A setback in training will see Master Of The Seas miss out on featuring in the St James's Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot.

The Dubawi colt had been as short as 4/1 for the Group One race at the Royal meeting on June 15.

Charlie Appleby's charge was beaten just a short head by Poetic Flare in the 2000 Guineas at the start of May, having lifted the Craven Stakes on his prep run for the Classic in April.

Godolphin tweeted: "2000 Guineas runner up Master Of The Seas unfortunately had a setback after training on Saturday and will now be on the easy list for two to four weeks, meaning he will miss Royal Ascot."
