Group 1 winner Lord North (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}) will not race next in the Neom Cup on Saturday, Feb. 26 as planned, and instead will point to G3 Winter Derby at Lingfield. The G1 Prince Of Wales's S. hero was last seen winning the G1 Dubai Turf by three lengths at Meydan last March. The news was first reported by Racing Post.

Co-trainer John Gosden, “Lord North is fine but he has been off for so long we didn't think sending him all the way to Saudi for his first run in nearly a year was the way forward. The plan is to send Harrovian (GB) (Leroidesanimaux {Brz}) in his place for the Neom Cup and hopefully Lord North can then head for the Winter Derby.”
