John Oxx doesn't have any immediate plans for Hartani after being slightly disappointed with his run in the Irish St Leger.

The three-year-old colt, owned by the Aga Khan, was only eighth of nine behind Royal Diamond in the staying Classic at the Curragh on Saturday.

"It was a little bit disappointing. I don't think he quite ran his race," said the Curragh handler.

"There wasn't any great pace. It was a sprint at the end and it was a bunch finish. They were all on top of each other.

"He requires a test of stamina which he didn't get, so it was a bit of a non-event for him.

"I'm not sure where he'll go next. We haven't made any plans yet."
