Godolphin’s G1 King’s Stand S. winner Blue Point (Ire) (Shamardal) will bypass Sunday’s G1 Flying Five S. at The Curragh after scoping dirty. The 4-year-old ‘TDN Rising Star’, who was last seen finishing third in the G1 Nunthorpe S. on Aug. 24, will be rerouted to the G1 British Champions Sprint on Oct. 20.

“He scoped dirty, which is unfortunate, but we look ahead now to British Champions Day at Ascot, where he has an entry in the Group 1 sprint over six furlongs,” said trainer Charlie Appleby.
