Pique Sous: Could return at Royal Ascot next year.
Pique Sous will be prepared for Royal Ascot in 2015 after a season-ending injury ruled the grey out of the Galway Hurdle.
Willie Mullins' Queen Alexandra Stakes winner was ante-post favourite for the Galway feature, and was also strongly fancied for the Betfred Ebor at York next month, but he will now be put away until the new Flat campaign.
"The prognosis is good, long term, as it's just a stress fracture," Mullins told At The Races.
"It's six weeks standing in (his box) and then he can start training again, but it comes at the wrong time of year for him so we'll probably give him a break and concentrate on next season.
"He'll probably be back next spring. We'll probably try and go back to Ascot again, that might be the first plan."
