Estimate to swerve Lonsdale
Sir Michael Stoute has revealed that Estimate will not be running in the Lonsdale Stakes at York on Friday.
Owned by Her Majesty The Queen, this season's Gold Cup heroine had been in the frame to take her chance in the Weatherbys Hamilton Insurance Lonsdale Cup at the Yorkshire circuit.
However, Stoute is not entirely happy with Estimate's well-being and will not declare the daughter of Monsun at Wednesday's declaration stage.
He said: "Estimate will not be running at York on Friday."
