Waterlogging claims Fontwell card

Thursday's meeting at Fontwell has been abandoned due to a waterlogged track.

Clerk of the course Edward Arkell had planned to inspect the track at 9am today but was able to make an earlier call after a further five millimetres of rain overnight, with more forecast before the fixture.

He said: "We had another 5mm overnight which makes it 108mm in February and 524mm since December 14.

"We have just got to stage where we can't take any more rain and further heavy rain is expected. It's very disappointing to lose the meeting."
