Click to follow
Sheikh Mohammed is to move another top inmate of Henry Cecil's stable to Dubai, this time the three-year-old Charnwood Forest who was second to Bahri in the St James's Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot.

The owner had already decided to transfer several Cecil-trained horses, including the highly promising two-year-old Mark Of Esteem.

Charnwood Forest is among the owner's choice of older horses to transfer from Europe to warmer climes for this winter.

Others on the Sheikh's list are: Annus Mirabilis (Michael Stoute), Larrocha (Luca Cumani), Diffident (Andre Fabre), Overbury (David Loder), Linney Head and Torrential (both John Gosden).
