The Written Tycoon colt will miss a start-studded edition of the $500,000 Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) on VRC Derby Day, but could race in Saturday week’s $1 million Group 1 Darley Classic (1200m) down the Flemington straight against the older sprinters.

“We were contacted by the stable and alerted that Capitalist would be scratched after sustaining a stone bruise to his near fore foot,” Racing Victoria’s chief steward Terry Bailey said.

“They are hopeful he might be okay for next week.”

The 2016 Darley Classic is one of two Group 1s on Emirates Stakes Day, which concludes the Melbourne Cup Carnival.

No three-year-old has won the Darley Classic since the filly Pharein (1999), the only one to do so in the past 30 plus years.

Co-trainer Peter Snowden meanwhile prepared the 2012 winner Mental and could chase a second this season with Capitalist should he make a full recovery in time.

Futures Darley Classic betting at Ladbrokes.com.au has the John O’Shea-trained Golden Rose winner Astern ($5.50), who first races in the Coolmore Stud Stakes this weekend, and six-year-old Street Boss gelding The Quarterback ($6) on top.

Capitalist meanwhile is at a current all-in quote of $9.

As a two-year-old Capitalist enjoyed a stellar run of form headlined by his win in the world’s richest race for juveniles – the $3.5 million Group 1 Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m) in Sydney.

This campaign he has raced just twice and has failed to reach the same heights.

After running fourth as the beaten favourite first-up to Star Turn in the Group 3 San Domenico Stakes (1100m) at Rosehill, he was last seen finishing third to his undefeated stablemate Russian Revolution in Randwick’s Group 3 Roman Consul Stakes (1200m).

Snitzel colt Russian Revolution, a winner of all four of his career starts to date, is now the sole Team Snowden-trained representation in the Coolmore Stud Stakes field.

The line-up is down to just nine starters after the official scratching of Capitalist, who was to have jumped from barrier seven with Blake Shinn aboard.

Russian Revolution has the outside barrier, gate nine having last produced a Coolmore Stud Stakes winner with Ferocity (2005) 11 years ago.

Jockey Kerrin McEvoy retains the ride on the unbeaten colt and chases his third win in the race following victorious rides aboard Innovation Girl (2002) and the Peter Snowden-trained Sepoy (2011) for the then Darley operation.

Russian Revolution has firmed into $10 in the updated Coolmore Stud Stakes odds at Ladbrokes.com.au, in from $12, the price Capitalist was paying at the time of his scratching.

He is out to join the Chris Waller-trained duo of Zoustar (2013) and Brazen Beau (2014) as the most recent winners of the Roman Consul Stakes – Coolmore Stud Stakes double.

Japonisme (2015) at odds of 20/1 also backed up from a Roman Consul run in Sydney for Waller, improving on his third to head last year’s Coolmore Stud Stakes results.

Firming favourite heading the Coolmore Stud Stakes betting for this season at $3 (in from $3.50) is the Mick Price-trained Extreme Choice, who also pays $7 to back-up on successive Saturdays and win the Darley Classic.

The Blue Diamond winner won the Group 1 Moir Stakes (1000m) at the Valley first-up last start and is up in distance, but coming back against a field of fellow three-year-olds.

Astern is the other best fancied hope at $3.60 to improve on his last start second in the Roman Consul Stakes.
