Exeter calls off Friday's fixture due to frost
EXETER has been forced to abandon its Friday fixture due to frost.
Two inspections were called at the track on Thursday, and the course was declared 95 per cent raceable on Thursday afternoon, but a heavy overnight frost has caused the meeting to be cancelled.
Clerk of the course Barry Johnson said: "It got down to -4.5c last night and is still -1.5c now so we've had to abandon. Quite a lot of the track is raceable, but some of the bare patches are pretty hard."
The next fixture at the course is on February 3.
