Gr.1 New Zealand Derby (2400m) winner Crown Prosecutor has been scratched from the A$5 million Gr.1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) with a leg issue.

The gelding was scratched on Friday afternoon, with first emergency Sound now gaining a start in Saturday’s feature handicap at Caulfield.

Crown Prosecutor failed a veterinary test on Friday, a day after Racing Victoria ordered he be re-examined when he was found to have lameness in a front leg.

"RV stewards advise that Crown Prosecutor has been withdrawn from tomorrow’s Caulfield Cup by trainer Stephen Marsh following veterinary advice," Racing Victoria said in a statement.

The Mike Moroney-trained Sound, to be ridden by James Winks, was at $101 on Friday.
