Trainer Peter Lock has resisted the temptation to bring talented galloper Hiflyer back into work.
The Group One performer is currently spelling after suffering a back injury.
“He had a pulled muscle over his back and he is right now,” Lock said.
“The vets had a look at him and said he could probably come into work now but I am going to give him a good break and let him strengthen.
“He has done extremely well on his break and they have done a great job at the place where he is.”
Hiflyer had six starts during the 2018-19 season with his best performance being a runner-up finish behind Melody Belle in the Gr.1 Tarzino Trophy (1400m).
The six-year-old son of Tavistock races in the colours of breeders and co-owners Sir Patrick and Lady Justine Hogan and has won nine of his 29 starts, with a further 10 placings.
