Towcester hold Sunday check

The meeting at Towcester on Sunday is subject to a precautionary inspection at 8.30am due to a forecast of sub-zero temperatures overnight.

Clerk of the course Robert Bellamy said: "You've got to be on your guard at the moment with the weather as it is, so we've called a precautionary check in case temperatures drop lower than forecast.

"We're forecast around minus 2C, but it's the wind chill that could cause a problem.

"The feeling is we'll be OK and we don't race until 2.20."
