Fakenham's Friday fixture claimed by frost

FAKENHAM has also fallen victim to the freezing conditions that are affecting the country, and like Exeter have been forced to abandon Friday's fixture due to frost.

Clerk of the course David Hunter said: "It's a huge shame, the temperatures dropped to -1.7c last night and it's only around +o.3c now. It is forecast to rise to between +1c and +1.5c so we wouldn't be confident that the frost would come out in time.

"We've done everything we can but we're not raceable at the moment, and wouldn't be at nine or ten o'clock, and it would be too big a risk with the first race off at 12.40pm."
