Rasen to check on wind

Thursday's meeting at Market Rasen is subject to a precautionary inspection at 11.30am due to the threat of high winds.

Conditions were perfectly raceable at 7am but the wind is due to pick up as the morning progresses.

Officials are optimistic but in light of the severe forecast felt it prudent to call an inspection.

"We'll just have to judge it nearer the time," said clerk of the course Jane Hedley.

"If it's just the odd gust surrounded by not so strong winds we may be fine, we'll just have to judge it.

"At the moment we are perfectly raceable but this area has an amber weather warning so we just thought we should let people know the situation."
