Irish visitor Ten Sovereigns will not run in the inaugural $7.5 million Golden Eagle at Rosehill.
The 1500m-race for four-year-olds on Saturday was a post-Everest option for July Cup winner Ten Sovereigns but trainer Aidan O’Brien has told Racing NSW stewards the horse will not take part.
Ten Sovereigns finished last of the 12 runners in the $14 million Everest on October 19.
His stablemate Never No More remains in the mix for the Golden Eagle and is a $15 chance with Doncaster Mile winner Brutal the market leader at $3.80 ahead of Arcadia Queen at $4.20.
Another northern hemisphere-trained horse, Beat Le Bon, is safely in the Golden Eagle field but I Am Superman will have to rely on several non-acceptors on Tuesday to make the final 18.
