Red hot Skyline Stakes favourite Menari has been scratched from the race due to a mishap in his yard last night which has required him to get stitches in his top lip.
Menari opened as the $2.30 short priced favourite in the race at Sportsbet.com.au and was heavily supported into even money since markets opened on Wednesday.
Punters have also heavily supported him to win the Golden Slipper with one bet of $8,000 at $11 being taken on him yesterday.
Menari will now run in the Todman Stakes on Saturday week.
