Setback Derails Fallen Angel's Coronation Bid

Fallen Angel | Emma Berry

Fallen Angel (GB) (Too Darn Hot {GB}) will miss the G1 Coronation S. on Friday, June 21, due to a setback, trainer Karl Burke revealed on Saturday.

The G1 Tattersalls Irish 1000 Guineas heroine was a winner of the G1 Moyglare Stud S. at two and was expected to be one of the major players in the Coronation.

“Unfortunately, she's had a little training setback and she's not going to be able to run next week,” said Burke. “We're not sure how long it's going to hold us up for at this stage, hopefully it's not too serious.

“It's obviously disappointing, as it looked as though it was going to be one of the races of the week, but it would have been worse if it had happened the week before the Irish Guineas–we've got to look on the bright side.”

There are currently 11 possibles for the race now, with Coolmore's Opera Singer (Justify), third in the Irish 1000 Guineas, set to be the new ante-post favourite.
