Mikel Delzangles will wait 10 days before deciding if Makfi will run in the Breeders' Cup Mile at Churchill Downs next monthafter a disappointing fifth-placed finish in the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes on Saturday.
The French trainer could only suggest that Makfi's dislike of Ascot
was behind the colt's poor run this weekend given that his only other
defeat came at the same venue in the St James's Palace Stakes when he
was later found to have a throat infection.
