Former Epsom Derby favourite Midterm is in doubt for the Classic with a sore hamstring.

The Sir Michael Stoute-trained colt disappointed connections when fifth in the Dante and has eased to 14-1 for next month’s Derby.

“He’s got a sore hamstring. Obviously, we’re looking at that,” Teddy Grimthorpe, racing manager to owner Khalid Abdullah, said.

“We haven’t ruled out the Derby, but it’s an issue so we’ll see how it is and keep it monitored.

“It is not insurmountable or else we would have pulled the plug already.

“At least it gives us some explanation of why he was so disappointing. We have to wait quite a few days and like everything we have got to be sure, so it will be a last-minute decision.

“It could have been a lot worse than a hamstring in the whole scale of things. We have to wait and see.”
