Ante-post favourite Found is the most notable absentee from a field of 13 declared for Sunday's Qipco 1000 Guineas at Newmarket.

Aidan O'Brien had informed the public she had suffered a setback in the lead-up to the race but he was still hoping she would make the line-up.

However, a tweet from Coolmore on Friday morning confirmed the bad news for those who had been backing the Prix Marcel Boussac winner through the winter.

It read: "One declaration from Ballydoyle for Sunday's 1000 Guineas @NewmarketRaces Qualify (Joseph O'Brien)."

O'Brien also failed to declare Together Forever, the winner of the Fillies' Mile.

Jim Bolger's Lucida now appears likely to go off favourite, despite finishing only fifth in the Fillies' Mile.

She had earlier beaten the Barry Hills-trained Fadhayyil, who has been well supported herself in recent days.

Coolmore are still well represented with two runners from the David Wachman stable - Legatissimo, who was an impressive winner at Gowran just a week ago, and Queen Nefertiti.

The first and second from the Fred Darling, Redstart and Jellicle Ball, take each other on again, while Mick Channon's Malabar brings top-class juvenile form to the table.

Tiggy Wiggy, the star juvenile last season, has questions to answer after being beaten on her return at Newbury, while Irish Rookie, Local Time, Osaila and Terror complete the field.
