FAYDHAN has been eased for next season’s Qipco 2,000 Guineas after connections revealed the highly-rated son of War Front may not run again this season.
Hamdan al Maktoum’s colt made an impressive debut at Haydock last month, and had been vying for Guineas favouritism since runner-up Dutch Connection landed the Group 3 Acomb Stakes at York last week.
Betfred pushed Faydhan out to 12-1 (from 8) joint favourite, following the news of a leg injury, while trimming Ivawood to 7-1.
Confirming the news, Sheikh Hamdan’s racing manager Angus Gold said: “He’s just had a bit of a setback and I don’t think we’ll be able to run him again this year. Hopefully it’s nothing serious longterm but he is just going to be held up.”
Betfred also cut Prix Morny winner The Wow Signal into 12-1 (from 16).
