Kelso abandons Friday meeting due to frost

FRIDAY'S meeting at Kelso has been abandoned due to frost.

Course officials were optimistic with 95 per cent of the track raceable but a decision to cancel was taken after other areas of the course did not improve enough.

Clerk of the course Anthea Morshead said: "It's not good news I'm afraid. We've had to call stumps on the meeting.

"We were hoping for temperatures to rise which we were told they would, but they've been reduced down from 5C then 4C then 3C.

"Instead of the sun we've now got thick cloud cover and the areas that needed to improve haven't done so sufficiently."
