JIM BOLGER is still to learn the extent of the problems which kept New Approach out of Sunday's Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby.

The brilliant winner of the Epsom equivalent and runner-up in both the English and Irish 2000 Guineas was found to be not quite sound last Friday.

Although Bolger left it as late as possible to give him a chance to line up at the Curragh, he was pulled out on Sunday morning.

Bolger, who believes the ailment is not a stone bruise, reported the area of trouble to be on the chestnut's near-hind leg.

"I haven't any news at the moment, as I am still waiting for the results of X-rays and various other things," he explained.
