Wincanton look again on Friday

Wincanton will hold another precautionary inspection at 8.30am on Friday to see if Saturday's meeting can take place.

The ground at the Somerset track is currently officially heavy and clerk of the course Barry Johnson said: "We went out there very early this morning and we are raceable, although that would have been by omitting three fences and a hurdle.

"It's a beautiful day today, but there is some more rain forecast tonight. If we're lucky, we could get away with 6mm, so we'll have a look tomorrow and see how we're looking.

"I think the hurdle by the stable bend will have to be taken out anyway, and maybe the last fence. That's not ideal, but those are the problem areas."
