Non runner: Recital out of Irish Derby

Recital, trained by Aidan O’Brien, has been ruled out of Sunday's Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby. The three-year-old won the Derrinstown Stud Derby Trial earlier in the year.

The horse had been as low as 4-1 for Ireland's premier race but O'Brien's wife, Annemarie, tweeted on Tuesday: "We weren't 100 per cent happy with Recital this morning so he will not run in the Derby on Sunday.

Roderic O'Connor will be left in the race and is a possible to run instead."
