AL MUTHANA, the favourite for Saturday’s Gr1 Golden Horse Medallion at Scottsville, has been withdrawn from the race.

Trainer Mike de Kock explained this morning: “He has a cut inside of his hock and it is slightly swollen. I don’t want to put him on the float to Pietermaritzburg and risk further stress.”

Al Muthana is held in high regard and he remains a contender for the Gr2 Golden Horseshoe on 25 July, Vodacom Durban July Day.

“He is being aimed at that race and will run if he draws well,” De Kock said.
