Royal Ascot Day One Non-Runners


3.40 Manaccan, Chipstead
5.00 East Asia

12:30pm Going Update


The going on the straight course is now Good (from Good-To-Firm). The going on the round course is now Good-To-Soft (from Good).

11:00am Ground Update


Clerk of the course at Ascot, Chris Stickles will update the going at 12:00pm.

"We anticipate an ease in the going but it is too early to say what it will be before the rain we've had has properly soaked in." Stickles said.

"We had 10mm, or just under, and most of that came in the heavy shower this morning, which came just after we originally walked the track. We'll let that rain settle in and the ground will be reassessed by midday at the latest."

"We look set for a mainly overcast day now and there is a chance we may have the odd isolated shower throughout the day too. However, it will be nowhere near the volume of rain that we saw this morning."
