Southwell switch to bumper card

Monday's jumps card at Southwell has been called off and the track will now stage a jumpers bumper meeting.

Officials inspected the turf course at 8am on Saturday and found the track to be unraceable, with further rain forecast before the fixture.

The action will now switch to the all-weather track with the course activating their provisional bumper card.

Clerk of the course Roderick Duncan said: "The course is unraceable and we can't find a way around it. With the further rain due today and on Monday, we felt the best option was to switch to the bumper card."
