Niarchos runner Passenger (Ulysses {Ire}), favoured for the G1 Prince Of Wales’s S. at Royal Ascot later this month, will not participate after sustaining a setback according to the owner’s racing manager Alan Cooper.

Third in the G2 Dante S. and a winner of the G3 Winter Hill S. at three, the 4-year-old colt returned with a 1 1/2-length victory in the G2 Huxley S. at Chester on May 10 for Sir Michael Stoute.

Cooper said, “He has an infection and it would be a race against time to have him spot on for Ascot. Hopefully he will be ready for the Eclipse, but that will be up to Sir Michael.

“We’ll get the horse right first and then we will make a plan when everybody is happy.”

Replacing Passenger in the advance markets is Auguste Rodin (Ire) (Deep Impact {Jpn}) who ran second to the re-opposing White Birch (GB) (Ulysses {Ire}) in the G1 Tattersalls Gold Cup on May 26.
