Gallops scare the subjectivist team | Race News

Subjectivist is still on track for the Gold Cup at Royal Ascot despite fear of connections on Friday.

Coach Mark Johnston revealed that the second-seeded jackpot behind Stradivarius fell on the gallop path but suffered only superficial damage.

“We were scared on Friday he fell and grazed his knees and hocks but just superficial grazes,” the Middleham manager told Sky Sports Racing.

“It happened on the gallop path. It was obviously a big scare because it was him.

“There was no swelling and he galloped yesterday and today so everything should be fine.”

With that issue over, Johnston now worries about the lack of a recent race for his talented stayer, who hasn’t raced since winning the Dubai World Cup at Meydan in March.

“It’s more concerning because of the time he spent between the two, but he had had quite a bit of time before going to Dubai and clearly prospered,” he added.

“If he can repeat that performance, then Stradivarius will have to do everything to beat him.”
