Egan ‘gutted’ to miss Mishriff ride

David Egan says he is “gutted” to miss a second successive ride on Mishriff after being handed a five-day ban.

Egan is retained by Mishriff’s owner Prince Faisal and was expected to partner the three-year-old in the Group 2 Prix Guillaume d’Ornano at Deauville on Saturday.

However, the former champion apprentice has been handed a five-day ban, which prevents him from riding this weekend, due to an incident at Glorious Goodwood.

He was unable to travel to France due to a travel ban when Mishriff claimed the Prix du Jockey Club Group 1 at Chantilly last time out and admits he is “gutted” to be on the sidelines again.

Egan said: “I’m gutted to be missing out on Mishriff again as I’m banned for five days from Thursday after an incident at Goodwood.

“When he won the French Derby there were no overseas riders allowed in so I couldn’t go, but it was no surprise he won as he’s a good horse and before that I’d won a Listed race on him at Newmarket in June. Hopefully I can get back on him next time.”
