Dermot Weld feels Shelir may appreciate a softer surface and a step up in trip after his run in the Irish 2,000 Guineas.

The Dark Angel colt, owned by the Aga Khan, was unraced at two but made a winning debut in March this year, and then followed up in a Listed race at the Curragh.

Weld sent Shelir back to the Curragh on Saturday, but he could only finish 11th behind the impressive winner Phoenix Of Spain.

"Shelir wants a nice ease in the ground and will be a lovely horse going a mile and a quarter," said the trainer.

"He'll have a little break now and will come back with an ease in the ground and a mile and a quarter.
