Mayson will be considered for all the top European sprints later this year following his astonishing victory in the July Cup.

Richard Fahey’s four-year-old speedster put in a career best performance when bouncing back to form after two poor efforts to take the Newmarket Group One by five lengths.

While Fahey named the Prix de l’Abbaye at Longchamp in October as Mayson’s prime objective, the North Yorkshire trainer will also consider three other contests – the Nunthorpe Stakes at York next month, the Prix Maurice de Gheest at Deauville and the Sprint Cup at Haydock in September.

“Everything was right on the day. He travelled strongly, they left him alone and two down I thought he’d pick up and they won’t catch him,” Fahey told At The Races.

“It was a massive performance. All you can do is beat them and in this case he’s beaten them well.

“He’s in at York, he’s in the Haydock race and he’ll be put in the French race.

“They are targets, but we’ll definitely go to Longchamp at the end of the season. That’s a target we want to go to.

“We’ll see how he is. They are the four races and whether he’ll run in one or two, or runs in three of them, we’ll sit down and speak to the owners.

“We’ll see how the horse is first and take it from there.”
