THE heaviest rain forecast for Ascot this week is due on Tuesday
night but the track has ruled out changing the running order of
Saturday's Qipco British Champions Day card because of the possibility
of testing ground.
Clerk of the course Chris Stickels confirmed there would be no change
to the race timings on Saturday, despite a report suggesting it was
under consideration. The Qipco Champion Stakes, in which Frankel will
star, is the fifth of the six races on the card.
He said: "What I confirmed was that the running order change was
theoretically possible, but we are not going to make any changes. The
track is soft, it's in good shape."
