The Roger Charlton-trained four-year-old, winner of the Group Three Meld Stakes at Leopardstown, suffered an injury in the mysterious incident.

Charlton's son and assistant, Tom, told "According to security, he got out of his box (stall), but they're not quite sure how.

"There is a bit of blood on the wall next to Mondialiste's box.

"Whether he caught it there or grazed it, we're not sure. It's a bit of a mystery as to how he got out.

"There's a chance they may just stitch it back up or he might just need a bandage after cleaning out any infection.

"He should be able to fly (on Sunday) back to the UK."
