Prince Faisal's Listed Feilden S. hero Eydon (Ire) (Olden Times {GB}) has suffered a 'minor setback' and will miss the G1 Cazoo Derby, trainer Roger Varian confirmed on Twitter. The colt was last seen running fourth in the G1 QIPCO 2000 Guineas at Newmarket on Apr. 30.

“Sadly, Eydon will miss the Derby at Epsom,” Varian tweeted. “He has met with a minor setback which will keep him from running on Saturday.

“While it is of course hugely frustrating to miss a Classic opportunity, we will look forward to the rest of the season with Eydon and he remains a very exciting prospect for his owner, Prince A A Faisal.”
