Sandown abandoned

Friday's meeting at Sandown has been called off following an 8am inspection.

Clerk of the course Andrew Cooper found patches of false ground during his check, forcing him to abandon the fixture.

Cooper reported 11 millimetres of rain to have fallen at the track on Wednesday, with another 20mm a possibility on Friday.

He tweeted: "Sadly no choice but to abandon Friday @Sandownpark - unavoidable areas of waterlogged/false ground with up to 20mm forecast for Friday morning."
