Kelso to look on Saturday before Sunday fixture

OFFICIALS at Kelso have called a 3.30pm Saturday inspection to determine if the track is fit to race on Sunday.

Freezing overnight temperatures forced clerk of the course Hazel Peplinski to call the inspection and she said the course was not raceable on Saturday morning.

"The forecast isn't particularly encouraging and it's due to drop to -2C overnight. The track wasn't raceable this morning and it's due to drop to -2C again tonight. The ground may not thaw out in time.

"We will give it every chance but I wanted to give everyone the heads up. There are definite concerns."

Kelso is due to host a seven-race card, starting at 12.50pm.
