Lingfield call off NH card

Lingfield's National Hunt meeting on Tuesday has been abandoned due to a waterlogged track.

Like most of the country the Surrey venue has been hit by heavy rain in recent days and after more fell on Friday night, clerk of the course Neil Mackenzie Ross saw little point in delaying the inevitable.

He said: "Unfortunately we've had to abandon. We had another seven millimetres of rain last night and there is further heavy rain forecast for Sunday.

"As we said on Friday there are areas of unstable ground and I'm afraid they haven't had chance to recover."
