Real World

A superstar for the yard over the last two years, Real World was set to return in the QEII on British Champions Day at Ascot but will now miss his engagement with the horse still not fully recovered from his setback.

The five year old Godolphin owned horse Bounced onto the racing scene last term when landing the 30 runner Royal Hunt Cup from the wrong side of the track and off the back of that went on to land a five timer, including races like Group Two Prix Daniel Wildenstein and Group Two Zabeel Mile.

On both his runs this season in the UK he has bumped into the unbeaten Baaeed in the Group One Lockinge and Group One Queen Anne Stakes, getting closer to him last time out but still not being good enough to put a chink in his armour.

A step up to 10 furlongs looked on the cards for Real World with the horse winning at the trip before but having suffered a slight setback, that shouldn't have ruled him out for the season, might just do so.

Having missed engagements in races like the Coral Eclipse and Cox Plate, he will now miss his entry in the QEII over a mile on Qipco British Champions day where he was a general 10/1 shot.

(Credit ATR) His trainer Saeed bin Suroor said: “He has worked and he still needs time.

“He is not ready now to run.

“As soon as he is, we will find a race for him. He won’t go to the QEII.”
