Ascot still an option for long-absent Tin Horse
TIN HORSE, last season's French 2,000 Guineas winner whose form dipped thereafter, will miss an intended seasonal reappearance on Tuesday but remains a possible rival to Frankel at Royal Ascot in June.
Trainer Didier Guillemin said: "As it is his first run for eight months and he has top weight, I have decided not to risk himon such testing ground.
"He will reappear in the Prix d'Ispahan (May 27) and has been entered in the Queen Anne Stakes at Ascot."
Tin Horse's absence leaves seven in the Group 3 Prix du Muguet at Saint-Cloud on Tuesday.
