Emotionless out of Guineas


Leading fancy Emotionless has been ruled out of the Qipco 2000 Guineas by trainer Charlie Appleby.

Winner of the Champagne Stakes as a juvenile, Emotionless was the second favourite for the first Classic of the season and looked to be on course to run at Newmarket when he was put through his paces at the course last week.

However, Appleby believes the colt will benefit from being given more time and will now concentrate on the second half of the season.

"The horse has done nothing wrong in his work but I feel that he is still maturing and will be a better horse with more time," Appleby told www.godolphin.com.

"He is an incredibly exciting horse to train but he is a horse for the second half of the season and he has a real future as a four and five-year-old when he is fully developed.

"The decision not to run is a difficult one but it is in the best interests of the horse and that is all that matters."

Aidan O'Brien's Air Force One remains the odds-on favourite to land the Classic on Saturday week.
