Weekend Should See Better Forecast After Abandonments

Wednesday and Thursday has seen four meetings abandoned due to the adverse weather conditions but it looks as though the forecast has been kind for this weekends racing.

Jumps racing is set to be back to normal, frost free and ready for a a big day of racing on Saturday after earlier this week the cold weather taking over and seeing meetings at Catterick and Hereford on the Wednesday be abandoned and then similarly on the Thursday with Wetherby and Fakenham falling fault to the frost.

The outlook for the rest of the week shows a better picture with milder air forecasted to move into the UK on Thursday which should see everything get back to normal for Friday's cards.

Doncaster were slightly worried on Thursday morning after patches of the course are still frozen but temperatures are set to rise at the Yorkshire track and there two day meeting should go without a hitch.

However, so is life that if the predicted forecast is off and not correct there may be an inspection at the track ahead of the days racing.

(Credit Racing Post) Clerk of the course Roderick Duncan said on Thursday: "We're good where it's not frozen. If temperatures rise as forecast today then we don't envisage having any problems.

"If that situation changes by midday then we may have to have a think about having a look in the morning."

Huntingdon on Friday seems to be in the clear where as Cheltenham are also happy ahead of their Saturday meeting with the forecast predicting a high of eight degrees celsius, with mild temperatures and showers throughout the day. The going for the meeting is currently described as good to soft, good in places.

(Credit Racing Post) Cheltenham clerk of the course Simon Claisse said on Wednesday: "Weather-wise we've had strong signals since Sunday, and look like being frost-free on Friday morning. We had a little bit of snow last night but that's no cause for concern.

"We're predicted to have 3-4mm of rain on Saturday morning which is likely to make the going easier than it is currently."
