Tattersalls Gold Cup hero Lancaster Bomber is set to miss Royal Ascot after suffering a setback.

After placing third behind stablemate Rhododendron in the Lockinge Stakes at Newbury, Aidan O’Brien’s charge recorded his first victory at Group One level with an all-the-way success at the Curragh.

O’Brien was contemplating supplementing his charge for the Prince of Wales’s Stakes at the Royal meeting, but speaking in an exclusive stable tour on www.attheraces.com/royalascot, the trainer said: “I don’t think he’ll make it to Royal Ascot.

“He is going through a niggly problem with a foot at the moment, so it’s likely to he won’t be ready enough to run there.”

O’Brien also confirmed high-class three-year-old fillies Magical and September will not be in action at the summer showpiece fixture in Berkshire next week.
