Top Swedish trotter Readly Express, who won the Prix d’Amerique after a battle with Bold Eagle, will not race in the Elitlopp at Solvalla later this month.

Readly Express trained Monday, but his trainer Timo Nurmis found that he will not be able to get the horse in shape to go two heats on the same day, and therefore he informed Solvalla that Readly Express is out of the race.

Readly Express has not raced since his win in the Prix d’Amerique. In the meantime he has done some stud duties, but just until last week he was the favorite by all bookmakers who have odds on the Elitlopp. Then the rumors began that there was doubt about his participation in the Elitlopp.

So far Solvalla has nine trotters ready for the Elitlopp; the field will be at 16, which is divided into two eliminations.

Ready for the Elitlopp are:

Uza Josselyn - Denmark
Bold Eagle – France 
Propulsion - USA
Maori Time – New Zealand
Ringostarr Treb - Italy
Pastore Bob – Sweden 
Nadal Broline – Sweden 
Volstead - USA
Dreammoko – France
