Adayar | PA Media

A minor setback has ruled G1 Cazoo Derby and G1 King George VI and Queen Elizabeth S. hero Adayar (Ire) (Frankel {GB}) out of the G2 Prix Niel on Sept. 12, trainer Charlie Appleby announced. The Godolphin colourbearer will instead head straight to the G1 Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe at ParisLongchamp on Oct. 3.

The trainer told “Adayar missed a couple of days, and after discussions, we felt there was no need to press on to a trial [for the Arc]. So, the decision was made to head straight to the Arc.

“He has resumed full training, and as a Derby and King George winner, he fully deserves to be running in what is shaping up to be a vintage Arc.”
