Sky Racing’s Andrew Bensley reported the news on Sunday, with the decision sure to cause a huge reshuffle of the market.
Major shake up in the @tabcomau Fixed market for the Winterbottom coming up. Trainer @JamesCummings88 has confirmed Impending is NOT running in Group One. @godolphin decided to spell. Was favourite before this news.

Impending, third in the G1 Darley Classic (1200m) at his most recent start, was as short as $ 3.30 for Western Australia’s premier sprint on December 2.
The Williams-trained State Solicitor, a winner of 9 of his 12 career outings, overcame major traffic issues to salute in the G3 Colonel Reeves (1100m) at Ascot yesterday (video below).
