Waterlogged Ludlow to inspect

Ludlow's meeting on Wednesday is under threat from the exceptionally wet weather with an inspection called for 8.30 on Tuesday morning.

The course is currently heavy, waterlogged in places, and there is some standing water on the golf club bend.

The Shropshire track was hit with 96 millimetres of rain from December 18 to January 1 and has had a further 33mm since then.

The forecast is for heavy rain at times on Sunday and Monday with cloudy conditions coming in from Tuesday morning and sunny intervals on race day itself.
