Injured Gold Cup winner Sizing John to miss Cheltenham


LONDON (Reuters) - Sizing John will not defend the Cheltenham Gold Cup at the Festival next week after being ruled out with a fractured pelvis, trainer Jessica Harrington said on Thursday.

The eight-year-old was 6-1 joint second favourite -- behind Might Bite at 3-1 -- to become the first horse to retain the trophy since Best Mate achieved the feat in 2003.
