Sri Pekan and Jural drop out of the Guineas
Tuesday 02 May 1995
Sri Pekan, a 13-2 chance for Saturday's 2,000 Guineas, succumbed to the pulled muscle he suffered in exercise last Friday.
"He is sound, but we didn't want to risk him on Saturday," Sri Pekan's trainer, Paul Cole, said. Cole may still be represented in the 2,000 by Green Perfume or Montjoy.
The Andr Fabre-trained Diffident, has also been declared for Saturday's Palace House Stakes over five furlongs, but definitely runs in the Classic according to a spokeswoman for Anthony Stroud, Sheikh Mohammed's racing manager.
Jural's absence from Sunday's 1,000 Guineas was confirmed by her trainer, Mark Johnston, after the filly disappointed in a morning gallop. "She was clearly not right and was quite distressed at the end," he said.
Brett Doyle will have his first ride in a Classic when he partners Autumn Affair for Clive Brittain in the 1,000. Brittain's Musetta and the Irish- trained Ridgewood Pearl will run only if there is cut in the ground.
