Meeting survives after course passes inspection
Wincanton's meeting on Thursday has passed an inspection, although there will be some obstacles omitted.
Clerk of the course Barry Johnson was forced to check at 8.30am as heavy overnight rain left standing water in places.
But he was able to give the meeting the go-ahead, and said: "We've got to take out the hurdle on the stables bend, the water jump and possibly the last fence.
"The worst patch of ground is down by the stables, we've got a line through on the hurdles course, and might have to take out one or two more fences if the rain continues. It will be wet, heavy ground."
Racing is also due to take place on the all-weather at Southwell and Chelmsford on Thursday and over jumps at Towcester and Clonmel.
