Chepstow Friday card abandoned

Friday's National Hunt meeting at Chepstow has been abandoned due to a waterlogged track.

Clerk of the course Keith Ottesen inspected the course at 8am but admitted there was no point in delaying a decision.

He said: "There's areas of the track that are waterlogged. We had 57 millimetres of rain from Monday to Wednesday and there was 47mm just on Tuesday.

"There was a little rain overnight and while some areas have improved, it is raining again now and there's no point in prevaricating about it."
