Purple has been scratched from the 2011 Coolmore Classic Field

The latest news in regards to tomorrow’s $600,000 Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m) at Rosehill is that Peter Snowden’s five-year-old Commands mare Purple has been scratched from the field.

The latest scratching leaves 15 fillies and mares in contention to become the Coolmore Classic winner when Rosehill Race 7 jumps at 4:10pm (AEDST) tomorrow after Lady Lynette was also withdrawn from the showdown earlier this morning.

Both of the scratched horses were removed from the Coolmore Classic field due to an elevated temperature.

Purple was set to resume racing in the Coolmore Classic following a successful spring campaign.

At her last run the Sheikh Mohammed-owned dual Group 1 winner ran second to Well Rounded in the Group 2 Matriarch Stakes (2000m) at Flemington on Emirates Stakes Day, November 2, 2010.

Snowden has informed Racing NSW stewards that he expects Purple to make a full recovery and that she will return later in the autumn.

Luxbet had Purple rated as a $26 shot in their Coolmore Classic odds.

In the Coolmore Classic barrier draw Purple was allocated gate 12.

This means #10 More Strawberries (16), #17 Turnstiles (15), #11 Strawberry Field (14) and #9 Montana Flyer (13) all move in one barrier for tomorrow.

Coolmore Classic betting is still lead by $5 favourite Aloha while other top fancies in the Luxbet odds include More Strawberries ($7), Melito ($8) and Palacio De Cristal ($8.50).
