The Ciaron Maher-trained Jukebox will undergo a further veterinary inspection when he arrives in Sydney from Melbourne ahead of his attempt to get his Golden Slipper 2017 campaign on track.
The colt was withdrawn from the Blue Diamond Stakes on the eve of last Saturday’s race with two Racing Victoria vets and an independent vet determining he was lame.
On Monday the stable reported an abscess in his near fore hoof had burst.
He will be inspected by Racing NSW senior veterinarian Craig Suann on Friday with the Maher stable to provide a clearance from its own vet before the colt arrives.
Jukebox is a $13 chance in Todman Stakes markets at Unibet.com.au.
