Last year's Derby winner Ruler Of The World will miss the Coronation Cup at Epsom on Saturday (14:40 BST).

The four-year-old won the 2013 Derby by a length-and-a-half but was last of 13 in the Dubai World Cup in March.

Trainer Aidan O'Brien said: "Ruler Of The World worked well on Tuesday, but pulled out a little stiff this morning so we couldn't risk running him."

Meanwhile, Sir Michael Stoute's Snow Sky is a doubt for Saturday's Derby after banging a joint in his box.
