American trainer has saddled 10 winners at Royal Ascot since 2009 and has high hopes for Kimari in Commonwealth Cup

Many familiar features of Royal Ascot will be missing if the meeting goes ahead behind closed doors next month, but the American trainer Wesley Ward says that while he will not be making the trip to Berkshire this year, he still hopes that several of his horses will. “Myself and my staff, as long as conditions are as they are, we’re not going to come,” Ward said on Wednesday. “We won’t send people, just the horses.
