Ascot's final Flat fixture of the year would have featured the Princess Royal and Cornwallis Stakes. Nicky Beaumont, the clerk of the course, said: 'There was another three-quarters of an inch of rain last night. We've had 7.52 inches since 8 September, which is quite incredible.'
TOMORROW'S meeting at Worcester is to be televised on Grandstand to fill the gap left by the abandonment of the waterlogged Ascot fixture. Three races, including a selling hurdle, will be broadcast live as BBC cameras visit the National Hunt track for the first time since 1971.
