Charlton pair miss York date

Roger Charlton will rely on Definightly in Wednesday’s Duke of York totepool Stakes after deciding not to run Bated Breath and Genki.

The Beckhampton handler had the choice of running all three in the six-furlong Group Two event with Group One-placed Bated Breath the highest rated of all the entries.

However, with the ground at York currently reported to be on the easy side, Charlton has opted to bypass the race as both Bated Breath and Genki prefer a quicker surface.

Charlton tweeted: “Bated Breath and Genki to miss York to await faster ground but Definightly declared and would like more rain if possible!”
