Roger said: “Kingston Hill will not run again this season. He ran a huge race in the Arc to finish fourth from the widest of draws. He is a horse with a great constitution but we feel that this race comes just too soon after such a big effort in France.

“He has done us proud this season, winning the St Leger, finishing second in the Derby and fourth in the Arc. He remains in training and we are looking forward to campaigning him in the big middle distance races next year.”
