Falcon Eight had been a possible for Thursday’s Gold Cup but Weld has opted to bypass that run, with the team’s other entries, Jassaar and Georgeville, unlikely to make the cut for their respective races in Weld’s view.
He said: “Hazapour will be my only runner at Royal Ascot in the Queen Anne Stakes, and we hope he’ll represent us very well.
“Falcon Eight doesn’t run in the Gold Cup. It’s a very strong renewal and I think it’s a year too soon for him.
“He’s only had four runs, and he never ran until this time last year.
“I’d be throwing him in the deep end, and he’ll probably go for the Curragh Cup.
“Jassaar won’t get into the Hunt Cup, and Georgeville won’t get into the Hampton Court.”
