether eight-year-old Breton Rock or the year younger Arod line up.
Breton Rock, who won a Group Two at the Qatar Goodwood Festival last year, could have his second start of the season after finishing fifth of seven in the Group Three Diomed Stakes at Epsom on Derby day.
That was a race that Arod, a Listed winner at Windsor a month ago, was pulled out of due to ground that was softer than his preference.
Simcock said: "Breton Rock going to Epsom was an afterthought. It wouldn’t be an ideal track for him but the ground came up easy and it was a chance to get a run into him. He’ll be much better for it. He will run at York if it’s on the slow side and Arod will run if it’s on the faster side.
"Arod is in very good order at the moment. He was second at Kempton first time out this year – he dusted away a few cobwebs. And then he was good at Windsor. We would love to have run him at Epsom but in my opinion he’s definitely better on faster ground. He is a horse that looks good at home. He is not short of speed and a mile is probably his perfect trip."
