THE 5-2 favourite Limato was not among the 14 declared for the Group 1 Qipco British Champions Sprint at Ascot on Saturday, with trainer Henry Candy stating the ground had gone against the dual Group 1 winner.

"It's just the ground, it's gone against him – it's too soft," Candy told the Racing Post on Thursday.The going at Ascot is officially good, good to soft in places after 1.5mm or rain on Wednesday and a further 2mm overnight. There are also possible occasional showers forecast through to Saturday morning.

On plans for his stable star Candy, who does saddle soft ground lover Twilight Son, added: "We will go straight to the Breeders' Cup now."
