John Gosden pulled his colt out of the race on Thursday on the Knavesmire with the ground being too soft and the Derby just over two weeks away

CRACKSMAN could head to Epsom’s Breakfast With The Stars morning next week after missing the Betfred Dante Stakes at York.

John Gosden withdrew the unbeaten colt as he felt the ground would be too demanding, with the Investec Derby a little over two weeks away.


Cracksman has won both races in his career, including the Derby Trial at Epsom in April, and is the leading home hope for the Classic on June 3.

Owner Anthony Oppenheimer said Cracksman would not run before the Derby and could instead gallop at the Epsom media event on Tuesday.

Oppenheimer told Press Association Sport: “I was advised by Mr Gosden that the back end of the course was very heavy and that we really couldn’t run in the interests of the horse.

How often does the Derrinstown Stud Derby Trial throw up an Epsom winner?

“It’s sad, as he’d been going really well beforehand. He won’t run again (before the Derby) and could maybe do a gallop somewhere, possibly Epsom.

“He (Gosden) did mention that, so that could be an option.”
