David O'Meara is considering the next plan of attack for his stable star Penitent after swerving Newmarket last week.

The six-year-old made a winning debut for his new connections in the Doncaster Mile on April 1 and was declared to run in Thursday's Earl of Sefton Stakes before being taken out.

The horse that won that Group Three prize, Questioning, was behind Penitent at Doncaster, but O'Meara has no regrets about not running.

"We decided not to run him because we just thought there'd be other options for him," said O'Meara.

"The form looks good if you can take it literally, but I think Questioning probably improved again for the step up in distance on Thursday.

"We're happy with our horse and there are a few options for him, so we'll see which way we go."
