In the absence of stable rider Glen Hatt, recovering from surgical repair to a worn-out wrist, Brett Crawford has been forced to cast around for replacement jockeys. Hatt’s frustration at sitting on the sidelines will have been further aggravated by the fact that Champions Stakes winner Futura is a live contender for both the L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate and the J&B Met and he warms up this afternoon in the more than capable hands of Bernhard Fayd’Herbe in the Khaya Stables Diadem Stakes (WFA) over the Keniloworth 1200m.
