Contributer will not run in the Cox Plate leaving Godolphin with two runners – Hartnell and Complacent.
The decision not to run Contributer has relieved the Moonee Valley Racing Club of a decision as to which local Group One winner would be left out of the 14-horse field.
The Gai Waterhouse-trained Pornichet had been regarded as the most likely to miss out on a start in Saturday’s $3 million race.
