Jumps wipeout on Tuesday as cold bites
THE meetings at Sedgefield and Market Rasen on Tuesday have both been lost to the cold snap, meaning there is no jumps racing in Britain or Ireland until at least Wednesday.
Both tracks were described on Monday as frozen in places after sub-zero temperatures, while Sedgefield also had a snow covering.
Musselburgh's meeting on Monday, which was the day's only jumps fixture, was also lost to the weather after the track was found to be frozen in areas at a daybreak inspection.
Wednesday's meetings are in danger of being lost to the weather too, with Carlisle's already subject to an inspection at 8am on Tuesday. The track is frozen and under a light covering of snow in places.
Ludlow, the other British jumps meeting on Wednesday, is also frozen in places and subject to an 8am check on Tuesday.
Wednesday's all-weather fixture at Kempton has been moved from the evening to the afternoon, while an additional all-weather meeting has been scheduled at Wolverhampton on Thursday afternoon.
In Ireland, Down Royal is also unraceable. The track, which hosts racing on Wednesday, is covered in snow and frozen in places.
Clonmel, which races on Thursday, is also frozen in places and currently unfit for racing.
