Racing: Jo Mell out of Ascot Festival
Friday 25 September 1998
But the 14-1 chance has now been forced to miss tomorrow's contest, having failed to recover from a bruised foot sustained at the end of last week. Easterby's father, Peter, said: "He's had a bit of gravel and the bruising has flared up again. Time has beaten us. We haven't any plans for him. We'll make some plans when he's sound again."
Saeed bin Suroor yesterday confirmed that Sea Wave is likely to be the sole Godolphin challenger in the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe at Longchamp a week on Sunday. Daylami, winner of the Man O'War Stakes at Belmont 12 days ago, is also a Godolphin entry in the race but connections favour the Champion Stakes at Newmarket on 17 October.
The Newmarket trainer said: "We need to give Daylami time and I think he will run in the Champion Stakes. We haven't decided finally and will keep our options open but I think we need to give him time."
Sea Wave, successful in York's Great Voltigeur Stakes in August, embarrassed Frankie Dettori when ducking left and unshipping him shortly after the start of the Prix Niel at Longchamp a week last Sunday.
His antics in the Arc trial led bin Suroor to introduce stalls tests into his work to avoid a repeat in the Paris highlight. But his handler reported: "We worked him today and he worked really well. We took him through the stalls yesterday and he jumped with nothing wrong at all. He is in good form and he is ready to run in the Arc."
The six-year-old Flat veteran Decorated Hero won the Group Three Supreme Stakes for the second year running at Goodwood yesterday. He is now likely to run next in Hong Kong.
The David Elsworth-trained Deadly Nightshade took the European Breeders Fund Farmers Day Novice Stakes to make it two wins from two career outings. Deadly Nightshade now heads to Ascot for the Group Three Cornwallis Stakes on 9 October.
The Cambridgeshire entry Mihnah made all the running for the EBF NFU Classified Stakes. The daughter of Lahib, who would carry 8st 3lb were she to run at Newmarket a week on Saturday, is a 33-1 chance with Coral.
Dominant Dancer could have booked a tilt at Redcar's pounds 100,000 Comcast Teesside Two-Year-Old Trophy Stakes after opening her account in impressive fashion at Pontefract.
