Fontwell card under threat

Fontwell have called a 9am inspection for Tuesday ahead of Thursday's meeting and they say it could be "an uphill battle".

Clerk of the course Edward Arkell reports the track to be waterlogged in places at present and admits further rain would not be ideal.

He said: "We had another seven millimetres of rain in the last 24 hours. However, we have a very strong wind that has helped steady back a few areas, hence we are now waterlogged in places.

"We are due a dry, breezy day, then some more rain on Tuesday and Wednesday night into Thursday.

"You would think if it stayed dry we would have a fighting chance, but it could be an uphill battle."
