Royal Ascot winner Blue Point has been ruled out of Sunday’s Derrinstown Stud Flying Five at the Curragh due to a dirty scope.
Charlie Appleby’s speedster finished third in the Nunthorpe last time out and was being prepared for the new Group One.
However, his attentions will now be switched to Ascot’s Champions Day instead.
Appleby told www.godolphin.com: “He scoped dirty, which is unfortunate, but we look ahead now to British Champions Day at Ascot (on October 20), where he has an entry in the Group One Sprint, over six furlongs.”
