Dawn a possible for Sussex but Farhh out

FARHH, who was ruled out of Royal Ascot when found to be lame a week before the meeting, won't make the Qipco Sussex Stakes and is unlikely to run again until the latter part of the season.

The Godolphin horse, who was expected to challenge for the Prince of Wales's Stakes, fell victim to the latest in a catalogue of setbacks that have limited him to just nine starts in four years, the latest a stunning Group 1 success in the Lockinge Stakes at Newbury.

He is entered in the Sussex Stakes alongside Dawn Approach, who has the Group 1 mile race on July 31 or a trip to France among his next options following his return to winning form in the St James's Palace Stakes.

Godolphin racing manager Simon Crisford said on Monday: "Dawn Approach will either go for the Sussex Stakes or Prix Jacques le Marois [at Deauville in August].

"Farhh is going to take a bit of time so we hope he will be back towards the end of the season."
