The British winter is taking its toll on the horse racing calendar with one meeting today abandoned and inspections galore across the country for the early part of the week.
First some good news as this afternoon's meeting at Southwell has passed an early-morning inspection and goes ahead as planned and they go at Fontwell, sadly Musselburgh has been lost to the weather. As for the rest of the week the meeting at Ayr on Tuesday must pass a 9am precautionary inspection on raceday morning. The jumps meeting at Leicester on Wednesday needs to pass a 7.30am inspection on Tuesday morning and Hexham has announced a 7.30am inspection on Tuesday ahead of their Wednesday National Hunt meeting. Warwick's jumps meeting on Thursday is dependant upon an 8am course inspection on Wednesday morning.
