Rain Forecast For Frankel Swansong
Champion Frankel's last outing, and his attempt to remain unbeaten in 14 starts, could take place on heavy ground after significant rain on Tuesday. Ascot's clerk of the course Chris Stickels told www.racingpost.com, "We had 12mm of rain last night and it didn't stop raining until about six this morning. The moisture is still getting through it and it's still soft at the moment. We are all looking forward to seeing Frankel but the nature of the current weather is that the ground is going to be soft and there [are] further showers due." Frankel's connections have vowed to run him regardless of track conditions.
