Chances of Sedgedfield racing Saturday remote

OFFICIALS at Sedgefield will inspect the course at noon on Wednesday prior to Saturday's meeting.

The track is covered with three inches of snow and temperatures dropped to -3C on Monday night.

More snow and sleet, as well as frosts, are forecast and clerk of the course, Charlie Moore, was downbeat about the chances of racing taking place.

Speaking on Tuesday, Moore said: "We're going to need a lot of help - something akin to a miracle.

"We had a frost last night and have had snow on and off during the day. We're being realistic and it doesn't look like it will be a difficult call."
