MARK JOHNSTON has slammed Ascot for switching three races to the jumps course on Champions Day calling it ‘a little bit of a large number’.
The highest coach is now uncertain whether or not he’ll run proficient stayer Dee Ex Bee within the QIPCO British Champions Lengthy Distance Cup.
Three races on the cardboard have needed to be moved to the jumps monitor because of the Spherical course being waterlogged.
Nevertheless, the course has been describing the change to the ‘inside Flat monitor’ as an alternative of stating it’s the hurdle monitor which is used all through the Nationwide Hunt season.
Johnston mentioned of Dee Ex Bee’s participation: “I do not know, I am going to take a look at it.
“For all we all know he likes comfortable floor, they’ve switched to the inside Flat monitor and there is not an inside Flat monitor, so far as I am involved – it is the hurdle monitor.
“They’ve spent all that cash and I feel the entire thing is a little bit of a large number.

“I need to talk to the owners, but I don’t know if I want to take a chance with him at the end of the year for a Group 2.”
The four-year-old is currently a 7-1 shot for the Long Distance Cup after suffering a shock defeat in France last time out.
Johnston added: “I was very disappointed. They went a ridiculously slow pace, they were all sat there on the bridle in behind the leader and in the end he’s been beaten by a front-runner.”
