Richard Fahey is optimistic Sands will be back to his summit this month to defend his crown.
Sands submitted a career best performance to spring up a surprise that was 28-1 in the six-furlong Group One final fall at the primary cost of Harry Angel.
The Panis colt has revealed nothing similar to this form within his three races this season in Hamilton, Meydan and Royal Ascot, however, Fahey believes his celebrity sprinter is coming to his best.
“We are very happy with him, he arrived back in Ascot a little bit sore, a few little niggly issues that we have sorted,” stated the Musley Bank handler.
“He always works well, he’s an exceptionally good work horse. We are happy and where we want to be at this stage.
“To be honest, I am not certain what else is turning there at the moment, but I just believe that when we receive our lad back, then I’m not too worried about anything.
“It had been really high on the priorities for this year, but we need to get back him rebounding, and that we are not far away now.”
