Rain worry for Sandown

An inspection has been planned at Sandown at 8am on Thursday to see if Friday's meeting can take place.

The Esher course is officially heavy, but now waterlogged and with false ground in places after being hit with another 11 millimetres of rain on Wednesday afternoon.

Clerk of the course Andrew Cooper said: "The rain started at about half 12 today and on Friday there is a significant spell of wet weather coming from the south from mid-morning time.

"The problem areas will all be in the home straight."
