Watch again how King Of Change finished runner-up in the 2000 Guineas

Richard Hannon is leaning towards making the Fortune Stakes at Sandown the target for Qipco 2000 Guineas runner-up King Of Change on his return to action from a mid-season break.

The Marlborough handler has earmarked the mile Listed contest on September 18 as the next port of call for the son of Farhh, ahead of a potential outing in the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes at Ascot on Qipco British Champions Day.

After breaking his maiden tag on his seasonal return at Nottingham, the Ali Abdulla Saeed-owned colt took his form to new heights when chasing home Magna Grecia in the mile Classic at Newmarket in May.

Hannon said: “I would say he will go to Sandown for the Fortune Stakes. He is fine, but he had a very hard race in the Guineas and we were keen on giving him an easy time thinking there would be a lot of fast ground in the summer.

“I think he would be better at this time of year with a bit of cut in the ground. He is a very talented horse and is working well.

“I’d be hopeful he could come back and run well enough at Sandown to think about a QEII. The owners are very keen on next year’s campaign and looking at one of the races in Dubai.”
