Grandeur remains firmly on course for a return to America for next month's Arlington Million following an excellent run in defeat at York on Saturday.

Jeremy Noseda's four-year-old has already enjoyed success across the Atlantic after claiming the Twilight Derby at Santa Anita and the Hollywood Turf Cup late last year.

He returned to British shores with a fourth in the Princess of Wales's Stakes at Newmarket's July meeting and ran Mukhadram to three-quarters of a length in Saturday's York Stakes.

The Shalfleet handler said: "Grandeur ran a lifetime best – it was a great performance. Our plan was to use these two races as stepping-stones (to America) and we remain bang on course for the Arlington Million (August 17)."

Grandeur will not be the only British challenger, with Jane Chapple-Hyam's stable star Mull Of Killough also heading Stateside. His owners Invictus Racing tweeted: "Mull Of Killough is being prepared for the Arlington Million in three weeks' time."
