Frost and snow forces Taunton to abandon

TAUNTON'S meeting scheduled for Monday has been abandoned, shortly after Monday's other National Hunt fixture at Ayr also fell foul of the weather.

Clerk of the course Michael Trickey said: "We've abandoned due to snow and frozen ground. It's forecast to get down to -9c tonight [Thursday] and there is snow forecast on Sunday, and a bellyfull on Monday.

"We didn't want to pull the wool over anyone's eyes and thought it would be better to call it off now."
