Hamilton hit by 25 non-runners despite passing 7am inspection

Hamilton: the ground is described at soft, heavy in places
1 of 1

Hamilton has passed a 7am inspection with racing to take place on ground described as soft, heavy in places - although that has subsequently been eased to soft.

5.6mm of rain on Saturday, 15.8mm on Monday and 22.4mm on Tuesday put the meeting at risk, but clerk of the course Sulekha Varma reported the track has been dry since 11pm last night.

At the time of declarations the ground was given as good to soft and unsurprisingly there have been a whole host of non-runners, with 25 pulled out by 1pm.

Varma added the forecast remains dry but windy, with sunny spells and highs of 15C. "It's lovely and sunny at the moment and we've got a dry day, pretty windy as well. There are nofurther problems anticipated and we may even see the ground dry a bit before racing," she said.

"Looking at reports from the other side of the country, on the east coast, I think we got off lightly. It stopped raining at 11pm and it was actually forecast to carry on until 2am, which just gave us a few more hours for the water to filter through the drainage system and get away from the surface - which was a huge help."

The only other going change overnight has come at Uttoxeter where, despite the GoingStick reading improving from 7.0 to 7.2, the ground has gone to good to soft - from good, good to soft in places on the chase course.

Aside from Hamilton there are seven non-runners each at Uttoxeter and Ripon, five at Wolverhampton and one at Kempton. For all the latest from each of the British meetings check Raceday Live.
