Leicester called off

This afternoon's meeting at Leicester has been abandoned due to a frozen track.

Clerk of the course Jimmy Stevenson inspected the course at 8am but found conditions to be unraceable with little chance of the necessary improvement.

He said: "We thought we might have a chance but the temperature has dropped to minus 3C with a potential high of minus 1C at lunchtime.

"The track's frozen in places and just not fit for racing."
