Oxx doubts on weather; RACING.

Byline: MARTIN KELLY

JOHN OXX has placed a question mark over the participation of Sea The Stars in Tuesday's Juddmonte International on the first day of York's Ebor meeting.

The equine star of the season skipped the King George at Ascot in favour of the 10-furlong heat on the Knavesmire as he looks to win his fourth Group One of the season.

However, with Oxx scouring weather forecasts for Yorkshire in earnest, what he has found has not thrilled him in the slightest.

"William Derby (clerk of the course) has been keeping me fully informed about the ground and I have all the weather forecasts in front of me," said Oxx.

"If all of the rain that is forecast arrives then it will be soft on Sunday in my opinion.

"There is a big question mark about Tuesday."
