Air Force Blue Out Of Commonwealth Cup


Air Force Blue | Racing Post

Last year's European 2-year-old champion Air Force Blue (War Front), who was over the weekend supplemented to Friday's G1 Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot, was removed from that six-furlong contest at Wednesday's declaration stage. Also withdrawn was last year's G2 Queen Mary S. winner Acapulco (Scat Daddy), who was also scratched from Tuesday's G1 King's Stand S. by trainer Wesley Ward on account of the soft going.

Air Force Blue's Aidan O'Brien-trained stablemate Ballydoyle (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) was not among the 13 declarations for Friday's G1 Coronation S., but the G1 Prix Marcel Boussac winner and G1 1000 Guineas runner-up still holds an entry in Sunday's G1 Prix de Diane. Among the declarations for the Coronation were O'Brien's 1000 Guineas-third Alice Springs (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) and G1 Irish 1000 Guineas winner Jet Setting (Ire) (Fast Company {Ire}), who was bought by China Horse Club for £1.3 million at the Goffs London Sale on Monday.
