The favourite Hot Danish has been scratched from Saturday’s Group One Coolmore Classic at Rosehill.

Trainer Les Bridge informed stewards of the decision early on Friday.

The Randwick trainer voiced concerns earlier in the week about Hot Danish being lumped with the topweight of 59kg for the Coolmore and the decision to scratch her was made following discussions with the mare’s owners.

Bridge told stewards Hot Danish would have her next start in the Queen Of The Turf Stakes (1500m) at Rosehill in two weeks before running in the $2 million Doncaster (1600m) at Randwick on April 18.

Hot Danish has 53.5kg in the Doncaster.

Unbeaten Victorian Typhoon Tracy is the new favourite for the Coolmore at $4.80 on TAB Sportsbet fixed odds.

Meanwhile, five-time Group One winner Racing To Win has been scratched from Saturday’s Canterbury Stakes due to a hoof abscess which burst on Thursday morning.

Trainer John O’Shea is now aiming to run Racing To Win in either the Group One George Ryder Stakes (1500m) or the Listed Royal Parma Stakes (1400m) at Rosehill on Golden Slipper day, April 4.
