Arabian Crown set to miss 2024 Epsom Derby

Three-year-old ‘Arabian Crown’ won’t be taking part in the 2024 Epsom Derby after the Charlie Appleby-trained runner suffered a setback.

One of the leading fancies

Arabian Crown triumphed in all-but-one of his four starts as a juvenile and was one of the leading fancies for the 2024 Epsom Derby following a very impressive showing in the Sandown Classic Trial in April. Indeed, with the majority of the trials for the Derby now out of the way, the Charlie Appleby-trained runner was second favourite in the betting after City Of Troy but the news from connections is that he won’t now be part of the line-up on 1st June. Instead, the aim will now be to focus on a late summer campaign.

Another blow to Charlie Appleby

This comes as yet another blow to Charlie Appleby following the fatal injury of Hidden Law in a freak accident soon after winning the Chester Vase last week. The only entry for Appleby in the 2024 Epsom Derby is now Ancient Wisdom who came in second in the Dante Stakes at York last Thursday behind Economics.
