Jeremy Noseda has issued a warning regarding Soldier's Tale's participation in the Wokingham Handicap, the six-furlong cavalry charge which forms the betting highlight of Saturday's card at Royal Ascot.

Soldier's Tale heads the betting for the race along with Iffraaj and his trainer said: "He's in great shape and I'm very happy with his preparation for the Wokingham. The only query I have would be the possibility of very fast ground.

"I feel he will handle it; however, with the injury he sustained last year I'd have to take a view on things next Saturday if the ground was extremely quick."

David Allan's disappointment at missing out on a ride at Royal Ascot at York today was tempered when he completed a 28-1 double on No Grouse and Grandad Bill at Thirsk yesterday.

Allan said: "I was going to ride Princess Kiotto in the Ascot Stakes, but she missed the cut by four, so it is a bit disappointing. But there is a chance I might ride Harvest Warrior in the Britannia Handicap."
