Libertarian swerves York date
Epsom runner-up Libertarian will miss the Great Voltigeur as he is given more time to recover from his Irish Derby flop.
The New Approach colt finished second at Epsom when in the care of Elaine Burke but was subsequently snapped up by Godolphin.
Libertarian made his first start in his new colours at the Curragh but he ran no sort of race at all and beat just one horse home.
His new trainer Charlie Appleby had hoped to send him to York in preparation for the Ladbrokes St Leger but it has been decided that the Voltigeur will come too soon.
Godolphin racing manager Simon Crisford told The Times: "We had hoped to run him in the Great Voltigeur next week but he needs more time.
"He was very flat after the Irish Derby and was probably feeling the effects of a few quick races.
"We're still hoping he might be back for the St Leger."
Gordon Stakes winner Cap O'Rushes is instead likely to represent Godolphin in the St Leger trial at York.
