Prolonged heavy rain has significantly changed the going ahead of the fourth day of Royal Ascot, where the ground is now described as soft, having been good to firm on Thursday.

Clerk of the Course Chris Stickells issued an update from the track shortly after 10am.

He said, “We've had a wet night and we've had 19mm of rain since racing yesterday. The going is now soft and we have further spells of rain due this morning.”

The change in going means that Primo Bacio (Ire) (Awtaad {Ire}) is now a non-runner in the G1 Coronation S., while there are currently five non-runners in the G1 Commonwealth Cup, including Supremacy (Ire) (Mehmas {Ire}).
