Yucatan back in training

Yucatan is back in training

Yucatan will have his progress monitored closely before a decision is made as to whether he is seen out again this season.

Although the three-year-old still holds an entry in next month's William Hill St Leger at Doncaster, connections have warned that he is far from certain to run in the final British Classic of the year.

The Aidan O'Brien-trained colt has not run since finishing second behind stablemate Douglas Macarthur in a Group Three at Leopardstown in May after sustaining a setback in the build-up to the Epsom Derby.

Alan Cooper, racing manager to owner the Niarchos Family, said: "Yucatan had a bit of a setback just before the Derby.

"He is back in full training, but Aidan O'Brien will feel his way with him and see if he is ready for another run this year or if he is better waiting until next year.

"Hopefully he should be a good older horse as he has missed a lot of this year so he should be a fresh horse for next year."
