Headman could attempt to open his account at Group One level in the Prince of Wales's Stakes at Royal Ascot next week.

The mile-and-a-quarter prize is under consideration as a possible starting point for the Roger Charlton-trained four-year-old.

After securing back-to-back Group Two victories at Saint-Cloud and Deauville, the Kingman colt ended last season finishing fifth in the Irish Champion Stakes at Leopardstown on his first top-level outing.

Teddy Grimthorpe, racing manager to owner Khalid Abdullah, said: "We are looking at the Prince of Wales's Stakes as a potential option, but it has been hard to plan this season as the goal posts keep moving.

"He has had a good winter and has been working nicely. Everything has been straightforward and he appears in good shape.
