Easy decision for Fontwell

Fontwell's meeting on Thursday has already been abandoned due to waterlogging.

A further 8mm of overnight rain meant it was an easy call for clerk of the course Ed Arkell.

"More rain meant it was an easy decision to make," said Arkell on Sunday morning.

"We had a further 8mm overnight, which took us to 10.5 inches in just 21 days, half an inch a day, and there is more coming.

"The course would need a dry four or five days before it is raceable and we are not going to get that so there is no point dragging it out."
