ANTE-POST punters were warned yesterday that Sheltering Sky is not certain to run in next month's Wokingham Handicap at Royal Ascot.

He caught the eye when an unlucky-in-running second to World Premier at York a fortnight ago but Dunlop's racing secretary Marcus Hosgood said: "He is not a certain runner."
