Trueshan Ruled out of the Gold Cup at Ascot due to the Ground

Trueshan | Tattersalls

Trueshan (Fr) (Planteur {Ire}) has been declared a non-runner in the Gold Cup at Royal Ascot due to the unsuitably quick going.

Alan King had warned the 6-year-old would bypass the fixture if the ground was too quick but left the gelding in the Group One contest in case of unexpected rain.

However, no rain has fallen and with the going described as good to firm, Trueshan sidesteps the Thursday feature, as he did last year when the ground was also fast.

The Aidan O'Brien-trained Kyprios (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) is a short-priced favourite at odds of 5-4 while three-time winner Stadivarius (Ire) (Sea The Stars {Ire}) is a general 9-4 chance to regain his crown.
