Sri Pekan, Paul Cole's main candidate from three declared for the 2,000 Guineas, pulled a muscle on Friday. "We have got him sound," Cole said yesterday, "and he has gone for a trot this morning. I would say that his chances of running are about 50-50." A decision on his participation may come on Wednesday.
Jural, Mark Johnston's 1,000 Guineas candidate who disappointed in a gallop at Ripon racecourse last Sunday, was due to work in a trial for Newmarket yesterday. However, Johnston explained: "Her galloping companion was injured in the horsebox and we didn't think we would learn anything working her on her own. She will probably work tomorrow instead."Reuse content
