Plumpton covers whole track for Sussex National

PLUMPTON has deployed frost covers over the whole track ahead of the Sussex National fixture which takes place on Sunday.

The dual threat of overnight frost and low daytime temperatures has prompted the decision, and chief executive Claire Sheppard is confident the actions will preserve the meeting.

She said: "Sunday's raceday is a popular one with racegoers and our most valuable of the year, highlighted by the Sky Bet Sussex National.

"With the cold forecast for the weekend, we believe the meeting would be in jeopardy without the covers. We are committed to doing everything in our power to ensure racing goes ahead."
