Telescope ducks Doncaster

TELESCOPE has been ruled out of the Racing Post Trophy at Doncaster on Saturday week.

THE Michael Stoute-trained colt, son of Galileo, still holds an entry in the Group One event on Town Moor but Stoute, along with owners Highclere Thoroughbred Racing, have decided to bide their time and wait for next year now.

"Michael has decided he doesn't want to run him again this year, so he won't be going for the Racing Post Trophy," said Harry Herbert, Highclere's racing manager.
