Real World Knocked Out Of Eclipse With Setback


Real World | Scoop Dyga

Godolphin's Real World (Ire) (Dark Angel {Ire}), second in the G1 Lockinge S. and the G1 Queen Anne S. in May and June, respectively, has turned in a poor scope and will not run in the G1 Coral-Eclipse S. at Sandown on Saturday, trainer Saeed bin Suroor revealed. A winner at Group 2 level in France last October and in the G2 Zabeel Mile at Meydan in January, the 5-year-old entire would have had Frankie Dettori in the irons.

“Frankie is our man, but unfortunately the horse is not going to run,” Bin Suroor told PA Sport. “Frankie has been my friend for the last 30 years–we have travelled all over the world together and we wanted to use him, but unfortunately the horse coughed and scoped badly, so we decided not to run. It is disappointing, but you don't run when they are not well.

“We will see how he is, but we will hope to use Frankie when there is something for him.”
