Fog threat to today's meeting at Gowran Park
THIS afternoon’s jumps meeting at Gowran Park is under threat from thick fog, although no official inspection has been called and visibility is forecast to improve by 11am.
The action is set to start at 1.55 and clerk of the course Paddy Graffin wants to see an improvement by midday at the latest.
Speaking at 10am, he said: “It’s pretty dense at the moment and it would need to be better than this come race time.
“We’re not raceable at the moment but all forecasts indicate it will clear by 11am.
“We’re not overly concerned yet but we will monitor it and if things haven’t improved by midday then we might have a problem.”
