An inspection was called yesterday afternoon for 8am on raceday, but further significant rain overnight led to a decision to abandon being made earlier.

 

Clerk of the course Mark Cornford said: "When I got here we'd had 33 millimetres of rain from 8am on Sunday until 5.40am this morning.

"There's water lying all round the bottom bend and in other isolated areas."
