Newcastle inspects on Sunday for Tuesday card
NEWCASTLE has called an inspection for noon on Sunday for its meeting on Tuesday, but officials are pessimistic about the chance of racing going ahead.
Speaking on Thursday morning,clerk of the course James Armstrong said: "It's a glorious day here but not what we want.
"There is more than a foot of snow on the course and temperatures are struggling to get above freezing over the next few days, and are well below freezing overnight. We got down to -7c last night.
"We'll have a look on Sunday but wouldn't hold out too much hope to be honest. There are more snow showers forecast today."
