Kingston Hill withdrawn

Kingston Hill is a non-runner in this afternoon's Irish Derby at the Curragh.

The Roger Varian-trained colt was withdrawn on account of the ground, which remains Good to Firm.

Investec Derby winner Australia, who Kingston Hill was runner-up to at Epsom, is a long odds-on favourite to repeat his success.

Australia faces just four rivals after stablemate Geoffrey Chaucer was also withdrawn.
