Wincanton call early check

Officials at Wincanton have called a precautionary inspection for 7.30am ahead of Thursday's meeting.

Clerk of the course Barry Johnson reports the track to be heavy at present but is expecting further precipitation over the next 24 hours.

He said: "We just looked at the track now and at the moment we're absolutely fine and could take a bit more rain.

"The temperature is forecast to drop overnight, it's not going to freeze but the showers we have going through could turn to sleet.

"I'm sure we'll be fine, but I thought it best just to have a look in the morning."
