Crowd up again at Ascot

Going update after racing

The going at Ascot remains Good to Firm. 

Ascot’s Clerk of the Course Chris Stickels said: “We are going to put 5mm on everything. Last night we put 5mm on the Straight Course and 4mm on the Round Course. We are just planning to maintain conditions as they are. 
"It looks like it’s going to be fine and dry again tomorrow, that’s the forecast. There is a slight risk of some thunderstorms possibly later in the week, maybe on Saturday, but that’s quite a low percentage risk.”


The attendance for day two of Royal Ascot was 40,163, up eight per cent on the 2023 figure of 37,158.
