Rapid Applause will be targeted at the Group Three Round Tower Stakes at the Curragh on Sunday week after trainer Michael O'Callaghan decided against a trip to York.
Since winning his maiden at Cork in April, the talented juvenile has run well behind horses like Kool Kompany and Dick Whittington in Pattern races at the Curragh.
Rapid Applause was due to line up in the Gimcrack Stakes at York on Saturday, but a late setback prompted a change of plan.
O'Callaghan said: "He's been in good form and he was to go to the Gimcrack, but his scope wasn't 100 per cent clean on Thursday morning and we couldn't take any chances.
"You need to be 110 per cent when you're travelling and a bit bullish, not the other way, so we'll wait with him and head for the Round Tower."
