    Good morning from Ascot where it is a bit sunny but with more cloud and a lot cooler than yesterday. There is also a brisk breeze, left to right as they come down the straight. However once in line with the stand the wind is much lighter as the stand is an effective shield.

    The wind is really picking up now and I am sure it is going to dry out the more exposed parts of the track.

    Some more on the cross wind.

    In the straight the runners are fully exposed to the wind until the 2f marker, where it drops slightly.

    About 1½ furlongs from home they get hit by a blast as there is a gap in the stands.

    Once inside the final furlong they are well protected from the wind.

    Some significant news from the Prince Of Wales’s.

    Vision D’Etat, who normally runs with a tongue strap in France will not be wearing a tongue strap today as connections failed to declare it in advance.
