Kingston Hill Comeback In Doubt
Dual Gr1 winner Kingston Hill (Mastercraftsman-Audacieuse, by Rainbow Quest) could miss the rest of the season after suffering a further setback, reports Sky Sports. The Racing Post Trophy and St Leger winner was ruled out of the first half of his campaign after suffering an injury in the spring, but a planned autumn reappearance now also seems unlikely. Speaking on his website, trainer Roger Varian said of the 4YO: "Unfortunately Kingston Hill has suffered a fresh training setback. He has sustained a soft tissue injury to his left fore." He added: "He will again require a period of rest before he is able to resume training. Sadly, given the time of year this fresh setback will cast a doubt over whether he will be able to race this season."
