Sunday's Worcester card washed away

WORCESTER became the latest course to succumb to the rain when officials abandoned racing on Sunday due to waterlogging.

Acting clerk of the course Roderick Duncan delivered the bad news following an impromptu inspection on Saturday morning.

He said: "We have had 31mm of rain over the last 24 hours and things are not good.

"The river (River Severn) has come up and is only a few inches away from flooding (the track)."

The news is more promising at  Fontwell, who stage a seven-race card on Sunday.

General manager Phil Bell said: "We have had 42mm of rain in the last 24 hours, but the ground remains good.

"There are no problems in terms of our meeting going ahead and we are definitely racing."
