Hugo Palmer: No Derby tilt for Galileo Gold

The Qatar Sussex Stakes at Goodwood will be Galileo Gold's main target this summer
The Qatar Sussex Stakes at Goodwood will be Galileo Gold's main target this summer

Goodwood, and not Epsom, will be the scene of Galileo Gold's major summer mission reports Hugo Palmer...

"...his mid-season target is his owner's own race, The Qatar Sussex Stakes, at Goodwood on July 27."

Galileo Gold heads to the Irish 2,000 Guineas at The Curragh tomorrow and his mid-season target is his owner's own race, The Qatar Sussex Stakes, at Goodwood on July 27.

With that in mind, and having been able to discuss the situation with Sheikh Joaan about the horse sticking to a mile, it seemed a good idea to remove the horse from the Derby at today's forfeit stage at midday so not to create a false impression.
