Roger Charlton: Withdrawn Observational from Derby

Sky Bet

Roger Charlton's Goodwood winner Observational has been ruled out of the Investec Derby on Saturday week following a dirty scope.

The Galileo colt filled the runner-up spot on his only appearance as a juvenile at Newbury and was beaten just a head by Sudden Wonder on his return to action in Newmarket's Tattersalls Millions 3-Y-O Trophy.

Connections stated their intention to have a tilt at Epsom's premier Classic following Observational's determined triumph in Goodwood's Cocked Hat Stakes, but those plans have now been shelved.

Charlton tweeted: "Observational will not be running in next week's Derby after a dirty scope.

"Disappointing for all concerned but plenty to look forward to."
