The Aga Khan has yet to decide whether his unbeaten colt Kesampour will head over from France for the Investec Derby at Epsom.

With time running out for viable challengers to 2000 Guineas hero Camelot to step up, the Mikel Delzangles-trained Kesampour would be an intriguing challenger if he were to make the journey.

He took his record to four from four when landing the Prix Greffulhe at Saint-Cloud earlier this month - the same trial won by last year's Epsom hero, Pour Moi.

Georges Rimaud, racing manager to the owner said: "No plans have been finalised at this stage. It will probably be the end of this week or the start of next week before we know.

Good Form

"The horse is in very good form - he's actually in better form than he was before his last race and everything is ticking over nicely. It's purely a decision for the owner and we are waiting for that.

"Ground isn't a problem for him, he's undefeated and he's a very good horse. There is no question about that. I think it's a question of sorting out the horses, seeing which horses are running where and then we can decide.

"I think a decision will be made very soon. Everything is up in the air at the moment."
