Queen Of Ice is unlikely to take up her engagement in the Munster Oaks at Cork on Sunday.

Connections of the William Haggas-trained four-year-old do not want to rush her after she badly needed her recent seasonal debut, when last of 10 in the Group Three Pinnacle Stakes at Haydock.

"I don't think she'll run there (Cork)," said Chris Richardson, managing director for owners Cheveley Park Stud.

"She's a lightly-framed filly. She needed the run up at Haydock the other day. She blew quite hard and William is going to give her a bit more time.

"Options are quite open, really. We're not sure where she's going to go."

Queen Of Ice ended last term in style, winning Listed races at York and Newmarket.

The Ralph Beckett-trained Cinnilla is the only other British-trained entry for the Group Three over a mile and a half.
