Threat of snow forces Kempton to inspect

THE threat of  snow over the weekend has prompted officials at Kempton to call a 7.30am inspection on Monday for the all-weather meeting on the same day.

The forecast at Kempton is for conditions to remain very cold with arisk of snow showers on Saturday afternoon turning into a more persistent band of snow on Saturday evening and Sunday.

Next Saturday's jump fixture at the track is also subject to a Monday inspection, after officials announced a 10am check.

Prospects look bleak, with track conditions described as frozen and covered with 8cm of snow.

Regarding the inspection for Saturday's fixture, clerk of the course Barney Clifford said: "There's no thaw predicted even on the long range forecast for the next ten days. We need to put plans in place and decide if we need to transfer to the all-weather or not."
