Caspar Netscher could return to the track in the Lennox Stakes.

Last season’s German 2,000 Guineas winner is back in training after struggling at stud.

He’s now in the care of David Simcock, the four-year-old son of Dutch Art

‘He had a fine career with Alan McCabe (last trainer), winning the Gimcrack and Mill Reef Stakes,’ said Simcock.

‘He hasn’t run for me yet but he’s working well.

‘And we can see some light at the end of the tunnel.

‘Something like the Lennox Stakes at Goodwood would be a decent starting point for him but I can see him running both at home and abroad.’

Caspar Netscher was retired to Morristown Lattin Stud in County Kildare this year.

But, after getting only three of around 55 mares scanned in foal, was bought back by former owner Charles Wentworth.
