Today we copped the first major disappointment of the year with the announcement that Kingston Hill's suffered a foreleg injury and will miss the first half of the season. He is the horse I was most looking forward to this year. He was good early last season in the Derby and the Eclipse, but he really came into his own with a dominant St Leger win (Hartnell miles behind) and superb 4th in the Arc from a carpark draw. He has plenty more to give.

Disappointing news with Kingston Hill suffering another training setback, which puts him out for the year.

Richard Hughes has brought forward his retirement.

He was always going to give it away at the end of the year, but he's decided to shuffle off at the end of Glorious Goodwood in a fortnight.

And another giving it away seems to be Muhaarar.

Looks like he's off to stud at the end of the year.

Up and coming UK trainer Hugo Palmer had a very nice weekend indeed across the Irish Sea, picking up the Oaks on Saturday at the Curragh with Covert Love, his first G1 and first Classic winner.

He backed that up on Sunday in a G3 on Sunday with the Australian owned Home of the Brave (by Starspangledbanner), who smacked Gordon Lord Byron by 3.5 lengths over 7f.

Roger Charlton is looking forward to the prospect of taking on Golden Horn with Time Test in the Juddmonte International at York next month.

Time Test handled the step up to Group company with aplomb at Royal Ascot, barely coming off the bridle in winning the Tercentenary Stakes.

Given he is owned by Khalid Abdullah, who sponsors the York race through his breeding operation, it was always going to be high on his agenda, but the race now looks even tougher with the Derby winner rerouted following his late defection from the King George at Ascot on Saturday.

"I'm actually looking forward to it," Charlton told The Times.

"I'm pleased Golden Horn didn't run on Saturday. There won't be many opportunities to take him on.

"I considered a race in France but didn't want to subject a young horse to disrupted cross-Channel travel.

"Quite a lot of my horses also had minor blood issues at that time, so it was sensible to wait. We have an alternative possibility at Deauville but York is much more likely.

"The Juddmonte is a big step up from winning a Group Three but I think nine out of 10 people would say Time Test gave the most impressive performance at the Royal meeting. Timeform rated him above Gleneagles afterwards, so we have to aim high."

Charlton also hopes to have his other stable star Al Kazeem back for Champions Day in October.

"He's sound again and trotting," said Charlton.

"He'll be rescanned this week and that will tell us if we can get more serious. Hopefully, we could have him back for the Champion Stakes."

Irish rather than UK racing, but noteworthy that Sea Moon resumes today for John Oxx in the Irish St Leger Trial Stakes at the Curragh.

He's unfancied, but it'll be interesting to see if a master like Oxx can get the horse back to something like the top class galloper he undoubtedly was before he was brutalised by Lloyd Williams.

Williams still owns him.

Sea Moon looked fantastic but was beaten by what looked like a top class stayer in Order Of St George.

No, I missed the race.

Racing Post reported it as being "explosive" and that he looks a Group colt.

Sea Moon was dropping massively in class from his last start run at Sandown.
