Wincanton forced to abandon due to frost

WINCANTON'S meeting on Saturday has unfortunately been abandoned.

Temperatures dipped overnight, leaving parts of the track still frozen.

Clerk of the course Barry Johnson said: "It got down to -4.5C overnight, and is -2C now. The Met Office reckon we're not going to get above freezing before 11am.

"It's unfortunate because lots of the track is raceable, it's just frozen in parts."
