Sceptical Rerouted to Diamond Jubilee


Sceptical | Racing Post

Sceptical (GB) (Exceed and Excel {Aus}) will bypass Tuesday's G1 King's Stand S. in favour of the G1 Diamond Jubilee on the final day of Royal Ascot. The winner of four of five career races, the Hilltop Racing representative posted a three-length tally most recently in the Listed Woodlands S. at Naas June 8.
Trainer Denis Hogan tweeted: “After discussing with @RacingHilltop +jockeys, weighing up all options, we have decided in the best interest and welfare of the horse–and considering long season ahead–to skip the King's Stand in favour of the Diamond Jubilee on Saturday allowing him five extra days.”
Coral made Sceptical the 3-1 favourite for the Diamond Jubilee, while Battaash is now 4-6 favourite (from 11-10) for the King's Stand.
