Sat 10 Mar 2018

By staff

Officials at Warwick have called a precautionary inspection for 8am on raceday.

A total of 14 millimetres of rain fell at the track overnight and with a risk of further showers on Saturday, a morning check is required.

The track is currently reported to be heavy, soft in places on the chase course and heavy on the hurdles track with some areas of standing water.

Sunday's meeting at Kelso has been abandoned due to a waterlogged track.

The fixture, which had been rearranged after snow forced its cancellation last Saturday, was due to feature the Grade Two Premier Kelso Novices' Hurdle and the Listed Premier Chase.

However, following a 10am inspection, clerk of the course Anthea Morshead reports the track be unraceable after heavy rain.

She tweeted: "Very sad to report racing for tomorrow (has been) abandoned due to waterlogging. Eight millimetres of rain since early hours, and current heavy rain forecast to continue for most of the day."

Sunday's meeting at Naas has been cancelled due to a waterlogged track.

Officials were due to inspect the course at noon on Saturday after 15 millimetres of rain fell at the venue overnight.

However, they were able to make an earlier call with the course unfit for action and further rain anticipated.
