A private funeral for Sir Henry Cecil will be held in Newmarket on Monday week, it has been announced.

The legendary trainer died on Tuesday morning, aged 70, following a long battle with stomach cancer.

While his funeral will be a family-only occasion, a further celebration of Cecil's life is planned for a later date, although details are yet to be confirmed.

A statement on the stable's official website read: "Warren Place Stables confirms that the funeral of Sir Henry Cecil will take place on Monday, June 24 at St Agnes Church in Newmarket.

"This will be a private funeral for family members only. At a later date, there will be a service to celebrate Sir Henry's life. The details of this will be outlined after the funeral."
