Huntingdon abandoned

FRIDAY'S meeting at Huntingdon has been abandoned following an 8.30am inspection on Thursday.

The course has been hit by severe frost all week and clerk of the course Andrew Morris was left with no choice but to abandon the meeting.

"We've had to abandon," said Morris.

"It was only plus one last night but when we inspected, the course was still heavily frozen in places.

"The frost is so deep, it is only forecast to get up to plus two today and then we are due another frost tonight leaving us with no option."
