DUBAI World Cup contender Bold Silvano has bruised his foot and will not be running in the Al Maktoum Challenge (Round 3) over 2000m on Meydan’s Super Thursday this week.
There is no cause for concern, however, and Mike de Kock commented: “Bold Silvano will only be out for a few days and a short break will probably do him well, he’s been working hard. He will go into the World Cup without another preparation run, but he’s fit and well and will be right back on target soon.”

In Bold Silvano’s absence, Musir, originally aimed at the Burj Nahaar over 1600m, will be stepping into the 2000m contest along with Irish Flame, who switches from turf to the All Weather track.
