Marc Chan's Group 1 winner Angel Bleu (Fr) (Dark Angel {Ire}) will miss the rest of the season having picked up an injury in the G1 Qatar Sussex S., according to trainer Ralph Beckett who tweeted the news this morning. The grey requires surgery on a fetlock but is expected to be back in action in 2023.

Beckett said, “He ran very well at Glorious Goodwood, finishing a running-on fifth in the Sussex S. Unfortunately, he sustained an injury to his fetlock that needs surgery. This means that he is not going to run again in 2022. However, the injury is pretty minor and he should be back next year.”

A winner of the G2 Vintage S. at Goodwood last July, the colt scooped a pair of French Group 1s in October of 2021–the Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere and the Criterium International. He resumed with a third in the G3 Greenham S. at Newbury on Apr. 16, and, although off the board in the June 14 G1 St James's Palace S., he was rounding back into form when fifth to Baaeed (GB) (Sea The Stars {Ire}) in the Sussex.
