Burke focused on the upcoming race for Fallen Angel

Karl Burke is focusing on an autumn campaign with Fallen Angel after the Irish 1,000 Guineas winner was sidelined by an injury that prevented her from competing at Royal Ascot last week.

The talented filly, who won the Moyglare Stud Stakes as a two-year-old, was disappointing in the 1000 Guineas at Newmarket but returned to form to win a Classic race in Ireland last month.

Although she was set to run in the Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot, a setback forced her to be put on the sidelines. However, Burke is confident that she will be back on track before the end of the season.

Fallen Angel has some bone bruising, but Burke reassured that it is not a serious issue. She will have a break before returning to training in September to prepare for her autumn campaign.

In addition to Fallen Angel, Burke had other high-profile horses missing from Royal Ascot. Elite Status suffered a joint injury during the journey to the event, while Andesite had a freak accident in the box and had to be withdrawn from the Coventry Stakes.

Despite the setbacks, Burke remains optimistic about both horses' chances of returning to the track soon. Elite Status is being treated and could target the July Cup, although the track may not suit him. Andesite is recovering from his injuries, and while it will take time, Burke is confident that he will be back in training in a few weeks.
