Wolverhampton cancel meetings

Wolverhampton's all-weather meetings on Thursday, Friday and Saturday have been abandoned.

Although the two afternoon fixtures on Monday and Tuesday will go ahead as scheduled, temperatures are set to fall later in the week.

Last Saturday's evening meeting at Wolverhampton was abandoned after just three races when jockeys raised concerns about the Polytrack surface balling under the horses' hooves once temperatures dipped.

Thursday's meeting at Wolverhampton was a twilight fixture, while Friday's and Saturday's cards were due to be on an evening.

Arena Racing Company, who own Wolverhampton, said on Sunday they would be in talks with the British Horseracing Authority and the Levy Board about either moving the three lost fixtures to afternoon starts or relocating them.
