“There was no secret that the horse had filling in his left foreleg in Dubai straight after the race (Dubai Gold Cup) and we bought a hell of a fright from that. Visually, that was a career-ending harm.

“Inside 24 hours he’d bought a fairly clear invoice of well being and inside a month he’d bought an entire clear invoice of well being, which was very uncommon for that kind of scenario. Every little thing went completely effectively and there have been no points going into the Ascot Gold Cup or afterwards.

“However on Monday he had filling within the reverse leg. As a result of the left foreleg had been so atypical and he’d come again from that, we hoped it might be the identical with the opposite leg, however it did not.

“It is completely heartbreaking. The one optimistic we are able to take from it’s that no less than he did get the chance to indicate us what he may do.

“These of us that had been there in Dubai thought that was an outstanding efficiency and no less than it was confirmed in what I prefer to suppose was the most effective Ascot Gold Cups in current days.
