One time Caulfield Cup favourite Hartnell has been ruled out of the Caulfield Cup after his below par run in the G1 Caulfield Stakes at Caulfield yesterday.
Hartnell did not have the best of runs in the Caulfield Stakes which saw him finish ninth in the G1 contest.
James Cummings has informed that the multiple G1 contender had pulled up fine following the race but will not back-up in the $3m Caulfield Cup on Saturday.
Hartnell was once the $3.50 Caulfield Cup favourite but was pushed out to $31 after his run in the Caulfield Stakes.
