So Mi Dar misses Prince of Wales's due to muscle problem
So Mi Dar, a general 8-1 chance for the Prince of Wales's Stakes at Royal Ascot a week on Wednesday, will miss the meeting.
Trained by John Gosden for Lord and Lady Lloyd-Webber, who captured the 1m2f Group 1 with The Fugue in 2014, So Mi Dar has not sufficiently recovered from a muscle enzyme issue that ruled her out of the Brigadier Gerard at Sandown last month.
Gosden said: "So Mi Dar will be missing Royal Ascot as she is not fully back to where we want her from the high muscle enzymes which ruled her out of Sandown.
"It's frustrating for all concerned and hopefully she can be back for a late summer/autumn campaign."
So Mi Dar, a daughter of the Lloyd-Webber's brilliant mare Dar Re Mi, won four of her five starts last season and finished the campaign with a third to Speedy Boarding in the Group 1 Prix de l'Opera at Chantilly.
Betting for the Prince of Wales's Stakes, won last year by outsider My Dream Boat, is headed by Ulysses and So Mi Dar's stablemate Jack Hobbs.
