Wincanton all clear

Saturday afternoon's meeting at Wincanton goes ahead as planned after the track passed a 7.30am inspection.

Clerk of the course Barry Johnson reports the track to be heavy but raceable ahead of their all-hurdles card.

He said: "We had six millimetres of rain overnight but we've been dry since 2am. There's a

very strong wind that has dried it out a treat.

"There's one patch of standing water which they will splash through, so we are raceable and we're going to go for it."
