Gales batter Epsom but racing still goes ahead
EPSOM plan to go ahead with their Wednesday meeting although conditions are being monitored as gales continue to batter the south-east of England.
A bay of saddling boxes at the track was destabilised by the strong winds, but clerk of the course Andrew Cooper said at 9.15am: "We are okay at the moment.
"We have a few issues with wind and various other things, and it's very wet, but we are keeping an eye on things and we are okay as we speak.
"One of our bays of saddling boxes has lifted in the wind so we have got that to solve, but you wouldn't cancel just because of that."
In January staff at the track were evacuated when gales ripped off part of the roof of the Duchess Grandstand.
