Kilimanjaro, as low as 16-1 for the Ladbrokes St Leger at Doncaster on September 12, has been officially scratched from the race by trainer Aidan O’Brien.

Sixth in the Investec Derby, he bettered that by finishing fourth behind Jack Hobbs in the Irish equivalent at the Curragh.

He had earlier won the Lingfield Derby Trial and was fancied to go well over a mile and three-quarters on Town Moor.

However, he was taken out of the Classic by the Ballydoyle handler on Thursday afternoon.
