Horse Racing: Physical problems force Peeress and Speciosa to bypass Sun Chariot Stakes.

THE Sun Chariot Stakes lost some of its interest when Peeress and 1,000 Guineas winner Speciosa were withdrawn from the race yesterday morning with physical problems.

Peeress, the well-supported favourite to win the race for a second time, was found to be running a temperature.

Chris Richardson, managing director of owners Cheveley Park Stud, said: "There's a race in Italy over a mile that could be a possibility, but we'd have to supplement her."

Trainer Pam Sly reported Speciosa to be "wrong behind" but is keeping her fingers crossed it is nothing too serious.

It has been a frustrating few weeks for Speciosa's connections as the filly had only just recovered from a septic leg, which is unrelated to her new setback.

"I thought she was a little stiff last night so we're not taking any chances," said Sly yesterday.

"She's still in the Champion Stakes in two weeks, but it's probably too early to say at the moment."
