Towcester check again

Officials at Towcester will hold a second inspection at 1pm on Wednesday ahead of Thursday's meeting.

Clerk of the course Robert Bellamy had an initial look at 8.30am and reports the track to be raceable at present, although rain is forecast this morning.

He said: "The course is raceable at the moment, but we are forecast rain this morning and then to be clear and dry.

"We could get anything between four and eight millimetres, it will just depend how quickly the rain passes through.

"If we get the worst of it, we could have problems, but we'll give it every chance. At present, we are raceable though and the ground is heavy."
