Danehill Smile Likely To Miss Slipper
One-time Gr1 Golden Slipper favourite Danehill Smile (Danehill Dancer-Sly Smile, by Crafty Prospector) "has less than a 20% chance of making it to the richest 2YO race in the world, after an ordinary track gallop early yesterday," reported The Daily Telegraph. Trainer Anthony Cummings declared the hit-out was "not the work of a Golden Slipper winner" & confirmed Danehill Smile (who is "plagued by a mysterious muscle condition") will not start in Saturday's Gr2 Magic Night Stakes at Rosehill (which Cummings had planned as her final Slipper warm-up).
