Frankel could scratch

Frankel_Sussex

Frankel is still set to head a star-studded cast on Qipco Champions Day at Ascot on Saturday as long as the ground is considered safe for the world's highest-rated racehorse.

The going at the Berkshire track this afternoon eased from soft all round to soft on the straight course and soft, heavy places on the round course after three millimetres of rain.

Although a little more rain is expected before midnight, dry conditions are forecast for race day itself.

"We will look at it in the morning. It depends obviously what happens," said Teddy Grimthorpe, racing manager to owner Khalid Abdullah.

"What I have always said is that as long as we are happy the ground is safe for Frankel that will be our call.

"We are going to walk it and the intention is to run if we can."

He's not coming to the Breeder's Cup! It's too late
I hope he does scratch and the owner and trainer come to their senses and race him in the BC!
Really hope he isn't scratched. I want to see him one more time.
