Wintry Wetherby abandoned

Tuesday's jumps meeting at Wetherby has been abandoned.

Course officials made the straightforward call following an inspection on Sunday morning.

The track is covered in snow and still frozen, with the two-day forecast offering no cause for optimism.

Clerk of the course Jonjo Sanderson said: "The snow is not going to shift and there is more on its way.

"It was a fairly easy decision and there was no point in prolonging the agony."
